Excerpt: I bought this stroller second hand for a very low price but even thought I paid too much for it. First off it was way too bulky for just one kid. The convenience of modern day strollers should be its accessibility and weight. My parents and in laws had a hard time folding it and complained it was too complicated and even though the frame by itself and the seat or bassinet were light, together it was heavy and inconvenient for cars with smaller trunks.
Excerpt: My cousin has this Vista Stroller Travel System. I've used it to push my niece whenever we're out for a walk around the neighborhood. It's easy to steer so it's not hard whenever I need to make a turn. My niece enjoys getting rides in it because she gets to see dogs and birds as we go along. I didn't ask my cousin how much it cost, so I don't know if it's expensive or not. It's a fine product from my experience.
Excerpt: This is almost a great stroller. You can read all the details and benefits but let me summarize what we don't like about it: - The brake is foot activated on the right side of the stroller. It works by pushing down once, and then pushing down again to release. It is not as handy, convenient or easy to use as the hand-operated cable units found on competitors.
Excerpt: We were (are) still deciding between the Vista and Peg Prego Book Plus. We saw book plus first and we really loved it. But after reading reviews (mostly positive) regarding the Vista, we thought we check it out and we went into the store with the mentality that we want to buy the vista because everyone seems to love it....but, unfortunately I was not impressed at all! and my wife was so-so about it. You have all heard the great stuff about it, so I won't repeat those.
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.
