  1. mommy of 2 on June 24th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I love it! I would recommend it to anyone

  2. 3rd shift mama on June 28th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I wanted the versatility of the car seat and stroller. Seeking maneuverbility and sleek design. I feel in love with the 360 degree turn. The car seat is versitile enough fo rme and hubby and sturdy enough to take a bump or two. We purchased the additional car seat base for my hubbys car which was a great decision. Easy to use (once assembled) the car sea tis a snap and allows two full size adults to enjoy the comforts of the back seat. I would only recommend purchasing if you have a SUV as the stroller is bulky and requires ample room. The stroller takes oth hands to open but is easy to do. Lots of storage if you are a shop a holic 🙂 and has a cupholder, a secret compartment to place keys, cellphone etc. Such a nice ride for baby!

    I AM A FIRST TIME MOM AND I DIDNT KNOW WHICH STROLLER WAS THE RIGHT STROLLER BUT THIS ONE IS IT ….I JUST BOUGHT THIS TRAVEL SET AND I LOVE IT… IT IS VERY EASY TO SET UP … NOT HEAVY PERFECT WEIGHT CAUSE I AM ONLY 5’1 … OH AND THE COLOR IS LOVELY …

  4. Melissa on July 1st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    Great stroller and car seat. Very easy to handle. Built in music dock is a great feature.

  5. Mom of 3 boys on July 2nd, 2010 at 12:00 am

    Great stroller. THis is the updated version of the Expedition LX. I have used Baby Trend expedition for 4 years and have no complaints. I highly recommend the warrenty too. It covers normal wear such as slight rips in fabric and bald tires. No questions asked they replace the full system!

  6. Jena on July 8th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    Low quality product! The sun shade for the stroller without the car seat attached does not adjust to protect baby from the sun. I used it for the first time without the car seat now that my son is old enough (too late to return the product) and hadn’t noticed the thin uncomfortable looking straps used to buckle him in. He seemed content enough, so we went out walking, away from the sun for the first half, but when we turned toward home, I tried to adjust the sun shade to keep him shaded and noticed it is attached to the frame of the stroller at the top and would not move forward to cover him. I ended up pulling the stroller behind me and occasionally walking backward just to be comfortable – not exactly safe.

    I wish I had never bought this stroller. It is so bulky that it has to be jammed into my standard sized trunk and the basket below is made of such cheap material that it tears when I do it.

    The stoller is also very heavy and difficult to steer, which makes it impossible to jog with, the whole reason I bought it in the first place.

    Very disappointed and almost embarrassed that I bought this. Whoever designed this product…

  7. Happy Mother of 2 on July 10th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is very easy to push and steer. The carrier fits in perfectly without any trouble. Like previously mentioned the warrenty is a must have. If you do need to "jam" it into your trunk and something ripes no biggie it will be replaced or upgraded.

  8. Mia & Ian's Mommy on July 11th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is absolutely awesome. It swivels around so effortlessly and is easy to use for walking and running. A super great feature is the movable visor. You can angle it so your baby’s face is never in the sun. Everything is great, however the built in speakers are a joke. The volume is too low to hear. Who needs speakers in a stroller anyways!

  9. First time mom... on July 15th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    The stroller is nice and versatile, but the inner tubes for the tires are horrible. Within the first 2 months (not using it often) both back tires were flat. When we called to replace, they sent new ones but informed us that next time we should just go to a bike shop?!? (Didn’t like the fact that their product failed and they suggested we pay for it) Then within the next month, the front tire and left back one (again) were both flat… sheesh. I am walking with the stroller daily now, but not off-roading or anything. So, the tires aren’t built to withstand even the smallest sand spire. Just a heads up. Also, most other carseats can go to forward position once the child is old enough… not an option with Baby Trend. I would have done more research had I know about that one.

  10. premie mommy on July 18th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I was so excited about getting this stroller because I really just wanted a jogger and it was perfect to come with a carseat. However, I ended up having my daughter at 35 weeks instead of 40. At the time I did not realize all the differences with carseats and really didnt find it important the stroller would not recline down far, because after all its a jogger. My daughter is too short for the carseat to fit properly (she is 20 inches) and yes she is 5 ibs, matter of fact she is 6 ibs. Do not let weight limits fool you. You must check the heigth of the carseat straps! Also the carseat made it very difficult for her to breathe. After the carseat being useless it was pointless to spend the 220 for both. And I would have just said forget it and keep the stroller for later, but I am also disappointed the canopy does not move to protect the baby from wind/sun. I was actually shocked about that. If your baby is full term, this still may be a good stroller for you. It has nice reflective material and is a nice jogger, smooth ride. I suggest wait to ensure your baby is not going to be a premie or you will be like me returning this stroller system for the Chicco. After several other car seat buys. ALL MOTHERS: BE WARNED, babies are unpredictable. Even if you were full term with your first, second, or even third, your next can be a premie which means you will most likely need smaller fitting or specialized baby gear. Wait until you KNOW your baby will be big enough for the stuff you buy. Especially the carseat. It is about saftey!

  11. Third time Mom on July 19th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I like the fact I can walk with him on my country roads and not worry about it falling apart. the speaker are a little weak but usable!

  12. Grampa again! on July 21st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I don’t use it, my daughter does.

  13. loulou on July 21st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I’am a new mommy i really like the stroller but does the seat go flat ????????? so the baby can sleep any idea guys .
    thank you

  14. Jillian on July 25th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    Great stroller very sturdy and durable.

  15. Digital love on July 30th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. The mp3 speakers are sooo cool! I can’t wait to take my buggaboo for a ride. I have a marathon to run in Dec.It comes with this really cool latch to install in the car.

  16. MOMMY on July 30th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    THE CAR SEAT IS TERRIBLE IS TO INCLINED AND MY SON AS A NEWBORN WAS MOVING ALL OVER THE PLACE ALSO THE MATERIAL OF THE SEAT MEADE HIM SWEAT SO MUCH!!! HE CAN NEVER NAP IN HIS CAR SEAT I CAN NEVER LEAVE HIM ALONE IN IT EVERYTIME WE ARE IN THE CAR I HAVE TO PUT MY HAND IN HIS CHEST SO THAT HIS HEAD DOESNT COME FOWARD ALSO IN THE STROLLER I CAN NEVER BE SURE I HATED THIS PRODUCT AND THE STROLLER DOESNT GO DOWN ALL THE WAY SO HE CANT FALL ASLEEP TERRIBLE TERRIBLE PRODUCT….VERY DISATISFIED THIS STROLLER SHOULD BE RECOMENDED FOR PARENTS WHO HAVE TODDLERS NOT NEWBORNS.

  17. Mommy to be! on August 1st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    i LOVE LOVE LOVE this travel system. We can’t wait to purchase it..we tested it out in the store and the stroller seems prefect! The carseat however does have the buckle that you have to hold together and buckle in. Personally that is the only thing i would want to change. The colors are wonderful, not too bright.

  18. OfficerMom on August 1st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I just bought this stroller, and my baby isn’t due till the end of September, that’s why only 4 stars instead of 5. I have it assembled and I’ve pushed it around my house, and it’s great so far. I bought the stroller because it was the only 3 wheeled travel system I could find (at least in my price range). I prefer the jogging strollers because they are so much easier to push one handed and through gravel, dirt trails, and other such terrain. Hopefully I will not be disappointed, but so far I’m super happy about the purchase. I love the colors too! Plus it’s very easy to find and order extra car seat bases, which was a must for me.

  19. Proud Father on August 5th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    This travel system rocks, the only thing wrong with it is the MP3 speakerss are kinda weak but who cares, no problems on road, dirt, gravel and grass, smooth ride, i see some bad reviews on it, i feel like saying ur crazy, and it does block the sun for those people who say it doesn’t…

  20. Jay the first time Dad on August 9th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    My child is still not born but I hooked up a Very Popular brand Music device and if you move it even just barely sound becomes disrupted that makes me upset, and if the player was not moved speakers sound horrible and distorted could you imagine actually jogging and to your surprise your music cuts in and out! And the bottom line I’m not sure i would recommend to friend but since i wasn’t given the option and I’m sure someone will like this stroller I’m gonna say yes

  21. LJohnson2720 on August 10th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I put it together by myself

  22. stubri on August 10th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    My husband and I were looking for a travel system in the store when we came across this jogger. We took it around the store a couple times and it drove smoothly. My favorite thing about the car seat is the head positioner. It was small and cushy enough to support a newborn head. The rest of the travel system head supports seemed too wide and flat.
    The back rest of the stroller is adjustable and the sun shades provide maximum coverage, especially when the car seat is in the stroller. The two shades come together to completely cover your baby. And there is a peep hole to see them as well.
    Two of the perks are the adjustable handle for the stroller. Taller or shorter, it adjusts for your height. AND, it has a ipod dock with speakers in the tray at the top. Not sure how well that feature works, haven’t tried it yet. But it’s a neat idea. Folding the stroller down is pretty easy also.

  23. Mom of 3 on August 11th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I loved this stroller! With our first 2 kids, we used other travel systems and I was not pleased at all. One broke within 4 months of use and they were just really bulky! This stroller is very easy to maneuver with one hand, folds easily and I love that I can go running with my little guy at 6 months with this one!

  24. KarenLee on August 13th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I think this stroller is amazing! I love the colors and the construction is perfect. Some people might think it’s heavy but having purchased a lighter stroller (not cheap though)for my first and then having it fall apart while my baby was in it, I’m looking for durable. I also love that it has real tires not plastic. Even if you’re not using it for jogging I recommend this stroller.

  25. First-time mom & stroller buyer on August 14th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I was looking for a reasonably priced jogging stroller with a travel system that would be able to evolve from newborn – toddler. I like the maneuverability of three wheels for everyday use and wanted something sturdy and rugged enough to let me incorporate my baby into an exercise routine, from walking to running. It’s hard to find a jogger with a travel system though, especially one that is also affordable.

    This was the only jogging travel system we saw in the store and after test driving this and a few other traditional models, we definitely preferred the rubber bike tires to the rickety plastic four-wheel kind, both for a ease of steering and comfort. I’ve been just as happy with it out in the real world.

    It does take up much of the trunk space in our Volvo and 4Runner, but I can’t believe any other stroller of comparable function would fold up much smaller. I can easily fold and stow it, though you do have to hold it in just the right places to avoid getting pinched but again, I can’t imagine that is unique to this design.

    Before we purchased, I had read reviews about the front wheel having problems wobbling like a bad shopping cart. We didn’t notice this at first. After about 2 months of use, my husband noticed the tires getting a bit low. After fully inflating them, we did experience a wobbling front wheel. We locked it into place for the remainder of our outing and deflated the tire a bit when we got home which has solved the problem so far.

    Another reviewer here mentioned that he asked for a replacement when his tires became flat and then the company advised him to go to a bike shop when it happened again. The stroller comes with a tire pump like you would use on a bike tire. Just like a bike, it will be necessary to inflate the tires periodically. Also, like a bike tire, there is the possibility that something could puncture and deflate the tires in which case fix-a-flat or a bike tire repair kit should be sufficient. If someone weren’t able to do this at home, any bike shop should be able to repair the tires. As with any product, proper care and maintenance should extend the life and usefulness of this product.

    I’ve also found the sun shades to be excellent. When pulled all the way forward, the shade on the infant seat covers everything but my 3-month old’s ankles and toes (unless she’s pointed into the sun, obviously). When the infant seat is in the stroller, the dual shades cover her completely. The only thing I would improve is adding a piece of velcro to keep the peek-a-boo window open when both sun shades are closed. I often have to use both shades during a morning walk/run and would love to be able to keep an eye on the baby without having to lift up the little window every time.

    My only complaint is that we’ve had TWO incidents where the front strap on the infant seat that tightens the harness has become twisted or stuck where it passes through the car seat without any way for the user to get access to it. Twice we were almost trapped at home (once on the way to bring our baby to Urgent Care), but my husband was able to resolve the issue somehow.

    It happened one Friday morning while my husband was at work and I called Baby Trend customer service hoping they could walk me through some sort of tech support. The girl who answered my call was not at all helpful and finally said that my only option was to drive the car seat 30 miles to their repair center. I had to explain that I couldn’t do that since I was unable to transport my infant in the car without the seat, and as they weren’t open on weekends we were essentially trapped with our baby at home until my husband could drive 30 miles in the opposite direction of his office on Monday morning.

    Other than that, we’ve been completely pleased with our purchase and get tons of interest in our "fancy" stroller whenever we go out.

  26. momy on August 18th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    Dosen’t fit in my car’s trunk- Dodge Neon

  27. lulu on August 20th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I love everything about but does the back of the stroller go flat so the baby ca sleep?????

  28. New Mommy on August 20th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    A lot of these reviews are very true! This is a great buy and a decent price! I was worried because some of the other reviews I read said the seat does not recline for the child to sleep but when I went to check it out I figured out it DOES recline, there is a strap in the back you can losen or tighten! There are many things I love about this travel system and I think it is a great buy!!

  29. mom of 3 on August 23rd, 2010 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller combo! It was very easy to put together and not that much bigger than a standard stroller. This is for our 3rd child and we decided to go with jogger format this time around and we’re glad we did.

    Pros –
    The adjustable handle is great and even great for dad who is 6’5" to push with comfort.

    Easy to push and break down.

    The baby carrier has a great handle – triangle shaped and much easier to carry than the standard "straight bar"

    Easy to access basket underneath

    Easy to adjust the seat back and recline.

    Cons:
    A bit heavier than a standard stroller

  30. smege on August 24th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    When I first got this stroller a year and a half ago, I got it because there were very few budget travel systems with jogging strollers, and even fewer with a free front wheel. So for that purpose it was great. Using it while my little guy was in his car seat was also nice. But it was a pain in the butt to put together. The front wheel has always wobbled and we have never been able to figure out why. It is huge and bulky and doesn’t really fit into the car and when it is folded the storage basket drags on the ground so the nylon gets all torn up. It is also completely rusted out, the pump doesn’t seem to work at all and the parent console doesn’t stay on. Overall, I would not recommend this stroller. I loved my Jeep jogging stroller so much more. Now, I just wish I had spent the money on a higher end travel system, like the Phil & Teds, or the BOB.

  31. Karen on August 27th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I called customer service because when I tried to jog with the stroller it shook so bad, I had to walk. An actual human answered the phone and told me that you have to lock the front wheel for jogging. There is a little red "lever" to push and it locks the wheel in place, easy peasy.

    We have enjoyed the travel system. It is heavy, but they’re all heavey. The stoller, when folded, isn’t that much bigger than other strollers. I compared in store before purchasing. The extra base we purchased was much nicer than the one that came with the system. It’s easy to strap little one in, easy to adjust the straps that go over the shoulder. I haven’t had to take the cushioning out to wash yet, knock on wood, so I don’t know how easy it is to clean.

    I would buy it again for sure.

  32. Nikkiboys mom on August 28th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I tested the stroller on my 7yr old niece to see if it would hold up. it handled great i was impressed. I thought it would have been hard to turn do to her weight or even push with one hand but i was wrong it was a breeze.

  33. [*]man on September 1st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    don’t buy this thing.

  34. SGuardado on September 2nd, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I havent had the chance to use this yet because our daughter isn’t here yet. This was my only choice which cost about $20 more than another model I wanted by Baby Trend. I’ve tried the floor model at the store and it seems to ride smoothly. I can’t wait to use the stroller when I start running again!!

  35. FunMom on September 4th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I just got this product and am so happy with it. I love the color and the price. I read a couple of reviews that say they bought this product 1 or more years ago. They must be confussed? I checked at the store and this product just came out a couple of months ago. Anyway, I made my purchase and I have nothing but praise for this product. Love the adjustable handle, multiple cup holders, etc, etc, etc. It has a nice ride and is simple to fold and put in my car. Great products Babies R Us.

  36. Active mommy on September 7th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I just joined baby bootcamp and have decided to get back into shape. I really wanted to get a jogging stroller to make running easier and more comfortable, but since my baby is barely 4 months old, I wasnt finding one that was appropriate for him. Then I found this one. I LOVED IT. The concept was fantastic! I traded in my old travel system and got 25% off this jogging travel system. I put it together myself (very easy, just read the instructions). We used it all weekend to run errands and I loved that it folded up and fit into my trunk, and maneuvered through store aisles easily.

    Today, however, was my first day jogging with it. IMPOSSIBLE. The front wheel shakes horribly bad- EVEN WHEN LOCKED. All the pins are in place, the tires are aired up, etc, but the front wheel just shakes. The locking pin seems to be too small for the area that it locks into so the give is what makes it wobble.

    I took it back to the store, and now I have to find not only another jogging stroller, but another regular stroller and carseat as well since I traded in my old travel system to get this one!

    I am very disappointed. I wanted to like this stroller, but the mis-sized locking pin that makes the stroller shake so bad makes it impossible to be used as a jogging stroller!

    ALSO- I might note that like some other reviewers, I disliked the material that the carseat was made out of. It made my baby sweat really bad. It just doesn’t breathe well. Overall- great concept, but poor execution.

  37. New Mom on September 12th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I bought this travel system because I loved the look of it, and testing it out in the store it seemed durable. Once I got it home and actually tried to use it, I hated it. The handle is really wobbly and loose so you have to watch how you manuever with the stroller because it will crack and break if youre not careful. I already broke one stroller and my son is only seven months old! The front wheel wobbles constantly and I have to keep it locked at all times because if its unlocked its horrible to push and actually jams up. The thing is incredibly bulky and takes up the entire back of my SUV. The nylon basket also drags on the ground when it is folded up. Save your money and patience and buy a different travel system!

  38. Jonah's mama on September 17th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I bought this combo when my son was born i used the stroller and car seat together for the first 3 months and i just recently started using just the stroller to go on trips. I LOVE IT!!! He loves riding in it.

  39. k on September 19th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I purchased this to use for my 3rd daughter. I had a Baby Trend jogger for my 2nd child and loved it. We are having her on Wed so my husband went to install the seat today and it was hard to install. Then we attempted to put the stroller in my Grand Prix 2002 and it will not fit. I can’t even close tghe trunk. The other baby trend jogger I had fit in my trunk with room to spare. Even with the fold down handle it will not go in. We discovered the basket folds out when folded where the other one the basket folded in. SO overall it is a similar stroller however folded down I it is longer in length. Unless you have a large SUV this stroller is useless. So now I have to go back to the store and find a replacement set in under 2 days. Not what I was expecting to spend my time on doing. Thankfully we discovered this prior to using the carseat to bring her home.

  41. Audrie's mom on September 25th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    […] It’s perfect and just as I expected. The flex loc seat is lighter weight than most flex loc seats, but accommodates a bigger baby which is awesome. I was sure this thing would be HEAVY but it’s not as heavy as the one we played with at Target. Only disappointment.. this particular seat doesn’t have the easy adjustable straps. You have to thread them whereas older models of flex loc have the crank on the back to move the straps up and down. I thought that was a downgrade, but that could explain why this one weighs less than most. Overall, love it. A lot of the reviews on here are way off in my opinion. READ THE MANUAL and it will solve a lot of their problems.

  42. Nellieou on September 29th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is wonderful if you’re looking for a nice jogging stroller for a cheaper price. I use it everyday and have no compaints whatsoever, which is saying a lot since I’m a very picky person. When I was a nanny before I had my baby, I used the Jeep brand jogging stroller which is more expensive and it was horrible compared to this stroller. The front wheel always turned sideways which made it hard to straghten back up to push, the wheels squeaked horribly, the storage basket underneath wasn’t as roomy and was more of a net, and it was really heavy to pick up.

    I’m honestly not sure why the Babytrend stroller and car seat got such average reviews on here except that maybe some of you are expecting a thousand dollar product for less than $200?? I’ve used a lot of strollers in this same price range and nothing comes CLOSE to this. All the other jogging stroller systems are far more in price, and they might be more compact when closed but I’m not sure what else you would want. Some of you complain about the front wheel wobbling a little bit when you jog and all it takes is a tightening of the wheel a little bit. It’s not a defect, it’s called upkeep. You do the same with a bicycle when you put it together. Make sure everything is tight!

    It’s stylish, comfortable for my son, it’s well built, provides a smooth ride, very easy to maneuver with just one hand when need be, easily compresses to put into the back of our SUV, car seat just snaps right into place and comes out easily. I like the window I can look into when the covers are over the carseat and stroller and I love the big storage compartment in the bottom and the cup holders as well as the extra cmpartment in between the cupholders for my wallet and phone. I get compliments all the time from people thinking I spent hundreds more on this stroller system than I did. I go walking and jogging with other moms, many of whom complain about their much pricier systems. Is anyone ever happy? 🙂

    I use this stroller every single day on walks on gravel paths with my son and it’s awesome offroad wheels have no problems on the gravel or dirt. We love to go on long walks and hikes on paths through the valley here in Northern California so this works well. I’ve also used it several times in the airport as well as to go shopping. I’ll admit it is sometimes a bit big to go shopping with and doesn’t fit well into the trunk of a car unless you have a hatchback or an SUV, but it’s a wonderful stroller and I’m definitely holding onto it for the next child!

  43. mommy brady on October 2nd, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I chose this stroller for a few features. One, the fact you can adjust the handles, I am very tall. Two, it rides very smooth (we call it the Cadillac of stroller rides) and looks nice. So overall its a good stroller. On the negative, there is one most annoying, frustrating, and angering feature. The carseat part buckle. Its the worst design of any stroller I’ve ever owned or even seen (and I have three boys and have had many strollers). The way you have to match up the two sides of the buckle like a puzzle peice then try to hold it together in just the perfect way while you try to click it into the base buckle and most of the time…the puzzle part doesn’t stay just so and you have to start all over! Its extreamly frustrating. Drives my husband nutz! Why they chose this type of buckle is beyond me with so many other user friendly safe buckle methoods out there! When you have a screaming infant you are trying to get into the carseat and you are pushing on them trying to get this darn puzzle peice together and magically hold it together while they are squirming around is not fun!
    Another small complaint is that the front wheel starts wobbling a lot and you have to stop to get it to stop bumping before you can start running or even walking again. Its like its bouncing all over like a pick-up truck with nothing in the bed. My baby isn’t a light baby either. Also the little window that it has to peek at your baby won’t stay open so its kinda pointless. So I got a piece of velcro and put it on the back of the window flap and the canopy so it will stay open.
    Other then that it is a nice stroller and I like the way it looks and rides overall, its easy to fold, a bit heavy but what full size stroller isn’t, it has great storage on top for cups and a middle compartment for keys/phones and what not and good size storage below.

    Well, loved the car seat… still do, BUT first doc visit and we tried to put the stroller in to the trunk and it would NOT fit. It does not fold up well at all. Long story short… it took up the entire front seat just to fit in the vehicle. NOT a good item for that simple reason. What a shame!

    This was my very first stroller I ever bought for my son. Looked good at the store got it home and three months later the infant car seat handle started to get stuck then a few months later the stroller started to have problems folding, then both the stroller and car seat broke. I now do research on all baby products I buy.

    If you’re looking for a jogging stroller, this is a great product for you. I agree the main drawback is that it does not fit into the trunk of a mid-sized sedan. If we need to take it somewhere we just take off the two larger wheels and then it will fit (the wheels easily snap on and off so it’s not a huge deal). The stroller itself is a very smooth ride. It’s also durable – we take it on hiking trails and it rides over branches, dirt, and rocks. I love that the front wheel can lock and unlock, and we’ve never had a problem with it being loose. The handle on the carrier is also great; the triangle shape makes it easy to hold at any angle versus the vertical bars of other carriers. Finally, even though it’s large it has a relatively small turning radius, so it’s easy to maneuver. If you want to jog with your baby, I’d highly recommend this stroller and then getting a snap-n-go for trips where you need the stroller to easily fit in the car. If you aren’t as interested in running with the stroller, I’d go with something smaller.

    My son is very small for his age, so the car seat has worked well. He’s 11 months now and still using it. However, the jogger is not as good. Brand new it went through snow and sand, no problem. One of the tires falls off. My husband had to borrow a friends welder to make it work well, and that only lasted a few months. The entire thing is difficult to push, even in the mall.

    I actually have the previous model (bought this year but has slightly different color cover & no MP3 speakers)

    Pro:

    Looks great!
    Car seat base is easy to install w/ LATCH system
    Car seat easily snaps into base system
    Handle is unique & easy for almost everyone to carry
    Easy to push stroller, even on rough terrain
    Good size basket
    Love the cell phone holder & 2 cup holders for parents :O)

    Cons:

    Car seat

    Very uncomfortable for my little boy; not much cushion, piping hits him in the middle of his head (has given him piping face on multiple occasions), the buckle between legs does not extend as baby grows & latches for legs must be put in together in order to latch correctly. Unfortunately, a little man w/ chubby legs & no adjustment in buckle length makes is VERY difficult to latch him in w/o loosening all the straps each & every time. It has taken up to 2 minutes of struggling (& cursing), trying to get both latches in at exactly the same instant.

    After having to loosen the straps almost every time we go anywhere, I regularly end up having 2 different lengths over his shoulders which makes me have to take the seat out & rethread the entire seat to fix.

    Stroller:

    After just 5 uses, the metal frame has worn through fabric towards base of stroller. I’m super careful about handling the stroller & am shocked at how cheap the fabric is & how fast it shredded.

    Stroller BARELY fits into the very large trunk of my Honda Accord. I can usually pack a ton of stuff into the trunk but can only put 2 very small bags in when the stroller is in there.

    What you are reading on other’s comments about the front wheel wobbling.. true, and then some! The first time I tried to run with it it shook so bad I actually feared I had given my month old baby shaken baby syndrome. IT WAS THAT BAD. The only way for it not to wobble is to lock the front wheel, which then defeats the purpose of having the rotating wheel. The lock mechanism on the strap is terrible. The handle is cumbersome in that you have to push 2 buttons to adjust the handle. The carrier is big, it’s bulky, it’s heavy. A very good family friend bought this for us as a gift, and I feel terrible that she spent so much money on something that is on the curb waiting for the trash collector tomorrow.

    We just got this travel system on Friday and spent the weekend trying it out. It was extremely easy to assemble and all the features work great, except for the speakers, which seem to have a loose wire. The stroller is very stable and great for uneven terrain. The car seat is easy to install and is very comfortable to carry around. Overall, we are extremely happy with the travel system. The stroller is a little bulky for the trunk of our Nissan Versa, but it does fit. If we take the rear wheels off the stroller (which is very easy to do) the stroller fits much better and there is even room in the trunk for luggage, groceries, etc.

    DO NOT BUY THIS STOLLER!! THE FRONT WHEEL DOES NOT STAY ON!! THE WHEEL FALLS OFF AND WILL NOT GO BACK ON! YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MOVE FROM SIDE TO SIDE… THE WHEEL JIGGLES IF YOU TRY. I CALLED THIS COMPANY AND THEY WONT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE… ALL FIRST TIME MOMS DO NOT REGISTER FOR THIS OR BUY THIS STROLLER. IT DOES NOT WORK

  54. NDRsquared on October 28th, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I haven’t used the stroller yet (other than just pushing it around), our baby is due next month. We did however, try the MP3 player out. The speakers cut the music in & out, I called Customer service & they sent us another set […], and this 2nd set did the same exact thing (tried it on two completely different MP3 players-a good one & a cheap one). Just called Customer service again & they are going to send yet another set-I’ll let you know if these work.One good point is that when you call customer service I got a person right away-no prompts & no wait times.

    I bought this stroller/car seat combo in June 2009 with a 20% off coupon at BRU. So it was a great deal pricewise. I have been using it since my son was born in August 2009. It has been great for strolling him around in a neighborhood with no sidewalks when he was in the carrier and since he’s gotten bigger, I jog with it on paved surfaces. I did have some problems with the front wheel wobbling which caused major shaking when unlocked and minor jiggling when locked while jogging. There is a warning sticker on the stroller that says you should always lock the wheel to jog for safety anyway, so I thought the wobbling was normal until I read another review where they got the problem fixed. So, then I contacted Baby Trend about the problem and they helped me take it apart at home to try to fix it, then they sent me a part to try to fix it at home, and when that did not work, they sent me a box and a FedEx shipping label to send it into them. They fixed it and returned it within a week. Now it works great with NO wobbling at all, even jogging with the wheel unlocked. […] I do have difficulty fitting it in the small trunk of my Camry Hybrid, but it does JUST fit and I would bet that most large strollers have this problem. A minor complaint is that I wish the upper drink holders were a little bigger, they fit a soda can, but nothing else, so I have to throw my water bottle in the storage space under the seat which is not a big deal.Overall, I am very pleased with this product. It is not built as sturdy as a BOB, but it costs MUCH less too, so you get what you pay for. For all intents and purposes, it works well for me for walking and jogging almost every day. And the infant carrier was great, too. I got lots of compliments from my friends in the rehab industry about the triangular ergonomic carrying handle.

    Loved this thing. I don’t know why others don’t. It all fits, universal, easy to set up,….didn’t break or anything
