high price and still need to buy needed features

I bought this with the expectation this was a excellent pram with many features. However, when my son come along i realised that you actually needed to purchase very expensive accessories to use the features. For example, when baby is in lie flat position there is no backing leaving the baby completely exposed. To fix this you need to purchase a $30 backflap that frankly should be included with the pram.
I should have bought a mountain buggy with all this included.

Great stroller but often needs new tires

The stroller is great, easy to handle and everything else that is promised. Except for the tiny detail of having to buy new tires for the back every 4 months or so.

I have a 2010 Phil & Teds Vibe double that was used for one child starting at age 1 since I knew we might have a second or a friend in tow(I even ran on smooth paved surfaces for short jogs) and then the second child came 3 years after. The height of the main seat was great for a tall 3.5 year old, I placed my second in the back seat safe and comfortable at 3 months old. I loved having this after a c-section because it was one of the litest full featured tandom doubles, could fold with second seat attached more compact than anything else I had tried. I even sold it once done after 3 years (when the stroller was 4 years old) and got a great return on my investment for having used it (and keeping it well maintained and clean). I would recommend sliming the tires to avoid flats. That was a life saver and very inexpensive to do. Over all, as a stroller junkie mom and now a business owner of a small stroller shop, I recommend the vibe over many other doubles out there! it's worth every penny!
Great Long Term Buy

We purchased the Vibe for our first child a few years ago specifically with the intension that it would be the only stroller we brought to last us through any future children. This was the only pram we couldn't break in the store. Our son is now a tall 3 year old and still comfortably fits. We also purchased the cocoon to use with it but I think I'd prefer the peanut for any other kids. We havent purchased the second seat but our son may be more interested in the scooter attachment. Overall the Vibe is easy to use and navigate and has been put though its paces and come out on top.

Purchased in 2009 for Baby#1, AWESOME pram for running, walking dog, etc. Comfy ride for kids (based on how often they slept in it even on 'offroad' tracks)
Adaptability for different aged kids...YES! We have used the carseat adapter (Graco), which was great between car and pram - COMPLETELY recommend this pram for that benefit alone!
Then...double kit on top and bottom - fabulous! Perfect for baby and toddler! 5 years later we are still using this pram on a daily basis for walking dog and 2 1/2 year old. We are about to order 5th lot of wheels, easy to order and replace, this pram has done a LOT of kilometres on all sorts of surfaces and still going strong!
This is the one!

Stop looking- this is the one! I have had my vibe now for five years and it is the best decision I have ever made. No ageing or fading... It still looks and feels brand new. So versatile and so much lighter and easier to push compared to others we tried!!!!

I bought this product last 2 years ago and I'm happy with that. Unfortunately, when I want to buy the wheel, It was hard because the shop said this product is old product and I need to buy online which I did buy online. At that time, my ordered was gone and arrived 3 weeks latter after I sent an email that I didn't received it.I also said it's hard to changed the Tyre by yourself. Overall, this product is good and I love it.
Happy with it

We've had this for awhile now and I'm really happy with how it's lasted. The tyres do go flat easily but we took them into a bike shop where they line the tyres with some special stuff to stop them going flat and we've had no issues since. The pram has held up really well despite the huge amount of usage I've done with it. It's brilliant for big/taller kids - my first son was in the 99th percentile for height and he was able to comfortably fit in it for up to 4 years of age so it's a great long-term investment. We've recently had another baby and love, love, love the bassinet attachment that fits into this pram. I've had no issues with manuevoring this pram, it steers well for me. Love the flexibility in the recline of seat.
Heavy and impractical

I bought this pram online and I really regret not going to look at it in a shop first. I am a busy mum of 3, and need an easy to fold/light weight pram for a newborn and toddler that is easy to get in and out of the car. Unfortunately, this pram fits none of these requirements. It's a huge pram, compared to the older style vibe, it's so heavy, I can't even lift it into the boot when folded. Wish I'd bought a mountain buggy duet or another bugaboo which are much easier to use. I am probably going yo have to sell it. Only used it twice!
It's so easy!

I brought this four months ago and baby has been in it every day of his life (8weeks) it's light easy to use its safe it's hard wearing. We live rural so when we go out for a walk we hit loads of bumps and the vibe just goes with the flow. The framing is light weight which makes it easy to fold into the boot. It's also cool how you can fold in half and it stands upright. I couldn't remember how to work it once baby was here quick YouTube video and reminded how easy it is. We love the vibe
My favorite stroller!

I purchased the original vibe in 2008 for my 1 and 3 year olds. Absolutely loved it!! This past year I had one little part on the frame break and phil&teds customer service was great to deal with. Instead of replacing the one part they gave me a whole new frame! I have the vibe2 now and still love my stroller. I am expecting baby #5 soon and expect this stroller will last until we are done with the stroller age years. I love how versatile it is and can be used in the city and out in the country. I have used it for jogging too. My only complaint would be that the brake is in a bad location on the handle bar and it gets pushed accidentally at times. Phil&teds by far has the best customer service and definitely seeks to keep their customers happy!

We bought this 3 years ago with the second seat and so glad we did. We now have 2 kids that we're able to stroll around. My only complaint is that the back seat is a little small, but that being said my 9 month old is quite big. I Use the stroller for running and have had to shorten my stride or I kick the back seat.
Compact & Versatile

So happy I decided to go against the odds and purchase the Phil & Teds Vibe. This stroller is extremely compact and versatile even with the double kit! Compared to others on the market it is an absolute pleasure to get in and out of the car which I was worried I'd struggle with being heavily pregnant. Folding with or without the double kit is a breeze as the vibe folds the same in either situation. This pram is easily maneouvarable even when maxed out with weight. I personally will not be considering other brands anymore when it comes to needing a double pram!
I recommend this pram to everyone!

I have had this pram since 2009 and still love it. It's now carrying my 3rd baby and is as good as when I bought it! It's easy to use, adaptable, comfy and stylish! I've added the carrycot to it now and think it's wonderful that Phil and Teds still make products that adapt to my 5 year old pram!

So glad we made the choice for the vibe stroller. I know that it is going to last us for many years and more babies. Easy to use and so great for the walking parents who like to get out and about. Plenty of room if you have a larger baby ... Won't need to get another pram as your children grow. Love it

We've had our Vibe for five years with two kids and we've absolutelty loved it! It's still in great shape after numerous road trips and plane rides, and plowing through sand, snow, dirt, gravel, etc.! We love the inline design, making it so slick to navigate crowds and corners. A couple of years ago a small part on a tire busted, and phil&teds quickly shipped out a replacement. Had we not been able to fix it, we would've bought another Vibe -- we love it too much to switch.

I got this pram for all the raving reviews about how great it is with and without the second seat. I am not happy with what I found. The second seat can go up the top or down the bottom which is great but if it is up the top it sits so low that it sits on the babies legs, if it goes down the bottom you can not lay the top down as there is no room. The tires need to either be stronger or foam at the back like the front. Used as a single pram it is great, it was just needed as the double.
Love, love, love this stroller!

I bought my Vibe stroller second hand from Kijiji in Canada and it has seen me through 3 rocky mountain winters, 3 dry and hot summers and I have pushed it for hundreds of miles and love it. It folds down well and fairly easily, although a little heavy putting it in the back of our truck or SUV but not too bad. My 3 year old and now another 6 month old both have loved being in this stroller, in fact have slept in it for many naps and even overnight sleeps when on the go. The brake is really strong but the handle is tough to release, just needs a really tight squeeze. I have found popping the wheels of every 6 months or so and cleaning the bearings and shaft keep the wheels rolling smoothly, have never had to replace a wheel, and we have done ALOT of miles! Love the storage space underneath, have taken it to music festivals with the kids, umbrella, small soft cooler, etc all loaded under and on it. Just love this stroller, the double seat is super handy, clocks on and off really easily and can mix and match with the older kid or baby being in the main part. Will be sad to see it go when we don't need it anymore! It will hold its value too which is great.

I absolutely love the versatility of this pram in terms of all the riding options it offers. The length of the seat is also wonderful as my son is very tall yet I have no doubt he wont grow out of it any time soon. It's also very stylish and people often comment on it/ask about it not to mention how useful it is that the second seat can lie back when in the under position. For the price thought I have to say there are several features I am disappointed with.
Firstly it feels much heavier than my old e3 and it is very difficult to steer at times. Also the classic phil and teds system to lay the main seat down is a real pain (the zips and buckles) when baby wakes up as it is difficult to hold the child up at the same time as trying to zip and clip everything back up. My final issue with this model is the location of the break, a button on the side would be more practical that in the centre as I often bump the break on mid walk. Over all I feel the cons far outweigh the pros and based on weight and steering ability alone in hindsight I would not have up graded. I would definitely recommend going in store and trying before you buy :)

This is a great stroller, have had it for a month, and the one thing I wish I would have done was to get the verve because the single large wheel makes turning in tight corners from a standstill very difficult, the smaller wheels are better for that and living in SF the verve is better suited. Otherwise, very comfortable stroller.

I am sad to say, but I have been quite disappointed with this stroller. We are constantly replacing the wheels, as they puncture easily. It does not maneuver as easily as I would expect. Frankly, it can be rather cumbersome at times. I wish I were able to rate this stroller higher, alas, it has not lived up to the hype. I like the inline aspect, but for that, I would not have gone so far as buying a vibe--I would have just purchased a classic.

I bought the Vibe with 2 seats when I had my second child in 2009 and I am using it now for my third. I has been very durable, no rusting, and shows little wear despite the many, many airline trips and home use. I also have a side by side which I used more for the park. But trips to downtown require a thinner vehicle. The tri-wheel can be a bit unstable going up/down curbs. It also takes great practice to collapse the double Vibe quickly but I am now a master. It is not lightweight, but I believe that adds to its stability and longevity. It can certainly be managed by a pregnant woman (My litmus test). With my third child, I have kept the lower seat attached for extra storage space. I would buy it again

Just completely satisfied and ecstatic with this buggy, I have had so many 3 wheeler buggies in the past and there has always been at least a couple of things that i'd been unhappy about with them, but this Vibe Buggy is just exactly perfect for me! I love that you don't have to add extra buggy liners as the seat is so cushiony soft my 2yr old just dozes off very relaxed in it, just love the seat, huge basket absolutely awesome! I love that it is so easy and smooth to push even one handed! and the brake being on the handle bar it's excellent and so much easier then a foot brake. And i'm suprised at how easy it folds up & down to, and im even more happy that it fits in my car boot so easy, withing having a small opening boot it was hard to find a large 3 wheeler that would fit, after trying 5 other brands this is the only one that fits! And I love that it's adaptable for when the next baby arrives :D I brought mine in Cobalt (Blue) just LOVE it, I am only sad that i'm not small enough to be cruised around in this!.
Overall this pram has got it all, from style to sturdy! Thanks P&T! This gives me a great excuse to get out and walk more.

We've been using this stroller for the last month and are often asked by other parents what make and model it is! The functionality is superb so far- many options to configure for one or both children riding. Having an inline double that folds with both seats attached means it can go anywhere- park, zoo, mall, restaurant. The adjustable handlebar is great too- allows for a shorter grandma and a very tall parent to both use the stroller comfortably. This is a great stroller for our family with both a toddler and infant!
