first time mum disappointed.
Not satisfied at all. It was very bumpy and the wheels are terrible. You cant rock the pram back and forth without jerking the whole thing and waking the baby. No I don't think my child looks comfortable until I add some blankets. I have sent an email complaining and they said I have to bring it in, and if there is a problem it has to be sent away. I need a pram! I cant go with out one for anytime as I dont have a driver license.
PROS - alot of Storage underneath, Light weight, Easy to fold and unfold.

Front Wheel Issues
I have been really happy with the purchase of this pram until about 4 weeks ago, when the front wheel situation has become unmanageable. They frequently lock up on all types of surfaces, but in particular tiles or smooth floors, and has become dangerous when they’ve got stuck on an escalator and crossing a road whilst on walks. Baby is only 15 weeks old so it is not a wear and tear issue. The size, weight and function of the rest of the pram is otherwise brilliant.
Front Wheels locking
I was very happy with this pram, but when the front wheels continually lock and go sideways so you can’t move. It became dangerous the other day as I was stuck in the middle of the road and couldn’t move due to the front wheels. I had to lift them up off the ground to move off the road just in the back wheels, with my son in the pram asleep.
I wish I knew this was such a problem before I brought this stroller.
Since there are so many bad reviews about the front wheels you would think you would have fixed this problem.
Purchased in November 2021 for $417.00.
I was pretty excited to get this pram and use it. I went out and got the capsule to fit thinking it would make life easier however the capsule gets locked and stuck on one side so makes it hard to get it out especially since the capsule itself is quite heavy I pretty much have to stand behind it to pull it out which also makes it hard to get in the car. Then the wheels... the front ones turn sideways and don’t straighten back up at first I thought it was the shopping centre floors but it pretty much does it on any surface my son is 11 weeks old...so it’s not like I’ve had it for awhile. I like to walk a lot so will probably have to purchase another pram. Honestly wish I found this page before purchasing it. Overall not impressed by it I got it on sale but still cost $420 was a big chunk of money which could have been spent elsewhere.
I wish I had seen reviews here, as Baby Bunting website only had positive reviews (and there seemed to be no option to even leave a review on their website).
I'll start with the pros. The pram itself looks nice, the grey melange looks very modern. Also it does have a great size under basket. It is also easy to assemble/dissemble.
The cons unfortunately outway the pros.
After only 3 months of use, the bassinet is sagging and the wheels are wearing away. This hasnt been regular use either, we only use it maybe once a week.

My son love the pram and it is very strong and steady. The space for storage is big and the security lock works properly. The sun shade was faulty at the first but it has been replaced. Pram size is pretty big so its quite unsuitable for crowded area/narrow gap isle
This Pram Needs To Be Recalled
I was extremely excited about this pram. But from day dot I've had trouble with the wheels. And by looking here so have many others!!
Today about to cross a busy road in town the wheels decide to lock up. By the time i was able to fix them it was no longer safe to cross! It had me thinking- what if a car was flying towards me and my baby and the pram was to lock up? Disappointed
Purchased a Steelcraft Pram based on the fact it’s a reputable brand but I’m very disappointed. The front wheels are constantly locking up making it very difficult to use. The pram is not fit for purpose and I’m very disappointed. I would not recommend This pram to friends who are Mums to be.
Pretty but frustrating
I love the idea of capsule and also pram converting from bassinet to seat. Biggest issue is the front wheels, they do not easily turn and lock up side says a lot. It’s difficult to just push baby back and forward in a straight line. I was also going down one of the ramp style escalators and when I got to bottom the wheels again had turned themselves in so trying to get off the escalator I was walking backwards to try and get off. The bassinet also tilts up and down, so if I move baby further to the back then it tilts so his head is leaning lower than rest of body.
Brought this pram for Bub when he was a newborn. Great pram in the sense that it’s light, and easy to put together. About 2-3 months into using it, I’ve noticed the front (swivel) wheels seem to “drag” on some surfaces when turning. The front wheels also seem to be loose, even though we have done everything to try tighten them.
I’ve used this pram for 6 months and it’s awful! The front wheels don’t turn properly making it hard to steer, in many opportunities I have been to wait in the middle of the road or I've pass the traffic light, because it is not allowing to move, also the zip on the hood broke, the sit makes that my baby going down. Totally disappointed I regret to buy at baby bunting on 27th of March 2022.
I thought spending a medium amount of money would get a decent pram, but the steering is terrible, the front wheels get stuck and don’t pivot. Have to manually turn the wheels out, not ideal when you try to cross a road and the wheels get stuck and you can’t move it!! To bad I cannot afford to get another pram at this point in time. Purchased August 19 and have only been using it for two months since bub was born end October.
The performance On different surfaces was easy to steer. The suspension is great and easy to fold away. The pram looks comfortable and my child was always happy sitting in the pram.
Purchased in March 2021.

Previously owned the Steelcraft agile stroller and very happy with it however baby did not like to face out. Bought the Savvi to replace Agile.
Happy with the look. Baby is comfortable in pram. Like the big basket underneath. Only used pram on the pavement and shopping centres and found the pram does not manoeuvre very well. The front wheels lock. Recently got stuck trying to cross the road on a short walk to the local shops! Many cars had to stop until I got going again- took me 3 lights! Now I do not feel comfortable/safe using pram at all.
Huge disappointment as baby likes being in it and I have spent quite a lot of money on 2 steelcraft prams in total! Have not used pram since.
Love this stroller!
Absolutely love the frames convenient quickly fold/unfold. I use with compatible capsule and am amazed at how easy it is to use.
Negative: the bassinet liner discoloured before we even used it.
Basic and faulty
The Savvy looks great but is very basic. The wheels don’t turn properly when on smooth surfaces(tiles, lino) and the clips are hard to do up. I also have returned it twice in 3 months, firstly the hood clips were incorrect and couldn’t be attached to the pram, secondly the stroller base clips wouldn’t slide easily and kept getting stuck. Baby Bunting Warner’s Bay refused a store credit but replaced the frame and hood. As I was using it in the bassinet style I wasn’t aware the clips were so flimsy and hard to do up. It’s not easy to use and I’m not happy with the product. Very disappointed with Steelcraft quality on this product.
I was really excited to use this pram, for my first baby, I love the grey colour, one of the staff suggest steelcraf saavi.
I bought this pram on 10/09/2019.From the moment I got it out of the box I have had issues with this stroller, front wheels are terrible do not pivot well and get stuck sideways a lot which makes it impossible to maneuver, wheels don’t turn properly making it hard to steer. I have used only for couple of hours but I’m done with this pram. The hood wouldn’t stay up and,the back wheels wobble.Very annoying.
Even the lock is ...

Loved this pram when I bought it because it was so practical having the all in one bassinet/stroller seat. I do love the large basket underneath but since actually using the pram I've been really disappointed. The wheels have holes in them just from walking around the block on the footpaths and the pram has only been used for 5 months. There's no way this pram will last the time I need it to. Wish the wheels were more versitle like the city mini prams.

Can I buy replacement belly/arm bar for my Steelcraft Savvi pram?
Hi BelS, thanks for your question. For spare parts, pricing and availability, please call us on 1300 303 330. Kind regards, the Steelcraft team.
I was wondering if the Savvi will convert to a bassinet and lay full flat or is it a sort of smallish incline to it (some prams claim to lay flat but have a slight recline really) ?
Hi Amithabha, thanks for your email. The Savvi is suitable for newborns with the seat transforming easily into a lay-flat Bassinet, we would recommend that you visit your local Baby Bunting and see if this product is suitable for you and please feel free to give us a call on 1300 303 330 if you would like to discuss this with us in further detail.

I just wanted to know if there is a fitted blanket for the bassinet as the lining is white and feel it will get dirty?
