    Default Phil & teds prams pros & cons

    If you have a phil & teds pram, are you able to tell me the pro's and con's of them? They seem to be everywhere, and i'm interested in getting one.

    Pros:
    Compact
    Light
    Beautiful to steer
    Both kids are comfy
    Being able to see newborn
    I think they look nice
    Not as expensive as some of the other brands.

    CONS
    Basket space
    Toddler seat doesn't recline (thought it might in the newer ones??)
    Replacement parts are expensive
    Some parts deteriorate fairly quickly.

    I have the p&t verve 4wd

    Pros

    Heaps easy to stear, holds my heavy tall toddler in it nicely
    The sun shade thingo is awesome and can be moved in heaps of positions to block the sun
    The second seat reclines (yup refresh it has 3 postions now)
    Folds flat, dont need to remove second seat to fold

    Cons

    The only one i have noticed so far and ive only had it a few weeks

    Is folding it up, the handle bar touches the ground completely and i have a few scuff marks on the plastic brake (our brake system is on the handle) which i hate, also it was raining yesterday and folding it up in the carpark meant the whole handle bar got wet >_<

    Im still completely happy with my purchase tho. Its the best pram ive ever had.
