Post subject: Graco Quattro Tour System - Anyone got any opinions?
Just starting to trawl through the forest of pushchairs etc that are on offer....there are so many. I want a travel system with the car seat etc and this one seems to have everything thrown in, but has anyone got one or used one?

Hi, I've just joined but I saw your question. I've got the Graco Quatro tour deluxe. It's a good buggy but here are my findings since using it.
Negatives, It's fairly heavy. If you have a car that has a lip at the boot then it's pretty heavy lifting it in and out. One of my back wheels fell off but it was easy enough to replace it. Think it had become damaged with me trying to get it in and out the car.
Positives, it's easy to manouvere and the travel system part works really well and is good for when baby is asleep, although as baby gets heavier so does car seat. It's really easy to get up and down.
I love mine. When it was out of action with wheel I bought a hauck speed sun. It was lighter and easier to get in the car but I really missed my Graco. It's a really solid buggy and I would recommend.
Hope this helps

I had the Gracco travel system and although the car seat is excellent, being able to lift in and out the car and clip into the pushchair, I found the pushchair to be extremely heavy and hard to manouver!
I really struggled to lift in and out the car, especially as i had a C section, for weeks after someone else had to push and lift it 4 me!!
In the end I decided to get a Quinny Buzz! This is so much lighter and much easier to steer round the shops etc! I do however, still use the carseat from the Gracco system!
hope this helps

Thanks for the tips - it is a minefield out there! I just want one that has everything but not too expensive....not asking much
tempted by the fact that you get everything with this one. presume the carrycot attaches to the main pushchair for when they are tiny?
