    Problems I encoutered with the switch were:

    1: Brakes didnt engage properly.
    2: When I went to put it up, didnt go straight up as it should, and had to push it into place for it to click.
    3: Generally felt very rickety overall, and seat unit wasnt particularly comfortable for little one, and felt flimsy when trying to recline seat.
    4: It is very long when folded.

    Hope this helps, everyone has differing opinions, and just because it wasnt right for me, doesnt necessarily mean that it wil be wrong for you. But I really do recommend the silver cross linear freeway. Its the best ive had by far.

    Ta. When you say the Silver Cross didn't fold with the seat unit, do you mean the car seat?

    Ditto this, I have the linear freeway and ventura carseat and although LO isn't here yet I find it fab already. Really easy to use and I love the car seat attachment.

    No, I mean the pram/pushchair bit. You have to unclip it and take it off the chassis then fold the chassis, but this is also the case with the mamas & papas ultima aswell. Its a small price to pay for all the positives that the pram gives you.

    Hmm, that strikes me as rather impractical :-/

    We're getting the Loola & the matching car seat - we've read as many reviews as we could find, and can't find any reported problems.

    It is impractical when you are popping it in and out of the car quite a bit, but fine if you dont need to put it down too often. However the car seat fits straight onto the chassis, so if you are only going on a short trip you only need to take the chassis and pop the car seat straight onto it (saving boot space as yo dont need pushchair part). Thats why ive gone for the Loola this time, as it is can be rear facing and it folds with the seat unit attached. There is so much to consider! What about the Silver cross 3d??

    Does the 3D fold down with the push chair attached? And is it possible to have the push chair rear-facing? I'm looking at the Silver Cross website but it isn't clear.

    It is pretty much the same as the mamas & papas pramette, baby can face you for approx 6 months (depending on size), then you turn hood around and remove liner and it turns into a forward facing pushchair. And it folds really compactly (like an umbrella pushchair, with the seat attached). You can also fix the carseat dierctly onto the pushchair. A friend of mine has just got this and she thinks its great, she needed a small pushchair as she only has a small peaugeot 206.
