My dream pram, love it so much.
May sound silly to have a ‘dream pram’, but I did and this was it, and it hasn’t failed me! One year on and I still love it the same, if not more than I did when we first purchased it.
Great pram but not for use on gravel tracks eg: walk in the park
Great pram for around town. But disappointed, I was recommended this pram by the baby shop for where I live saying it is suitable for gravel tracks, unfortunately it is not and within 3 months of use all the mechanisms around the wheels wore right down and jammed up, even with me doing more regular maintenance than suggested (It is something that Uppababy must see because I was told they haven't seen one as bad as this before, so please beware if you go to a park or zoo anywhere that has the tiniest bit of gravel). A costly exercise for me to find this out, this type of issue is not covered by warranty, although Uppababy did replaced my frame (thank you!) I have now had to purchase a second pram because I know it will happen again and then be out of pocket a lot of money because it is not covered by the warranty. I have also had to make soft covers to protect all wheel mechanisms so lessen the chance of it happening again and try to make the pram last, and I now only use this pram around town.
(I was also without a pram for a good ten days just before Christmas)
Purchased in March 2018.
We absolutely love this pram. Best baby item we purchased. Compared to other prams at the same price point, the uppa baby is way more intuitive to use, looks classier and converts to a 2-baby pram without becoming enormous. It has a substantial wheel-base but is amazingly manoeuvrable. Our baby seems very comfy!
Purchased in July 2018.
Great pram highly recommend
I am so glad that I purchased this pram. The basket storage is huge and allows me to fit so much shopping in the bottom. Easy to push and fold, also easy for the Grandparents to use. My daughter loves her pram.
Purchased in May 2017 for $1,599.00.
Loved my pram until it broke!
I really loved my Uppababy Vista pram and often recommended it to friends as the best pram ever- has a large storage, folds easily and is great for two kids. This has recently changed.
My son was riding in the Vista with his seat securely attached (on both sides) to the frame. As we were walking, one side of the connector snapped, and his seat fell awkwardly to one side. Thankfully, he was not injured- had he been a smaller infant or not securely strapped in he would have tumbled sideways out of the seat.
I contacted the Manufacturer and they have completely disputed that this could have happened and instead have been insisting that I am negligent. So far, I have been waiting on a response from “head office” in the US for 2 weeks as my story is “impossible.”
Utterly disappointed and disrespected.
Please be careful if you purchase this pram.
Purchased in August 2016 for $1,500.00.
Love every bit of mine!!
Finding a pram with a large basket was hard, this caters for all my birthday / Christmas gifts as well as nappy bag and my mum's handbag when she comes out with us.
Purchased in December 2018 for $780.00.
Spacious! Easy to fold and manoeuvre!
Amazing pram! Super smooth with great storage. I can do my entire grocery shop and fit everything underneath. We even fit our 20L esky underneath. Once transitioned from the bassinet, prams folds in one movement. Can’t wait to use the double option once baby #2 is here.
Only negative is the weight. I had a c-section and wouldn’t recommend lifting for a few months.
We decided on the Uppababy because most of our friends have one and they all raved about it. So glad we did. Easy to manoeuvre, well built and sturdy. The bassinet is a good length (although our son outgrew it pretty quickly), only downside is it gets pretty hot in the bassinet so be careful monitoring the temperature. We used it as a portacot when we went away in those first few months which was great! Our son is comfy in the seat, we purchase the newborn insert which was a good investment.
Ticks every box but safety!
This is the pram my hubby and I were set on. We just instantly fell in love and couldn’t come close to liking any other pram as much... 8 weeks of using it and discovered how dangerous the top of the shoulder straps are because they are just a hoop not an actual clip... can still say it’s a good pram though like everything ELSE about it. Like the basket is huge, it’s so light to lift and push.. bassinet is a good size, has a awesome sunshade to cover bub. But unfortunately something like a safety feature can’t be a fault for me to want to keep the pram/be comfortable having my children in. For Uppababy to not even careless but just try defend themselves... it’s not a cheap pram, care for your customers!
I was so excited to upgrade to the Vista when we found out we were expecting our 3rd. Unfortunately my personal experience didn't live up to my expectations. The first couple of months using it with just my toddler was great but once we added the bassinet the frame started creaking like crazy and feels really rickety. We bought the skateboard hoping that would help but the frame is still creaky and wobbly. I've tried contacting Uppababy to get it repaired or replaced under warranty however I'm still 1 month later trying to find out what's going on. Also the leather on the handle bar has shrunk and looks horrible. It works well on most terrains but does have a wide wheelbase so can be difficult indoors. My bub will happily have nap time in the pram and the bassinet was amazing, unfortunately he only fit until 3 months old.
BEWARE: Great at first...and then you discover its MANY flaws!!!
At first we loved this pram for it's lightweight yet roomy design. It was a breeze to push compared to many other double/tandem prams and we were confident that we'd made the right choice.
HOWEVER, after a few months use we started to regret upgrading our robust and reliable Bugaboo for the trendier Uppababy. Admittedly, we have two children and the pram is used daily but we couldn't get over just how many faults we had!
Firstly, the brake failed and our frame had to be replaced because the locking mechanism was faulty. Next we noticed a creaking sound when we pushed it - this persisted for a couple of weeks until my husband investigated further and discovered that the welding around the base joins had began to part, almost to the point where the entire pram would've collapsed one day when we were out! Again, we had to have the frame replaced under warranty. Then, with the third frame, we've experienced another brake failure (this appears to be a common fault) which I raised with Uppababy directly due to safety concerns only to receive a very blase, couldn't-care-less response.
On another occasion we've had a front wheel just snap off, requiring a replacement yet again. And finally we've had two snack trays crack along the plastic hinges which suggests a weakness in the design. Again, we raised this as a manufacturing flaw but both Uppababy and its Australian distributor refused to replace both trays inferring that they were mishandled. They were not - it's simply a poor design with cheap workmanship. Given that we were somewhat infuriated by the distributor's response we took the matter further with Uppababy HQ. That was a complete waste of time as they have the most incompetent Customer Relations department I've ever experienced. Weeks would pass and I'd hear nothing or be fobbed off to another email address that bounced back. Nobody was interested in helping whatsoever until finally the Customer Relations Manager directed me back to my Australian distributor!?! Useless customer service!!!
Furthermore, if you have only one child seated in the pram you will often experience wobbling front wheels due to the uneven weight distribution. This means the front wheels will flap like crazy so you can't walk any faster than a crawl - ridiculous design!
Both my husband (who is a Senior Mechanical Design Engineer by the way) and I really wanted to like this pram and in our early days of use we would rave about it and recommend it to other couples. However, over time the shine has worn off and we've realised it's just an overpriced piece of junk that is unsafe for long-term, regular use. Sure, it looks nice and initially it feels like a quality pram but we now regret endorsing it to others and cannot recommend it for use with two children.
I'm sorry to say but PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRAM!!!

Love this pram
I searched far and wide for the best pram and I am more than happy with my vista.
I wanted to make sure I would only be buying one pram that would last me a long time as I am planning on having more kids in the future.
The vista is built really really well. The quality is great, it looks amazing. The storage space is spacious - can fit a whole shop for a family of 3 easily. Can add an extra seat for another child. But the best part is by far the drivability. The drive is smooth and it is easy to steer. I am really glad I bought this pram and would 100% recommend it to anyone that wants a really good all round pram.
It's not cheap but you definitely get what you pay for and I'm very happy with my investment.
i love this pram
i found the vista really good as a double pram and not overall heavy to lift when getting into the car or out of it. it fold really easy and at times i could set it up one handed. using it as a double pram was great when my 4 yr old was refusing to walk and it was easy to use.
Uppababy is great. Compact and light. Design is nice too. Easy to fold and fit in smaller cars. Just wish i purchased the uppababy Vista. Also the uppababy strollers are great too. Only thing that i dont like about the uppababy alta is that the baby cant lay flat in the pram.
The extension canopy fabric tears out after 6 months of use and it's not covered under warranty for repair. I don't understand why such fragile fabric is used for the canopy. It's a such expensive pram. Not worthy the money.
The canopy extension is useless under windy condition and not long enough for sunny days.
It also take up a lot of space in the car.
We love our vista pram
We love using our vista pram and taking our little one out for walks. It's very strong and the handle is a good length and the wheels grip very well on the ground. The over top hood really keeps the sun out but the luggage carrier could be much bigger
Best pram on the market
I have been using this pram for over a year and cannot fault it. It is smooth the use, incredible storage, love having bub sitting up so high with me and the sunshade is one of its best features. After trying so many other prams, uppababy was hands down the best quality and smooth ride for both myself and bubs. Love that it can accommodate 2 babies without loss to the storage which is so needed with everything babies need. Cannot recommend the investment anymore. Don't hesitate to try it out, you will love it and buy it immediately!
This stroller is very attractive to me.
This stroller is very attractive to me. First of all, the stroller does feel very sturdy and safe, plus a huge basket that is convenient for shopping. Second, there is a great feature that is the height of the seat. High height of the landscape, so that the baby and our distance closer, communication more convenient. The front and rear seats can then be exchanged for easy folding and opening.
I bought this pram second hand (although it had only been used for 6 weeks by first owner), as i thought the cost brand new was a little steep. Worth every cent! I love how big the storage basket it - I can literally put a whole grocery shop down there.
Its easy to steer and its great being able to change the direction of the seat, as I loved having my baby face me when he was younger. The one handed recline and handlebar adjustment is also so handy!
It is a big pram, but if you like shopping etc it is amazing!
Highly recommend best buy
Easy to push around on all surfaces. Compact fold and lightweight to lift into the car. Bassinet is perfect even if you wish to use it as a overnight sleep, good when travelling in lieu of bring a massive porter cot. Great material you can wipe down clean. I Added on the leather bumper and handle as a perfect addition - it wears well given the fact its in high use when pushing the pram
