Durable, heavy duty, dog friendly!
If you have a dog that requires walking no matter the weather, this is the stroller you NEED. Plasticy crap will not get you through snow, sleet and hail and hold up like the Vista. This stroller will tolerate a lot, including road salt, running over your dog, very bad rain (great rain cover) and look super stylish during mall crawls. Keep the wheels locked most of the time and drives great.
Bassinet is super (although does not come with a rain cover); instead of putting on the floor, bite the bullet and buy the bassinet stand at the same time, keeps wet noses away from your baby. I washed the bassinet exterior in the washing machine as per directions when baby outgrew it, and it held up perfectly, looks like new.
Unlike other pricey strollers, most everything comes included with the Vista, except the bassinet stand and the cup holder. Uppa, please re-engineer your cup holder; it is a necessary part of this stroller, but is not up to the quality of the rest of your system.
