I bought a steelecraft cruiser for my DS who is almost 11 months old, I've been happy with it this far, but am starting to notice a problem with the recline mechanism.  Ie it is difficult to engage and disengage.

I've read several threads where people have said that they bought one, but later bought a new different pram because, 'you get what you pay for'.

For those people who have done this, was it that you weren't happy with the pram in general (size, ride etc), or did parts of the pram stop working/fall off?

We really can't afford to buy another pram, but walking DS in the pram is also one of the most reliable ways to get him to sleep during the day, so I will find a way if the pram is going to start falling apart.

our did that and it ended up breaking competly, we did buy the a 2009 version second hand though so was already old. we ended up buy a baby jogger city mini for $300 brand new. much much better.

also as she got bigger it became horrible to push and really tippy on the bus.
