Overall I'm happy but it's lacking for the price point

Summary: I bought the Vibe when it first came out. My daughters were two years and 3 months, respectively. Pros: -Handles extremly well, very easy/smooth to maneuver - esp on busy city streets. Doesn't go all wonky when you hit a bump. -Constructed well - I've used this stroller a ton these past two years and I've not had a problem with anything breaking, and no problems with the tires (I've just had to pump them up a handful of times each year) -Once you get the hang of folding...
Summary: we have had the vibe for a year - the tires have worn through and the inner tubes burst - its hard to get the replacement tires as they are 'backordered' at Phil & Teds, also the front wheel has an annoying wobble that makes steering hard - usually we have to have the wheel locked so that we can stay in a straight line and not shake the babies to bits!
Summary: I use this bag to hold the double and single storm covers, its a real squeeze though!. The large section just takes the double cover and makes the very bulky cover more compact and contained. The smaller section is more accessible (at front rather than IN the bottom storage section)and has room to take a few nappies, wipes and a hat or muslin. I find it hard to always remember to take the bag with me as you have to remove it from base before folding.
Summary: I was so excited to get this stroller and I had never planned to spend so much on a stoller but thought it would be worth it. It does handle great and is easier to stear with one hand than my single stroller. In use, its just as compact and nice as a single stroller. I don't have a problem with the sunshade like some other reviewers other than it is in the way if you use the handle in the highest position which I do even though I'm only 5'4".
Summary: We purchased this stroller for the birth of our first child, we thought getting a stroller that can be used as a doubles stroller would be nice so that if we have another child in the future we do not have to buy a new stroller. Although the stroller looks great and pushes very smoothly I have two main complaints: My biggest complaint is that there is no car seat adapter available for it - this is really annoying!
Summary: We've had this stroller for 2 weeks now and I have to say I'm quite disappointed. 1. The back seat is too short to fit a child over the age of say 1 year, as the head goes beyond the metal frame 2. my personal biggest disappointment - The handle. Living in New York City, I often need to maneuver between people and corners and this handle is just not wide enough to have a good grip.
Summary: I researched doubles for months and after buying and returning a side-by-side finally took the plunge and bought the Vibe. For me, it was not a good buy. First, the positives. FINALLY, Phil and Ted's has designed a sun canopy that offers decent coverage. The shade rotates freely and also slides up and down the frame, which is helpful in creating head room for the toddler in the infant/toddler mode.
Summary: After doing a lot of research on the web I decided to buy this stroller for our 3rd baby. My 2 older kids (2 & 5) both love to ride in a stroller so I knew I needed a double but didn't want to traditional double - I had the McLaren Twin but didn't use it as much as I thought so I gave it to a friend who was having twins. I like the option of it converting from a single to double.
Excerpt: I took this one for a spin and found that my 19 month old daughter is already too tell for the toddler seat. We had her on the front as we are expecting baby 2 and he will be at the back, flat. The toddlers seat can go up and down to accomodate extra long legs but the hard sticky out bit at the top of the toddlers seat is right in the middle of the back of my daughters head. She is far too young to walk everywhere I want to go which is why we need a double.
" I am really very disappointed with the P&T Vibe and… "

Excerpt: I am really very disappointed with the P&T Vibe and feel it has been a huge waste of money and am selling it after only 4 months. I have 28 month old and a 4 month old and I'm not satissified with the comfort that the pushchair provides for either child. The doubles seat is far to small for my older child (who is skinny but tall for age) and offers this child no head support at all and the harness just fits.
