We bought this pushchair just before my daughter was born. She's now 1 year old. We've used the pushchair regularly with the carseat attachment, almost daily, but not excessively...mostly for school-runs and walks to the grocery store. Initally, we thought the pushchair was very good - sturdy, comfortable and secure for our little girl. However, it was not long before we started noticing that it hass become extremely difficult to manoeuvre, particularly when you are just getting moving. Also, it is very difficult to steer and frequently veers off to one side or the other. We've tried re-inflating the tires but it was no use. Sometimes, as well, we have found that it could tip very easily due to the difficulty in getting the pushchair moving.<br>Very difficult to attach the carseat to the adaptors and while there are safety markings on the carseat base in the car to show it's attached properly, there is no such security on the pushchair which means you have to lift the whole thing up by the carseat handle to make sure the thing is secure. Also quite awkward to remove the carseat as the buttons to remove it are on either side of the seat meaning you kind of need a third hand to grab the carrying bar of the carseat. Again, not very safe if you are doing this on your own.<br>We've recently started using the actual seat instead of the car seat and find that while simpler to attach to the chassis than the carseat, you still have to do the lift test to ensure it's locked in so it's a bit awkward.<br>The pushcair is very creaky and groany.<br>Very bulky and for us means that we have to store it in the car rather than our flat but we knew that going into it.<br>This thing has become the bain of my life but I don't have another £500 to spend trying out another one so we're stuck with it, unfortunately. So wish I could have loved this pushchair!Read moreLess

"I absolutley love my Mura 3, and would highly recommend…"
I absolutley love my Mura 3, and would highly recommend it to most people. My son is now 6 months old and I have used it most days since he was born. We have recently moved onto the pushchair seat from the carrycot/ car seat and I am just as pleased with this.<br><br>Below are the pros and cons I personally have found with it.<br><br>Pros: <br>1. Very easy to fold up and down, even with the pushchair attached. This does take a few practise gos but once you get the hang of it, it is very straight forward.<br><br>2. Robust tires. We go out for daily walks, usually an hour or more and I have found this system an absolute delight to push. I have never had any problems with punctures or issues with the tires at all, and we have been over some rough terrain. The only thing I can't attest to yet is how well it performs in ice and snow as I have only had it since May. <br><br>3. Great for carrying shopping. You won't get the weekly shop in there or anything, but it has a good size basket that accomodates the rain cover and leaves plenty room for anything you might pick up in town. I have also found with the weight of it I can get a good few bags on the handle with pram hooks without risking it tipping.<br><br>4. Folds down well to fit in the car. This is a big, bulky system. There is no getting around that, and I will get onto the cons I have found with that in a minute. However, I have not had an issue with getting it into my car. I drive a Peugoet 206, so not the smallest boot out there, but not a milion miles away from it either. I have to remove the parcel shelf, but without the pushchair attachment I can get it in without removing the wheels, and with the attachment it fits easily with one wheel removed. The wheels are very easy to remove and replace by pushing in a button. The only issue occurs on dank rainy days where they are likely to get dirty. However, I always have plenty of baby wipes to clean up after, and would use alcohol gel after touching the wheels were they visibly dirty or not, so it's not a huge issue for me. There is also still space in the boot for shopping <br><br>5. Comfort. It is very well padded and lined, and my son appears to be very comfortable in it. There is good head support in the pushchair attachment and it reclines. It doesn't go totally flat but very close to it, and he is quite happy in there whenever he falls asleep when we are out. <br><br>6. Forward and parent facing pushchair. This is my current favourite thing about the system. My son like facing outward and seeing what is going on in the world. However, when he gets tired and grumpy, he just wants to look at Mummy and Daddy. The pushchair attachment can be turned around easily at any point to allow him to face us when this happens. I wouldn't attempt it with baby in the seat, so it's not as handy when I'm on my own, but when there is someone there to hold him, or somewhere to set him down while I do it, this is an invaluable plus to this system.<br><br>7. Value for Money. We paid just overRead moreLess

"We returned the Maxi Cosi Mura 3 to Boots yesterday…"
We returned the Maxi Cosi Mura 3 to Boots yesterday and have today collected a Phil & Teds Explorer which is superior in every way. In short the Maxi Cosi was of shocking quality - cheap plastic joints that over time (8 months) become loose and snapped in and out of place - quite alarming when you have an 8 month old with exploring little fingers. This pushchair may look a la mode but if you want an all terrain vehicle this is not for you. We mostly use a baby carrier but on pram walks this just wasn't up to it. The pushchair is very bulky, the whole contraption wobbles and it creaks. Our ratings are as compared to the new pram.Read moreLess

"I LOVE THIS PRAM!!! I have a toddler and now…"
I LOVE THIS PRAM!!!<br>I have a toddler and now a 7 month old baby. I used the Mura 3 with my first child- the carseat, hard carrycot and buggy seat and I am now using it with my 2nd baby. I also bought the footmuff and have been stopped many times from envious mums wanting their own. <br>I have had 1 puncture in the 3 years we've owned it and even then it wasn't a big deal as it comes with a pump or you can go to any petrol station and pump it up until you get home. I took it to a bike shop and they fixed it forRead moreLess

"This pushchair is lovely and comfy, easy to use (if…"
This pushchair is lovely and comfy, easy to use (if I can fold it down, anyone can - I am a total technophobe) and good value for money - especially from kiddicare. <br><br>However, I've been using it for 3 months and I'm on my 3rd puncture, which is a pain. Also, it's very wide - not great for getting round shops. I use it for the school run, for which it's ideal, but I could really do with another pushchair for shopping and in the car. Folded down it takes up the entire boot!Read moreLess
