NOT a true terrain stroller

After my call with a supervisor from Graco I came to find out, the video that Amazon has up is NOT the same stroller that’s being sold in the US, it’s the european model. The Trekko came out in Europe first and there are some key features they did not want to included on the US model for whatever reasons.This stroller doesn’t even have shocks or suspensions so I emailed & asked how can this be a TRUE all terrain stroller. My reply was “No, The wheels do not have shock absorbers. Please lock wheels”. But even when they were lock you could still feel them wobble.-CONS-For NOT being a jogging stroller (in manuel-reads-not to be used for jogging) it’s VERY bulky.The material doesn’t seem like the breathable kind , which means your child will be uncomfortable.Yes, it’s heavy but not much of a difference compare to Jeep’s line of strollers.The mechanism to drop the basket up & down is very poorly made.Front wheel wobbles even when in lock mode, it’s fine when your walking at a slow pace but brisk walking is a no go.There is this huge gap between the push handle and stroller itself.Weak amount of cushion and seatback is hard……………….On the bumper bar there is the metal piece with a bolt/screw that just sticks out. NOT safe, if you go over a bump your child could hit it or if they like to rest thier feet on the bar they will surely scrap the skin off. On the video (Europe model) it shows this padded flap piece to cover it up. Graco claims its expose for the carseat, well if you order the travel system version I can see how ideal that will be but if your child will not be in a carseat I don’t see how that can be safe. Yes some can throw tape over it or what not but the point is, you shouldn’t have to.AND you all already know the con about no kids tray or cup holder.-PROS-Sleek designThe seat sits upright and is higher up then most strollers which is one of the reasons I wanted it. Going over gravel or a walk after the rain meant debris wouldn’t be spit up from the wheels into my child’s face.Lever for the seat recline is nice-no draw strings unlike othersI like that the canopy has a huge mesh peek a boo window just right, so when you have the shade all the way down, your child can still see the world without feeling like he/she is in the dark.-Overall-I wish the cons didn’t outweight the pros and that the stroller would of had an adjustable footrest along with at least a snack tray for the little ones.If the stroller was maybe under $90 I would of did some tweaking to it and kept it.

We Love It

I got this stroller after doing a ton of research. It was the right price for me. I am a casual jogger and didn’t need a BOB for what the BOBs cost. My 2yo daughter loves it. We have multiple strollers and she always requests this one. The canopy is great. It shields from sun and wind and there is a eek a boo window that I love. The wheels are extremely sturdy. They go smoothly over gravel and large rocks. I live in a desert climate so the surfaces are not smooth, but this stroller feels like they are. It fits into the trunk of my Toyota Corolla. You can easily fix the wheel in front to go straight only or to swivel. It’s just a push of a button. The basket is huge.On my second or third outing, while I was actually jogging, the front wheel began to wobble. No problem, I just detached it, turned it around, and re-attached it. No more wobbling after that. Now any time it happens, about once every five times, I take the front wheel off, turn it 180 degrees, then reattach it and that stops the wobbling for good. I’m really impressed because I read SO many complaints about jogging strollers wobbling, and I thought it was a curse of any jogging stroller under $300.I love that I can use this again with the next baby because it accepts Graco car seats.Problem one, this monster is quite heavy. But that is typical for joggers. I don’t have any trouble with it because it’s extremely easy to fold and unfold, but it is not practical for light use. That is why I am going to replace my now-broken umbrella stroller with a Graco Liteway. My daughter and I use our strollers an awful lot so I need the two. This is not the stroller I choose to keep in my trunk for trips to the mall, or for the walk to daycare. It is just too bulky. I prefer to keep it in the garage and use it for long walks with the dog in our neighborhood and the occasional jog. It’s wonderful for that. I can steer it with one hand while I play with my phone.Another problem is that if I put too much stuff in the basket, it detaches. No problem, it’s easy to fix. But I didn’t want to carry my purse. My purse was really heavy that day. It had my work laptop in it. So I will be purchasing a stroller hook for that.Also I’m bummed that it doesn’t have a snack tray for my daughter. I bought a detachable cup holder for her, but I don’t really like it because it doesn’t stay in place. The only thing I would change about this stroller is that I would add a snack tray.So for the price I give this 5 stars. I paid about 145 for it. Had I spent 200 or more I would have given it four stars for not having a snack tray for baby. Other than that it’s pretty great for jogging and/or long walks.

Good design- needs some improvement

This stroller has lots of pros and cons. Like others have said it is heavy and takes up a lot of room in your trunk space- not a stroller you could just pop out on a whim and run into a store with. I guess I will go ahead and say the cons- being able to attach the car seat to it is not as easy as they make it look in the video, you could really hurt your fingers. You have to strap your baby in right away as the bar does not do much to keep the child in place. There are no drink holders- probably due to it’s ability to fold up and the basket that holds things isn’t very sturdy. It is awesome to look at! The best things about this stroller are that it is sturdy and smooth and you can adjust the front wheel to pivot on rough terrain or stay stable. Easy to fold and unfold. The best feature is the sun visor – it can move just about any way that you need to in order to keep the sun out of baby’s eyes. It also has a “sunroof” of mesh so the baby can look through this if the canopy is in front of them. This is a versitile stroller that can be used with newborns up till the baby is around two. That is also nice.

Too big

I thought I was purchasing a stroller that would fold up nicely in the back of my car, but even folded up it is too big. The stroller takes up the back of my SUV and leaves barely any room for anything else. Wish I had bought some thing smaller. Definitely cannot pack the stroller if I’m planning to get groceries.

Awful. Do not buy this stroller.

I was on bedrest at the hospital for most of my pregnancy so I bought a lot of my baby gear online without being able to see the items in person. I wanted to love this stroller but when I finally got home after delivering the baby, I found that this stroller was HUGE! It was impossible to load this in and out of the trunk while recovering from a c-section. Not to mention, it barely fit in my trunk. I have both a hatch-back sedan and and SUV. It barely fit in the hatchback and took up most of the trunk space in my SUV. I saw a lot of the same issues that other reviewers complained about. The wheels wobble when walking at a brisk speed, the storage basket falls of its supports, and there is very little shock absorbance at all when going over gravel or thick grass. Purchasing this stroller was a big mistake. Since it was too late to return it, I gave it away (I posted it on Craigslist for weeks for $80 and nobody ever responded) and bought a Britax B-Agile travel system. Now I’m happy!

Nice but too bulky

We purchased a Signature Series by Graco Trekko 3-Wheel Travel System Stroller with SnugRide 30 – Jive from Babies R Us for our first child about a year ago for our first child. The combo looked nice and sleek. Both me and my husband are tall, so we liked that the handle is adjustable and we always use it at the highest setting. We thought that it was a jogging stroller, but it only looks like one, so do not purchase it if you intend to seriously jog with it. We discovered that the stroller does not fit in the trunk of my Cadillac CTS, so it is used mainly when we go to the beach and drive my husband’s truck. Thankfully a friend lent us a Graco stroller base that I used to put the car seat into at the beginning and now I have a Graco umbrella stroller. On the positive side, I like the broad sun shade that flips to the front and the roomy bottom basket. The material is easy to clean. In general, it is pretty but not as functional as it should be.

Graco Has Better Strollers

I bought this mainly because the pattern matches the Graco car seat I bought. When used as a travel system with the car seat attached to the stroller I wanted them to match.I made sure to read the reviews before buying so there were some things I expected/did not expect.This is not a jogging stroller, it looks like one but it isn’t. Doesn’t bother me, I do not jog.This is not an all-terrain stroller. Doesn’t bother me, I like to stick to malls and sidewalks and roads anyways.There is no snack tray or cup holder.It does not fold up small at all, I cannot fit this in my car unless I want to squish the baby in the backseat with it.All that aside, I really like this stroller. The colors are nice, it gives off the appearance that I jog, it has a nice sized basket, I really like the handle, folding it up is easy, and my car seat fits perfectly.

Great stroller, smooth ride, but lacks accessories.

We love this stroller!Very smooth ride, light weight (compared to a couple different graco strollers we have owned). Nice deep under stroller basket that doesn’t collapse when it’s lowered. Easily lockable wheels, movable canopy, nice turning radius.My only complaint is the lack of parent storage compartment/cup-holders, as well as child cup-holder/tray.

IN LOVE WITH THIS STROLLER

I had a different Graco stroller (the 4 wheeled kind) for the first year with our son, and I always hated how the wheels sounded when we were taking walks on the boardwalk that is near by, and even down our street… they just never seemed sturdy. Well, just after our son’s first birthday the front wheel finally broke off. I decided for my next stroller I wanted a 3 wheel stroller that would be for any terrain. I do not jog, so it is not used for those purposes, just wanted something I could take anywhere without worrying about the wheels. This stroller has been WONDERFUL! I am so upset that I didn’t just get one like this from the beginning.Best features:Easy set up; only took me a few minutes to do, the wheels just had to be put on.Easy to fold up. It is trully as easy as they say and show in the video. It can be done with one hand.Comfortable seat.Huge storage bin underneath. I have never seen one that would fit so much stuff.Easy to maneuver back and forth and around objects.Sturdy wheels.Adjustable handlebar.Seat reclines in several different positions for child to sit up or lay all the way back, and it’s easy to do!Only down falls:No snack tray for baby or cupholders for parents. BUT, I used the brica cupholder on the handlebar for my drink and the brica snack pod on the side for baby to reach his cup and snacks, and they work great, so it’s really not an issue.The stroller is very LARGE!!! Which is great, however it’s hard to fit in some vehicles. We have an SUV with a huge trunk, so for me it’s not a problem, but when we put it in my in-laws vehicle we had to remove the wheels in order for it to fit. But it was very easy to get them off, and then back on. DIdn’t cause much of a problem at all for us.So you can see the positives out do the negatives in a big way… I would highly recommend this stroller to anyone!!!! It’s a great buy!

Great substitute for the BOB

Opted for this over a BOB due to cost and I love it! A lot lighter weight than the bob and easy to put up and down in my car. (SUV) Love that the handle adjust for different height people. We have taken it hiking up a ski hill with no problems! A tad big and bulky when folded but we still love it. Our only complant is the basket sometimes falls but that could be user error

Great stroller! Great Price!

This stroller is a great deal for the price! I take it on cobblestone paved road and trails all the time. I bought the "Jolly Jumper Stroller Caddy" for cup holder for myself. It’s very easy it put up and take down. It’s dose take up quite a bit of room in the trunk of the car though.

Total nightmare

I bought this because we go to the park with our dog a lot. Well it was absolutely awful. We have a Rav 4 and with the dog in the back it was hard to make room for this stroller. Plus it was heavy. Once we got to the park the stroller almost rooled over twice going over cracks in the pavement. Hurt my wrist trying to keep it from rolling over and tossing my baby and car seat on to the ground. I was so glad Amazon let me try it for a full refund.Would not recommend it to anyone.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

This is a great jogging stroller. I love everything about it. It fits in the back of my Kia Amanti. It’s so light and easy to maneuver. I love that it fits the Graco car seats. The only think I do not like is the that there isn’t any cup holders but I just purchased those for $5 and they work great. Lots of room, I cannot say enough about it. It’s beats my jogging stroller

Very easy set up, but very big and not very sturdy with a car seat on it

I love this stroller. It was very easy to set up out of the box. My only complaint is that it is huge when it is folded down. Due to the wheels I am not able to fit it in the back of my car unless I take the wheels off. It is an easy process to take the wheels off, you just push a button and they pop off, bu it can just be a inconvienience sometimes. My car seat fit perfectly on this stroller and it seems to move easily. It is not very sturdy so I would NEVER leave a baby alone in it.
