I have had the Priscilla Pattern, Spree Travel System for a little over a year now and I don't know what all the other reviews are talking about! I've NEVER had not ONE problem with either the car seat or stroller. The car seat is lightweight which is good!!! I love that you can clip it on stroller. I only wish the head support were more supporting. I did get a new car seat at 8 months due to feeling like, compared to the others with high wings on sides, that it was not the safest as she got bigger. As a starter for a newborn and with everything else you have to buy as a new parent, this is PERFECT for that. I recommend it.
