My son is 2 and a half and we got this in jan 2010 in the mamas and papas sale. It has never been faulty in any way and I have loved everything about it. We live in a small house so I keep it locked to the front of the house all day, ie outside in all weathers and it hasnt rusted etc. I do a lot of dog walking and shopping and it copes with it all. I have a smart car, with a tiny tiny boot and I simply take the wheels off and slip the seat behind the drivers chair and the frame in the boot. Fits perfectly.
My only disappointment was with mamas and papas who didn't make it clear that it could be used with a maxi cosi seat so we bought their own model of car seat which was very heavy but on the plus side it lasted until my son was over one whilst at 9 months most of the maxi cosi users had to get a forward facing seat and could no longer take their child out of the car onto the buggy without waking them. A carry cot was said to be a must by the hospital who said new borns should be flat as much as possible and not in a car seat or next stage seat on the pram until 6 months. So I forked out for this. It was good for approx 2 months but think we could have used the car seat in the early months because he was in it for such short periods. We did use it on the occasional night away as his carry cot over night.
It does have quite a small seat which worried me at first but now at 2 and a half he is still very comfortable. I am looking to get a mountain buggy for long dog walks now as he gets older, but for the value for money I wouldn't change my decision given the chance again.
