This was our first forward facing stroller and after doing a lot of research this was one of our top choices. We wanted a lightweight, compact, all-round stroller. We live in a condo so space is at a premium. We paid close to $200 for the Peg Perego Aria OH in Mint 2007 model.

Assembly was pretty easy. The cup holder was the most difficult to put on. I never did keep the cup holder on because it kept popping off. Also I had some metal parts fall off from the peg label during assembly. This did not give a good impression. Also the snap button closures on side panels of the seat do not actually snap onto the stroller. I thought this was a defect because I went to a Babies R Us but it seems that every Peg has this issue??
We took this stroller everywhere: The mall, the sidewalks, the parks, on vacation - we use it a LOT.
It took me a while to get the knack of opening this stroller with one hand but it can be done.
I like the fact that it does have a lot of nice features: the 5 point harness, the reclining back adjustment, the lightness overall is fabulous.
The worst part of this stroller is the steering. It sucks. You simply cannot steer one-handed on any kind of smooth surfaces like tile, hardwood or mall floors. The front wheels swivel sideways and don't like to swivel back straight so you have to push through it until it goes straight again - v. annoying. Even steering with 2 hands is difficult sometimes. This stroller also cannot handle big bumpy sidewalks. It will stop dead in its tracks so it a good idea to always have the harness on your child.
