Anyone had problems with the new Uppababy Vista??

I've had the new Uppababy Vista for 6 weeks and it has a fault. The wheels make an awful rubbing noise. I've had 3 replacements all with the same problem. Uppababy say its the new tyre design so have no solution other than to 'wait for it to wear down' but it's driving me bonkers!

Anyone else? Thinking of swapping it for an iCandy Peach 3 but wanted the Vista originally so feel hard done by that I have to swap! DC #2 due soon so will be using it as a double so want it to function well (especially for the cost shock)!

That's annoying. I've got the 2012 model and never had a single problem and it still works well with huge toddler ds in!

Silly they changed something that worked well.

I know! I have lots of friends who have the old version and love it! So torn about whether to put up with it or swap it argh!

Maybe sell it and get a good second hand older model!

Is that the 2015 model? I've got the 2014 and a couple issues with it.

Yes the 2015 model. They are giving me a full refund so think we will buy an iCandy instead.

We got the The Uppababy Vista a little over 6months ago.
It's been a dream! Solid, comfy, easy to maneuver what did they do to it!

I love mine too, what a shame. Can't wait to use it again for dc2 due in jan. Hope you're happier with Icandy, my friend has a double and it's fab.

It is a shame as such a great buggy. I've just ordered the iCandy so fingers crossed it's as good!!
