I have just purchased this item and have to say that i am a little disappointed. After reading other reviews, saying that it will fit in a small car, I had tremendous difficulty fitting it in to my 52 plate ford fiesta. It was quite heavy and the only way i could have got it into the boot would be by taking off the wheels each time, which in itself is not easy as you have to pinch the plastic ends together to allow the wheel to come off. I finally managed to fit it behind the front seats with both front seats pulled as far forward as possible which will make driving difficult for me and impossible for my husband who is over 6 ft tall and needs the seat in its furthest back position.
The buggy doesn't collapse fully if the hoods are in place as they just get in the way, so once again, they have to be taken off each time. I also found that the front wheel locks are very stiff. I haven't actually used the buggy yet so can't comment on the effectiveness of these and can't imagine that i would be wanting to lock the front swivel wheels.
On reading the user guide it says the item is intended for babies from 6 months upwards. There was no mention of this in the advertising description. I will be using the buggy for 2 babies, currently aged 4 months and 9 months. Only very occasional use so not too bothered about the lower age limit, but it might be an important factor for some people.
On the plus side the buggy was inexpensive and looks good. It will serve my needs as a grandmother and occasional user, but if it was for everyday use i would defintely make further investigation before purchasing.
