We bought this stroller in July 2006. After extensively reviewing many strollers, we decided on the Pliko P3 for several different reasons. First, when testing the stroller in the store, I loved how easy it was to collapse and how lightweight the stroller was to carry. Second, I liked that the stroller was simple without all the excessive "bells and whistles" they tend to have these

days. Also, it was nice to have a stroller that fit our bucket car seat
and not have to purchase the same brand of both. In addition, Peg Perego has an established name for producing high-end baby products and we decided to spend the extra money to have a product we believed would not only serve our needs for our child, but any additional children we may add to our family in the future.
Unfortunately after having the stroller for a year and a half, we have been disappointed. It started the first day we received our new stroller. After we assembled it we realized it did not work and we had to send it to Peg Perego. We were originally told by a customer service agent that it would be replaced since the product was made in Italy, they didn't have the means to service them in the U.S. Our original stroller was sent back to us and we were told that it was "fixed." The stroller was sent back in working condition, but not up to the standard that we expected, since now two hands have to be used to close the stroller, which can be very difficult and frustrating when dealing
with a small child. Not exactly the convenient one-handed stroller that we were looking for. The next problem may seem minor, but it still reflects on the quality of the product. The side "Peg Perego" labels have almost come off, which in my opinion makes the stroller look cheap (one of the labels came in bad condition to begin with). The other problems that we have been dealing with are with the wheels and maneuvering of the stroller. The wheels
continuously squeak and sometimes they will lock up making it difficult
to push or turn the stroller with our child inside of it. We're disappointed that we spent over $300 on a product that we thought was going to last us for several years and now we're just hoping that we can continue to use it for our first child.
