We did our research on prams. We read reviews. We read which? and we went up to Kiddicare in Peterborough to test drive. I was set on a Bill&Ted until we got there and whilst testing buggies (travel systems) we fell in love with the Quinny (4 at the time). It was only as we were about buy it that we actually tried the Buzz 3. Wow, it cornered like it was on rails - perfect for our badly designed Tesco's (with it's pillars in the middle of the milk aisle). We've now had it 3 years and it... (read more)

It is a waste of time the weels stick making it move in the wrong direction. The straps are not long enough and whenever my son sleeps in it he wakes up sweating because of the stupid materail and the seat is not big enough and the brakes have a mind of there own it was good at first but after the first few months it just broke i suppose starting to squeak i would not recomend it to anyone it is a waste of money and time. If i new how bad it was i would have definitely NOT have bought it (read more)

PLEASE don't buy this pushchair! Dorel/Quinny rely on first time parents who don't look into the awful reviews this system has!
Endless problems with it- chassis tends to bend to the side, seats are difficult to get on and off, really heavy to push, springy chassis, veers to one side all the time, pushchair seat is strange shape so when reclined fully the childs feet are up in the air!!

QUINNY BUZZ 4 - Parents of other half bought this for us as a gift for our first baby. They told us they had one for their youngest and they were a good make. I wasn't sold on it straight away as it was effectively a 3-wheeler (even though it has 4 wheel, to at the front at close together) and I don't trust 3 wheelers. This is AWFUL! Too expensive for a pram that it not easy to use at all! If you need to get on public transport then forget it, this is way too big. Also if you need to flatten... (read more)

Quinny Buzz 4. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. Why? OK - let's cut to the chase. You buy a pram in order to transport your child from A-B. A key feature must therefore be it's ability to move from A-B. Buy a Quinny Buzz 4 and you will be sorely disappointed. Why? PUNCTURES. Plural. Double plural. We have had this woeful piece of equipment for 6 months now, and I do not exagerate when I say that we are on our third set of puncture repair blisters (packs of 10 min.), second set of inner tubes - both...

I was bought the Quinny Buzz 3 pram just over a year ago along with the Dreami, the Maxi Cosi car seat and all the hidden extras that go with It. At first I absolutely loved it! The travel system was fantastic and everyone commented on how lovely it was. It is incredibly comfy and sturdy and it is so easy to manouver around shops etc. It folds up easily yet remains pretty bulky! I am now shopping for a new stroller as my son is just too heavy to push around in it. Not to mention my tyre... (read more)

Terrible, terrible buggy. The seat doesn't recline, it simply tips back, so the sleeping child's legs are in the air! Very uncomfortable. The wheels are so wide as well that its very difficult to get in and our of door ways. The whole thing bounces too, which might be soothing to a small baby but definitely not for an older baby trying to drink some juice! The whole thing is hateful, its really just a fashion statement and I think they are more about vanity than the child's comfort to be... (read more)

I love my Quinny Buzz. Had been very undecided because of the general bad reviews on it, so decided to go for a second hand to prevent from big money loss. I got a 2007 model, with a 8 mo. girl: the regular seat is just fine: she may be too tight at 18 months though, and the straps yes are short with winter clothes on, but these are easily solvable problems.
I fit it in my peugeot 107: yes the smallest car on earth! by leaving the seat on, street facing, wheels off: it stays nicely in front... (read more)

We recently bought the 2010 model for our 9 month old son. This is the third pushchair we have been through thanks to the other two being real disappointments. After reading some bad reveiws about the small seat unit and tight straps I was beginning to worry as our boy is very big for his age. (27lb and 82cm long)
Thankfully Quinny have sorted the problem by providing an XL seat unit and extra long straps which will definitely allow my son to use the pushchair for as long... (read more)

When I first bought the Quinny buzz 3 in 2009 I loved it, The car seat was easy to fit with the adaptors and the pram is so easy to put up with the flick of one flap with just one hand, and moderately easy to put back down (definately not with one hand though). The pram is easy to steer and light enough to get up curbs etc: As my daughter got bigger though I started to wish I had just bought a cheaper pram. The seat is not very deep, so my daughter could not hold herself up and practise... (read more)

I bought the quinny buzz pushchair/stroller in 2007, it was very fashionable and easy to manage, enjoyed every day I used it until my baby got bigger, I cannot use the pushchair, not deep enough and the strap isn't long enough.

Quinnys are cool, for sure. Nice design, nice accessories and the whole thing is easy to assemble and configure how you need it. The car seat is great - very simple to "plug and play", and the main seat is a nice design (especially the rear-facing option, which we loved). No problems so far and on that basis alone it would get top marks.
But you can subtract for the following day-to-day problems -
There's no real solution for a 2nd baby in the set up.

I bought the 200/2007 Quinny Buzz Jogger Stroller model plus dreami carrycot, car seat and shopping bag etc.
Mainly bought because of simply folding system and ease to re-asemble.
Car seat works great on chassis for poppin in and out of car.

Large hood is great on this older model keeping baby well shaded from all elements, i have not had t buy a parasol.

All the attachments are easily put on or off the chassis and the chassis folds with ease. Some people complain about having to take seat off to fold it down but... (read more)

I have used the Quinny Buzz Jogger Stoller 3 for over a year now. I bought the 2006/7 model as I think the seat looked much deeper. I really love the easy manouverability of this buggy and the 2 recline poisitions. you can use the 2 reclines facing the seat forward or back. I have had a replacement handle as the elastic hook broke which keeps the buggy from unfolding in transit and also the seat frame as the footrest didn't click into place - but the service from Dorrell has been...

I would not buy a quinny again, though I loved the way the car seat attached to the frame cos it made driving to places and getting around once there really easy. Also, it looks lovely but stupidly that was what encouraged me to get one...really and truly I feel they're not worth the money. I wouldn't bother getting the carrycot either cos you can use the pushchair attachment from birth. Overall this was a disappointing purchase for me. (read more)

We've been using the Quinny Buzz Jogger Stroller system for nearly 16 months now, and whilst initial impressions were good; time and use have taken its toll.
The initial assembly is easy and folding the pram is fairly simple; but its much more impressive when you're unfolding it again. The Buzz has an assistance gadget for this and quick tug opens it fully with no fuss.
Using the Maxi- Cosi car seat is simple with this frame, using the two plastic adapters; although they can get lost easily if... (read more)

I bought all pieces, the car seat, carrycot, bag, the lot etc. for some £500+ I find the pram to be heavy and takes up a lot of room in the boot of my car. The raincover is awkward for me to put on in a rush. To fold the pram down I had to lean with my full body weight to pull the cord that fastens the frame together. I found it impossible to take the car seat off the frame whilst my baby was in the car seat, I seem to need broad shoulders, strong thumbs and fingers and a third hand. I... (read more)

I love our Quinny buzz but I also think that it has some faults. Firstly I find it very easy to use. Some buggies and prams are impossible to fold and erect I found this one simple to use on both fronts. The car seat is so easy to use and fit in to the car and on to the frame for quick dashes when you don't want to disturb baby from their seat. I found the Pram (dreami - I think they call it) is great and doubles as a bed when I stay in my mums and saves having to bring a cot as well as a... (read more)

We just loved the look and functionality of the Quinny Buzz but after a few months of use became seriously concerned about the effectiveness of the brake mechanism. In short, we think it is far too easy for the user to not engage the brake pedal properly during the course of everyday use - meaning that the chair can sometimes roll-away when we think we have secured it. We have raised this with the manufacturer who deny the existence of a flaw. (read more)

We have had our Quiny Buzz Jogger Stroller (2008 model) for 3 months now and simply cannot fault it. We shopped around alot and I read a hundred and one reviews before taking the plunge and can honestly say it was well worth the money.

This buggy is a nightmare. It is so heavy and far too wide. so i cant wheel it into restaurants or buses without being completely embarrassed and it won't even fit through some people's normal sized front doors. But the worst thing about it is the straps are ridiculously short. I have not been able to strap my son in since he was 4 months old and he is of a normal size.

It pushes lovely and is very comfortable for my daughter. Lovely buggy but its not for everyone. Quite bulky to fit in a car boot cos you have to take the seat off first you have to put it somewhere so you can colaspe the frame then put the seat in on top of it.

This stroller is strictly good for its looks. Obviously the best looking stroller out there. Functionally it is very poor. The rear wheels are too wide for most turns esp in urban areas.
