I bought this stroller for my live-in grandchildren about 4 years ago when they were available only online. It still easily glides through the surfaces and has held the wear, tear and almost abuse inflicted by 2 happy toddlers and their travels with their grandparents. No problems folding it. We don’t remove any of the seats (you just have to position the footrests on the right angle); and did not have problems fitting it in the small trunk of my daughter’s smaller VW Jetta when properly folded. Yes, it is big, and yes, the seat backs are a little short and yes, is a little heavy. But if you research the double tandem specifications of the other brands around, there is no significant difference on the dimensions and weight. And, in some cases, the Contour is even a little lighter than other competitive brands. The way I saw it, If I purchased a double tandem with so many features, I had to expect it to be on the larger and heavier side. Plus with the looks, the features and the price the Kolcraft Contour is still a winner in my household! Now my grandchildren are 5 and almost 4, and although the seat backs are a little short for them, we still use it without problems when we know we will be doing a lot of walking! They love it, and so do we! I just wish that Kolcraft come-up with a design to accommodate the size of older toddlers who still need a comfortable and cool ride! I will purchase it in a heartbeat!
