Perfect and worth every penny!

Summary: This pram system is worth every penny. Yes it is expensive but you get value for money. We have had the pram for ten months now since my daughter was born and we have loved it for several reasons: - the fact that the matching Venture car seat can be clipped in to the chassis. Brilliant for newborns. - the pram can be placed forward facing to see the outside world and facing you. My daughter loves seeing me and talking to me whilst we discuss what she can see.
Lovely good value Pram/pushchair with all matching acessories included in the price.

Summary: Great value and both my son (nearly 1) and I love it, but it may be better suited to people with large car boots or people that walk everywhere. Because you can adjust the seat position with baby/child in it, my son often falls asleep sitting and I lower him to flat without waking him.
Pros: Brilliant value for money as everything you need is included in the price (Raincover, change bag, footmuff etc). You get one pram/seat unit that can be adjusted from lying flat to sitting up and vice versa. Super cosy padded footmuff with a seperate cover that goes over and can be fixed up onto the hood. The hood is also very large and when seat is upright the hood can come down and cover the whole seat, to protect little one fron the sun. Lockable front swivel wheels...
Cons: You have to remove the seat unit before folding the frame so its not the quickest if just popping to the shops, its also very large when folded, I have a Ford Focus and I have to put the frame in 1st with the seat unit on top and it fills the entire boot! Plus I can only get it in the boot when I have put the seat unit back to flat and the leg bit up as well, so takes a long time!
Summary: Value for money package with the accessories included.
Pros: Fantastic 2 in 1 pram, lovely cosy footmuff that can have the top taken off on warmer days to leave a padded liner. Nice big hood to protect baby from the elements and matching apron for making a really cosy carrycot for newborns. Big wheels to make rougher ground easy to ride over, simple to use brake, nice size shopping basket. Height adjustable handle bar perfect for different height parents. Easy to fold/unfold and the all important forward/rearward facing. It is ...
Cons: Quite bulky when folded so a decent size carboot would be essential.
Excerpt: I absolutely loved the Freeway when our daughter was born in December, the carrycot is beautifully padded and she was always so warm and comfortable in there. However, that's where the positives start and end. The pram quickly became way too heavy to push; I have no idea how Silver Cross can advertise this pram as lightweight, it is a beast! It's also massive when folded and really hard to get into the boot (Vauxhall Astra), it takes up the whole boot.
Excerpt: This has been a nightmare, I have the full set, wheels with pram, car seat and isofix (£725) two weeks after buying the handle burst, the plastic around the wheels is so cheaply made it's scuffed and chipped, the wheels are at times impossible to close down, it takes up so much space it cannot fit in my boot it is in the back seat next to my baby which is less than ideal, the car seat is heavy without the baby, there is no space in the under basket, impossible at times...
Excerpt: Brought this once my little one grew out of the carry cot on the 3D. It is a lovely pram looks very comfy and warm with the cosy toes. Love how it turns into a pushchair that you can have baby face you or out into the world, easy to change position from sitting up to laying flat Feels very steady and safe. Only problem I have is with the size. Due to it being so big it can be a problem fitting into cars or using public transport. Would recommend this pram though.

Excerpt: Purchased a linear freeway in March of this year, i love the pram, so cosy, although it is a larger pram, the chassis does stand on its own and fits well in the boot of our Ford Cmax, and is incredibly light when used with the car seat attachment! My only moan, is the fact i can't seem to get the pram top off! It is touch and go each day if i can remove it! Mothercare stated it is just the way the pram is and you need to be taller to do it!
Excerpt: I started looking at prams just after my 20 week scan as I didn't want to look at prams that may have been too girly for a boy. My parents were buying the pram for us so they took me and my partner pram shopping one weekend. I originally fell in love with the baby style ts2 (didn't have a big budget) but the shop didn't have the colours we wanted, so we went to a couple of more shops, and that's when I seen the silvercross linear freeway.
