I bought the stroller a few months before my son was born, and he is now 9 months old. We were looking for a jogging stroller that would be easy to use while running, taking walks throughout the neighborhood, transport back and forth between grandma's house, and strolls through town. It does a decent job with all of those things. Pros: 1. When we were using our Graco Click Connect 35 car seat to 'hook into' the stroller when our son was a few months old, it worked great. You can feel confident that the car seat is locked in place when you hear the "click" sound. 2. Adequate amount of storage up top for cell phones, water, keys, etc. I would like for the storage compartment to lock closed though...especially when transporting the stroller in the car so those small items like hand sanitizer don't fall out. 3. Its fairly easy to run and walk with. Not to heavy, and not too light. Cons: 1. The sunshade won't stay in place... when we hit a small bump (on the sidewalk) the sunshade pulls back, and the sun gets in my baby's eyes. 2. The front wheel is always getting "stuck" in place, and I have to lift the front wheel off the ground to get the stroller to move again. 3. Its not the most comfortable place for my son to sit in for a prolonged period of time. He always manages to slide over to the side, or slide down in the seat. Overall, I got my money's worth of a stroller. If I had to do it again I probably would have saved more money or gift cards and splurged on a BOB stroller. Sorry Graco!
I am a bit concerned that it might not last, but I'm going to give it a try as I cannot wait to return and try something else. The extension that it comes with is pretty flimsy. When my dogs jump on it, it moves quite a bit and I feel that it will be only a matter of time before it comes apart BECAUSE of the extension so that it can fit int he doorway from our kitchen into the hallway. We have a different one that has a different type of extension, that is a lot more sturdy than this one, and I was hoping it was going to be the same, but it is not. That is my only complaint. The color is perfect and matches the kitchen perfectly, the height keeps the cats from jumping too. Aside from the flimsiness BECAUSE of the extension, it is what we needed.
Had similar problems as others with front wheel lock, however I followed advice by other reviewer to cut the spring down a 1/4 in.. Actually, I ended up completely removing spring and lock and replacing black part above wheel. I also removed front tire and cleaned/oiled joint before putting back on; we're running smoothly now! Our son is 2, almost 3, now, and we've used this stroller for jogs (we ran a 5k with this stroller), walks and mall trips. My only other concern is the size and weight of the stroller.. I can imagine this would be hard to lift and maneuver for someone petite; its almost like strength training during a run with my 30lb child in my 30lb stroller. I put my iPhone in one of the cup holders as sadly, it doesn't fit in the phone holder (4 cup holders is definitely a plus though) Basket is a good size! Canopy opens but doesn't stay fully open. Seat is in recline position once stroller is opened and can be pushed forward allowing child to sit upright but I've yet to figure out how to reposition the seat in the reclining position without folding the stroller completely. Ultimately I love the stroller. It's not perfect, but I couldn't afford perfect (aka a BOB) at the time; this is a nice stroller for the price.
