My parents bought this stroller system for us as a shower gift, we have been using it since November 2013 (now, May 2014). It has held up SO WELL. it has acquired some scratches on the wheels and frame, but it's all plastic so that's not really shocking. It can be kind of cumbersome in small spaces, such as clothing isles o bathroom stalls, but not too bad. The turn radius is much better than you would expect for it being so big. I have not used the stroller part of it yet, as my baby is only six months, but the car seat works great. It is pretty heavy with baby in it, I have to use two hands most of the time. The crotch buckle tends to be a little sticky at times, and hard to buckle/unbuckle. I also used this in flight with very short layovers where I had to throw everything together and run, and it was up to the challenge. All in all, I love this travel system. My tall husbands likes it, too, and says it isn't too low or in the way of his feet. Definitely recommend!
