Third time lucky
After having difficulties with 2 pushchairs, my daughter bought this product. She was looking for a twin pushchair but has to use a very small lift and this pushchair with the additional toddler seat seemed to fit the bill. The Nitro city is a dream to push with exceptional manoeuvrability. It is most frequently used in a big city and we no longer knock fittings over in shops. The toddler sleeps beautifully and is warm and dry whatever the weather. My daughter didn't like the supplied rain cover feeling it spoiled the look of the pushchair but an alternative was inexpensive. The "lie-back" lever could be easier as it is 2 handed but at least the back then reclines gently. Otherwise the quality is very good with extra features and the retailer provides good after sales service if needed. My daughter is often asked where she bought it.My husband likes the way it folds easily for the car and doesn't need dismantling- it's actually quite light when empty. (We have a big car.)It is no more difficult than any pushchair to use on the train or bus.We have only used the Nitro parent - facing as we all like to communicate with the baby and love it

Highly recommended. In searching for the 'perfect' solution, we quickly realized there simply is none and that every pram has its unique quirks. The trick is to find the one that you can live with the best, that suits your lifestyle needs, and offers this with a good value/quality mix. Emmaljunga are probably one of the best made prams in the world. The quality is incredible, and the functionality is exceptional. We love ours. You also have the rarity factor. Bugaboo owners always comment, and when they feel the suspension are usually jealous. The pram is at the heavy end of the scale, because it is solid. But folding and lifting it into the car is really no problem unless you are feeble. I find Which's pram assessment criteria for public transport maneuverability somewhat strange. Seriously, anyone who spends £500+ on a pram is most likely going to have a car, and just about any pram will be a challenge on public transport.

Not machine washable
Hi,The fabric on this pushchair is not machine washable and I think that is really a serious flaw in a pushchair. Tiny babies frequently have leaking nappies and toddlers constantly drop food in their pushchair. I think the the fabric should look "as new" with repeated machine washing to make the pushchair a good investment. In all other respects I think this pushchair is fantastic. I hope the manufacturers will reconsider the fabric. JSP
