From the 26th of February, UPPAbaby Australia is offering each reviewer that takes the time to write a review a free Bumbo Elipad. It is possible that the reviewers below may have received this incentive.
I have the 2015 version so is slightly heavier than the newer version. I don't mind the heavier base (as I find it easy to lift) but some people may find this difficult to manage. The wheel base is also wide so can be difficult to navigate through narrow spaces. Pram was purchased due to its capability to transport 2 children (which we have not used it for to date) and it is certainly less of a beast than side-by-side prams traditionally used for this purpose. The parts all click together very easily and the storage compartment is quite large.
Purchased in December 2017 for A$999.00.
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!
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.
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
I always wanted an uppababy
I was always going to get an uppababy, I wanted one and that was it! I didn’t look around which looking back I wish I did.
Look, it’s a great single pram - great basket, easy to push, looks lovely but it’s really not great for any terrain that isn’t flat.
That being said though we do like outlets pram but wish maybe it had better wheels. :)
Horrible, not worth the money!
I thought purchasing a higher end stroller would refrain from stress. This stroller is absolutely horrible! I pinch my fingers every time I close it, it's awkward to lift into my vehicle. I absolutely tread taking it out. Then the car seat for the stroller is awkward, heavy and bulky.
I would not recommend spending the money on this stroller!

Amazing pram as single and double
I have used the vista as a single pram for two years and for 2 months as a double with my second child. I can not fault it! We use the bassinet for all day sleeps until about 4 months old knowing it is ventilated and safe. I use a mixture of the maxicosi capsule, bassinet and a universal infant insert in the rumble seat alongside the main seat so I can always find a configuration to meet my needs.
Love it! You won’t regret it
I love the pram! It’s easy to push around with your child in the pram on both gravel roads & smooth surfaces! We got the upper adapters which provides a huge amount of extra storage in the already provided great storage! It is easy to clean and wears really well! Used both the bassinet & seat & both couldn’t fault. It folds easily in 2 simple steps & is not hard to lift back into the car. I have a chronic bad back and I can lift this and manage this pram very easily! Great value and worth the $$
Bought to replace my single and so glad I chose this!
Bought to replace my single pram as needed a double pram I child switch between single and double mode easily and it had lots to live up to. I needed a pram where the seat could unclip from base and stowed separately as was unable to lift the weight of your average pram and the vista does this easily. It narrow enough to navigate easily most places my old single could such as a supermarket checkout or between racks in a store in double mode and is very easy to maneuver. Easy to clean fabric. Awesome foot brake - can put on and off easily in th...ongs. Seats sit completely upright so child not straining forwards all the time. Only thing I would say is belly bar is a little high - my 6 month old has grown out of bassinet so is in the normal toddler seat but it blocks her view a little due to hight and it at the right height to chew. With my old pram it was much lower and I also found it supported her little frame better than this one does and really needs an insert even at this age unlike my old pram. Uppababy does have one you can buy though but I think I will wait it out. I also find I jam my fingers sometimes when I am carrying the folded frame as has a little movement still, however it is easy to actually gold and unfold. Favourite thing is the amazing basket which is huge and can fit soooo many groceries in it! Despite these things I would certainly buy this again for a double as it ticks all the boxes I really need it to!
Best! Totally worth the cost
When I was loooking for a pram I swear I tested every double on the market, and no others really compared to the Vista. It’s not too bulky or clunky for a double, and steers like a dream, even when you’re pushing it u a bumpy hill one-handed while balancing a toddler on your hip - which is exactly what you don’t realise that you need from a pram. Super easy to fold up and flip into the boot. And to top it off, the storage basket is HUGE, I can do the grocery shopping without needing a trolley (and with any luck the baby can sleep the whole time...). Comes with both seat and bassinet so that you can change between them as you please (as opposed to some which you have to pull apart and use the same frame). Absolutely love my Vista, cannot recommend it highly enough as both a single and double.
Perfect pram for all families
My wife and I decided to get the vista because of its storage space and dual seating arrangements. 5 stars for storage. Worth the money and convenience. Dont bother buying a bugaboo because it doesnt have any storage space at all and its too expensive. Uppababy is the way to go. :)
Love this pram - soo glad we chose it!
We tested a lot of prams but were looking for a pram that would convert easily to a double pram without being too squishy and claustrophobic for the babes; and one that had a big basket underneath to allow me to do grocery shopping without having to take the car...the Uppababy Vista was perfect on both these accounts and more!! The shopping basket is huge, fits heaps!! So roomy for the babes too, with a nice big sleep rated bassinet which is perfect for newborns when out and about, or just at home too! The rumble seats for older babes are great...too and it is all very lightweight and super easy to setup and packdown. It steers on a dime with one hand, love it! The navy colour (Taylor) goes with everything and doesn’t look dirty quickly which is great. Can easily make babe forward/rear facing too which was also a must for us! We have loved this pram and look forward to many more years using it with a growing family!
Perfect for growing family!
Huge under basket for shopping, can steer with one hand, smooth ride and accommodates growing family from one to three kids. Easy to fold/adapt, solid pram, no risk of tipping over. Comfortable, my kids always slept in it as it reclines right back. Not as wide as bugaboo donkey which is a bonus so easy to move through doors and public places. would recommend!
Best pram ever!
I love my UPPAbaby Vista. It is clear that a lot of time and effort has gone into the manufacture of this pram. It is very easy to maneuver and folds up easily. The storage basket underneath is also the biggest and strongest I have seen by far. Also, the customer support I have received has been excellent. Highly recommend!
The research paid off!
I had read how many mums buy more than one pram as they are unhappy with their first choice and I was determined for this not to happen to me. I researched and test drove heaps of prams and chose the vista and love it! My baby naps in it during the day and it is the perfect out and about model. He is now (3 months) at a size that I can use either the seat or the bassinet depending on what I am doing.
Great pram, really easy to push even with 3 kids (one on the skateboard attachment). The only time I have difficulty pushing it is doing the "kerb pop" back off the road, and only when I have my toddler in the front seat. This is still easier in my vista than other prams I've tried. Easy to fold and unfold. The basket is the best I've seen on any pram, huge and very easy to access. The brake is also great, push on and off so there are no sore toes from taking the brake off in sandals. It seems like a durable, well made pram, and uppababy have a reputation for having an excellent warranty so I have no doubts that any faults would be fixed without hassle.
Best Pram on the market
I love my uppababy vista purchased in 2016
Amazing quality and so versatile with all the different seating combos which will come in handy when baby no. 2 comes along.
Very easy to fold and store and i love that the bassinet is overnight sleep friendly which comes in very handy for sleep overs at Omas!

The art of juggling
Love the basket for all the shopping trips made easy. Will even fit the nappy bag with all the groceries. Great options to flip multiple configurations for the seats and bassinet. Just wish rumble and bassinet used the same lower adapter so it was more versatile. Also, very disappointed that the travel bag can only fit one seat despite this being a dual child pram. Am hoping to get some great mileage in the coming years. We expect this will be a keeper and like it so much we’ve already brought the skateboard despite our oldest was under 1yo at the time of purchase. We don’t go anywhere without our pram (unless plane travel is involved lol)!!

Highly recommend!! Amazing pram!
I love that the Vista accomodate for 2 children easily (3 if you have the skate board) and is still easy to manoeuvre without loosing basket space!
It is also super easy to fold up and fits in small boot.
The large wheels make it easy to push on grass or uneven surfaces and the fold put UV protectors are genius!!
I use mine everyday and could not recommend it more!!
Best pram out there!!!
My husband and I had been searching for a pram throughout the pregnancy and as we would like to have 2 close in age we decided to go straight for a double pram. The pram is not too wide and the bassinet is perfect for a newborn and for when we need to leave the baby with grandparents for a couple of hours. It is stylish and has so many extras.
