I was really pleased with this pushchair. Apart from the usual punctures i have used this pushchair for two children over 5 years usage total. It is great for the car seat, carry cot and using as a real pushchair. My only problems so far is that the front wheel can tilt slightly to one side so it veers to the right a little, both my average sized babies outgrew the carrycot before six months so i had to use the car seat on the frame quite a lot (which they probably enjoyed more) and i keep trapping the brake cable in the frame when i unfold the pushchair. All in all, a superb pushchair which lasts a LONG time. The tyres also make it easy to bump up and down stairs (very common where i live). Was a real bargain, and i will probably be able to sell it quite easily too!
I too had a puncture the first time that I used the pushchair and took to a cycle store to fix. Five years down the line after using it for 2 children including using it with car seat and dreami and have to say that this pushchair is fantastic and sellable even after 5 years of solid use. Still in good nic. The other review just had bad luck. Most of my friends bought 2 or 3 more pushchairs prior to having their 2nd baby but I never needed to. It folds down flat, all wheels can be removed. Large enough to carry a 4-5 year old after a full day on the beach. Very pleased indeed
I bought my Maxi Taxi as I live in the countryside, I can't tell you how disappointed I am, I have had 23 punctures between all three wheels, I've tried inserting the plastic wraps, but then spend hours trying to get the tyres back on. I am still waiting for three new innertubes as one is now unrepairable.
I bought this pushchair after careful consideration. I wanted to be able to use it to walk across fields and country paths - not rough land with lots of thorns but not smooth tarmac either. This pushchair has been a real disappointment. The first time I went out I had 2 punctures. The next time I went out I got just one (and this was on smooth tarmec). The next time another two and so on. When I spoke to the shop who sold it to me, they advised me to buy some new tyres and line these (this is quite fiddly to do) as this had happened to lots of other people who have bought this pushchair. If you don't mind doing frequent puncture repairs, fiddly tyre lining and having to carry the pushchair and babe when the tyres are flat then this is the pushchair for you. If, on the other hand you have other things to do buy something else - as I have now had to do.
THIS BUGGY NOT ONLY LOOKS GOOD BUT IT IS A GOOD QUALITY ITEM! - Advantages: Actually quite easy to steer, lightweight, even with a 2 yr old in it!, bags of space for your child to sit. - Disadvantages: as with most buggies with tyres, PUNCTURES!! ( I'VE HAD 2 SO FAR), hood has no viewing window (not a major problem though), maybe quite big for some cars boot space
