Yeah, H didn't like the Cruz because he thought the wheels were a lot more unsubstantial. We'll probably be doing a lot of sidewalk strolling.
If you're only doing sidewalk strolling, the Cruz is perfect. It's not meant for trails or serious off-roading, but with sidewalks and flat grass you're perfectly fine. The only thing I think would turn people off is it's not a terribly flat fold. It's easy to fold, but if we had a small car, it would take up the entire trunk. Not a problem for us with an SUV, but something to think about. Otherwise, we love this stroller.
