Great for 1 year, then disappointing
We bought this pram mid 2013 and it performed very well for 1 year. It was easy to manoeuvre, collapse and put up, great to travel with and compact for out apartment. At 1 year problems began, the ball bearings fell out of the front wheel, steering was more difficult, by 2 years there was a lot of corrosion on the metal, the wheels couldn't be removed, then both wheels eventually fell off. At 2.5 years the pram is completely unusable. I feel disappointed because I felt like MB was a reliable brand, and the pram was relatively expensive. We lived in the inner city and then in suburban Melbourne and the pram had very normal usage.
Questions & Answers
Can this pram be used off road at all? Looking for something super compact to take away in our campervan and able to use on bush tracks, beach etc. or is there another one more suitable?
No! It's completely useless except on the smoothest surfaces because the tyres are solid rubber and it jiggles the baby. I'm currently in correspondence with MB about this - although it says it's an urban pram, it also should stay true to their "off road" philosphy and be at least comfortable on uneven pavements.
