Uppababy Vista Pushchair, Denny Red
6 months later still happy
We are very pleased with our uppababy vista & feel we definitely made the right choice for us. It's really solid, you don't realise how bad the pavements are until you push a buggy around London. It's easy to put up & down, option to have the cot & seat forward or backward facing is good for different stages of a babies development. The large basket at the bottom & built in sun shade are very useful. My only improvement would be I found it difficult to put the cot hood up & down in one movement.

Questionable build quality
Looks lovely, but there's a common problem of the right wheel not touching the floor, I'm guessing due to irregularities in the frame. Seems to be widely reported on baby forums. Ours had this, plus the cot mechanism was faulty from new so we couldn't remove the cot. Not a good start!
Worth thoroughly inspecting before you start using extensively. I gather uppababy support are fantastic, so fingers crossed the replacement will be ok.

I've been using mine for 2.5 years now and still think it is great. The pop out sunshade was envied a lot by other mums using parasols. The height is great and means that it is even possible to use it as a highchair when out and about. Easy to push and steer and still my buggy of choice for trips to the shops because the basket is huge.

We love this!
We have been using the Uppababy Vista for 5 months now - our baby has just outgrown the bassinet and we're moving on to the pushchair. It's great value that both bassinet and pushchair are included from the off.
The large shopping basket underneath is great, friends have commented that they wish their (other branded) prams had as much space. We store the raincover and our baby changing bag underneath all the time, and still have lots of space for shopping!
The bassinet has been fantastic - we used it for overnight sleeping a couple of times, it's lovely and cosy, and spacious (most babies would fit up to 5-6 months, unlike many other bassinets I've seen).
Our only initial reservation was how large/wide it is (especially as we live in London), but just always get on the back door of buses and it's fine!
It's a really smooth ride, too - great if you're planning to walk everywhere.

We went to JL fully intending to buy a buggy system of a different brand (they name their models after fruit...). This one blew all of them out of the water.
The build quality is superb, it's so easy to use and the amount of extras it comes with make it great value for money despite what you might initially think is a high price tag.
The vents on the pram and the UV shade are ingenious. The shopping basket is huge compared to some. Also, the raincover for the pram fits over a car seat. It is one of the few systems we found that comes with car seat adaptors. Our little girl used the pram as her cot for the first few weeks and seemed comfortable in it. We have been stopped in the street by prospective parents and grandparents asking about it and have sung its praises!

Fantastic pram and I have truly road tested mine across fields, forests and parklands. Especially great if you walk a lot with your baby/toddler, very durable, solid wheels which don’t get punctures. Folds down easily for transportation, not as lightweight as some other makes, but fabric frame and chassis very well built. Very manoeuvrable large wheels enable you to go up and down steps and travel over rougher paths easily. The seat is higher than most pushchairs, which is better for mum’s back and also enables a better view point for your child. The huge basket allows you to transport shopping easily with no need to balance bags on pram handles. This pram has been an excellent choice from birth to toddler. I am very pleased with this purchase, a reasonably priced pram with all accessories included.

Absolutely love it
This is a fabulous pram and push chair. It is light to turn and easy to push, really easy to click the attachments on to and is fantastic value for money as it comes with everything from insect nets to car seat adapters and a mattress suitable for overnight sleeping. It also has a sunshade which pulls out from under the hood of both the pram and push chair which is so much better than a parasol as you don't have to adjust it every time you change direction. The sun shade doubles up as a screen to prevent baby from being distracted if its nap time too. Now my baby has grown out of the pram I will have to start using a travel cot when I go away but I have been using just the pram which was so convenient.
We started using the push chair seat a couple of weeks ago and I'm really pleased with that too. It seems comfy judging by how often my daughter falls asleep in it and with the seat on I can make even more use of the huge basket. Also, one thing I noticed before buying it, the seat is considerably longer than most push chairs so I am expecting it to last a long time and the seat is higher than most push chairs so when facing forward can be pushed up to a table and used as a high chair when you are out and about.
I walk at least 2 miles every day and go to buggy fit classes and am so pleased with this purchase. I am also delighted with the help and guidance I had from the John Lewis store staff who really helped me to work through what I wanted from my buggy / pram.
