About - Mia Moda Facile

The Mia Moda Facile is part of the stroller test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, traditional stroller models like the Facile are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Ease of use:
Ease of use is based primarily on ease of using and adjusting the safety harness, folding and unfolding, adjusting backrest, lifting and carrying, engaging wheel brakes and car seat removal and installation (only for compatible strollers).

Maneuverability:
Maneuverability is assessed by trained staffers on how well the strollers maneuvered S-turns through cones, narrow sections, grass, dirt trails, uphill, downhill and curbs while walking.

Safety:
Safety is assessed by testing for compliance with the most current version of the standard, ASTM F833-13, and stability and usage tests designed by Consumers Union.

Comment:
I hate this stroller. We've had it for over a year and in that time, both front wheels have snapped off when pushing it on uneven sidewalks. The company did send us replacement wheels, which were not intuitive to put back on. One of the straps also broke, so we had to put that back on as well. Getting the fabric off the frame is difficult and putting it back on is impossible. The stroller is incredibly dirty and there is no way to wash it. So, please don't buy this stroller.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

We purchased this based on CR review and used it while traveling by plane. It held together OK but when we used it at a zoo the flap for the legs broke and now it is basically useless. The way it folds pinches my hand everytime I get near it. It is flimsy and I can't seem to adjust it properly to make my child comfortable in it. It was OK for one trip but it isn't durable, at all.

Comment:
I registered for this stroller based on CR reports. I wanted an umbrella stroller so I didn't have to deal with the bulk of a travel system. I'm not enthralled with it, but I don't hate it. One design flaw is when stowing the stroller, the wheels fold up and hit the umbrella cover making it dirty all the time. I can pretty much get it folded with one hand, but unfolding takes one and half plus a foot. It takes up more space than I expected but less than a travel system. Once our daughter grew out of her infant seat, I'm surprised at how little we use a stroller since she can sit in the carts in the stores. So next time, I'll probably just go with a cheapie $20 umbrella stroller for around town and invest in a jogging stroller for when we take walks or hikes.
