Summary: Among the many choices of strollers out there, I picked this one because of the quality and the reasonable price. Why spend so much $$ on Bugaboo when this is very comparable if not better. The style and look is excellent. I would have given this a 5, however, the frame is very heavy ('welded aluminium alloy'), but-- it makes a steady frame, I guess it's a good thing. You definitely need alot of core and back strength to lift this in and out of your trunk!
Summary: The chain fell apart on this cup holder as many other customer alluded to. Instead of returning it, I went to Lowes and purchased some replacement chains where the links are welded together. 10ft section costs about $8. I spend about 30 min and replaced all of the chains and it now works very well. However, Uppababy should have used better quality material for something that costs $24.
Good stroller, but a very rough ride on brick sidewalks

Summary: There are a lot of things to love about this stroller. For me, the best thing is that it's one of the few strollers designed for tall people. The handle extends to a reasonable length for a 6'4" person. There is no through-axle, but instead an arch that gives plenty of space for your feet when walking. On other strollers I'd end up kicking the stroller when walking.
Excerpt: We have had our Uppa for 17 months and in general it is fabulous - comfy, easy to maneouvre, big storage basket, great wheels and brakes, integrated sunshade is fab. Any components with problems (eg stitching coming undone on the basket and bassinet) have been very promptly replaced. BUT recently my DD had her finger trapped between the frame and the seat, as I moved the seat from the recline position back to upright. It was horrific.
Summary: Looks lovely, but there's a common problem of the right wheel not touching the floor, I'm guessing due to irregularities in the frame. Seems to be widely reported on baby forums. Ours had this, plus the cot mechanism was faulty from new so we couldn't remove the cot. Not a good start!
Excerpt: I was really pleased with my purchase initially, but after using it for 9 months there are some irritating issues which are making me consider getting rid: Folding: the basket keeps getting caught in the front wheels, so when you come to unfold, the frame gets jammed and you have to force the basket back through the wheel space to get it opened. When your baby is crying and you're struggling in the rain this is super annoying.
