I got the 2008 model for a baby show gift 2 years ago. It was easy to assemble, I did it myself. I have been using it on a regular basis now, I probably jog about 10-12 miles a week and it still works like new. The place I jog at is very hilly and curvy a hand brake would make it easier to maneuver, but over all it does pretty well. Since I have been using it for so long I have found ways to overcome it. It works just as well in town, as in the country, or beach, or camping. When my son was younger the snap and go car seat worked great. Now he is two and I have a new baby and I am using the car seat for him and it still works just as well. We are now looking for a double jogger for me, but until then I use this one while my husband watches my other son. Pros: 12" Swivel wheel that locks well in jogging mode Sun shade is not attached to stroller handle bar so it can be moved to block son Fits in most doorways so great for shopping Has a large basket underneath Comes with car seat and snap n' go base Has a wrist strap for jogging that works great Cons: no hand brake (but so fare no one makes swivel well jogging strollers with a hand brake) When folded it take up a lot of room, no problem if you have a large vehicle like an SUV or mine van For long runs on rugged tureen shakes a lot car seat snap n' go car seat only works with Baby trend products Over all I am very happy with this model. For just a basic jogging stroller without the extras this works great in walking and jogging mode and it is durable for the money. I would recommend it to anyone looking for the basics.
