Anyone bought any of the Hauck pushchairs listed above? Hauck's travel systems seem to be good bargains, but its review is very limited and we can hardly find any on display in most of the baby stores. Only saw it once in tube. I should have asked. hmm

What's your budget? I don't really know much about Haucks but I'm not sure I've really seen them recommended on this board, could be wrong though. I have seen lots of recommendations on here for other pushchairs which I think may be in a similar price range - recent ones that spring to mind are the Graco Evo and Joie Chrome. Hopefully someone else with more advice than me will be along soon!

I've had 3 hauck pushchairs at different times, two of which had quality/functional issues. I always want to like them because excellent cheaper things do exist and they often have good features such as reversible seats, small strollers that take carrycots etc. I would try to look at what you're interested in in the flesh though if you can as one out of the three I had was totally fine quality wise. I think precious little one have them if you're anywhere near them?

The two other pushchairs mentioned in the above post, the chrome and Evo, seem to be proving themselves as reliable and very reasonably priced. There is also the musty evo. Another option is something like a baby jogger city mini or britax b agile with car seat and carrycot.

whitewineforme and Ihaeparties, thank you so much for the comments and recommendation! smile We decided to give up hauck and go with Graco Evo. My DH loves it! It almost has every features that we expected. And it's only 6kg! This is just perfect for me! There is no lift in our flat. I will have to drag the pushchair to the second floor by myself during the day. Plus we can have a look of the pushchair before we buy it.

I had a hauck - it was, well, OK (didn't stick with it for long but I don't with many pushchairs).

Worst instruction manual ever though - I hate those cryptic no words and incomprehensible picture challenge ones anyway!

Hi miaowthecat, we found some videos about how to use the pushchair on youtube. I think it is much easier than reading the instruction. Btw, the presenters in the videos have very strong German accent, probably someone from their German headquarters. I guess that's perhaps why the instruction manual is not well written in English. grin

Oh at one point we were on youtube in the maternity ward trying to figure out how to do something on ours!
