This stroller was easy for me to put together - I barely referred to the manual, but when I did, it made sense. Loved that no tools were required!

Lots of people have said that the seat doesn't have a full recline. There is a small (silver on mine) plastic tab in the recline mechanism that keeps it from laying flat. Just pop it out if completely flat is what you *need*. I am assuming it is a US safety feature since it says it is a US part only in the parts list.
This stroller is VERY easy to push. I love the adjustable handles. Even though I'm short (5'4") I have a strange stride and always end up kicking the wheels of strollers. Not this model! The extra distance I get with the handles extended insures I don't kick the wheels.
My son loves to sit in it and I like that the snack tray can be removed completely when it's not needed. I also appreciate the 'plugs' to cover the holes where the snack tray goes if you're not using it.
From the very first time I opened and closed it, I didn't have any problems with the process. I'm not tall and I'm not strong. It just pops open and folds closed easily. Maybe because I'm used to the monster travel system stroller I've used for the past 2 years.
It's expensive, and I wish I'd gotten this when my son was an infant. But I finally broke down and got it anyway because I was tired of hauling that giant travel system in and out of my SUV.
I got a 2006 model and the color is called Pepita - it's a fun yellow that's not too bright.
I don't think the basket is as small as some say. It is awkward learning to use a front load basket but it has plenty of room.
