What experts liked
The FastAction Fold stroller feels notably sturdy, responsive and easy to maneuver even on rougher surfaces. Folding and unfolding are very easy, if made a tad awkward by the size of the stroller, and can be done with one hand. Self-stands when folded. The front swivel lock is easy to operate. Harness adjustment is smooth and easy. The large canopy operates smoothly. The storage basket is large, with good access, and there are trays for parent and child. Air-filled tires may give smoother ride, but add a maintenance chore. Attaching the car seat could not be easier, just line it up and click it into place; no adapters needed.
- Consumer Reports
The buckle is easy to work and secure enough that you truly won’t have to worry about it breaking or your child undoing it by himself or herself. Side mesh panels allow for some air circulation throughout the seat.

What I truly do love about the FastAction Fold® are the two trays that come with it. On as a belly tray with two cup holders and a snack tray.
- Experienced Mommy
The one-hand fold system is particularly beneficial for mothers who are always on the go, and the air filled rubber tiles are specifically designed to offer you extra suspension for a very smooth ride regardless of the quality of the terrain.
- Baby Been
One of the things that you will like about this model is that it is easy to fold. No longer do you need to use a lot of much force just to fold and put it inside your car. In fact, the one-hand fold feature only takes a second.
- My Travel Strollers
The riding experience is so smooth, thanks to the air-filled rubber wheels that act like real car suspension. Regardless of the terrain in which you’re pushing graco fast action fold jogger, your little one will always enjoy a smooth ride.

What experts didn't like
Heavy and large, making it somewhat awkward to open and close (still very easy, but awkward). Although the stroller is securely open – we verified this - there is no audible "click" when it locks into the open position. Though the backrest adjustment is easy, the handlebar gets in the way. As with other harnesses of similar design, the shoulder strap clips slipped off the corresponding waist belt pieces occasionally and had to be slipped back on before buckling the restraint. This is more of a nuisance than a problem. The parent's console includes a cell phone holder, but testers' phones (iPhone 6, iPhone 7 Plus) were much too big to fit in either the top or inside the compartment. The seat fabric/cover is not removable, and can spot-cleaned only, per manufacturer's instructions. Although the stroller can be used for jogging, you should never jog with a baby in the attached car seat. We recommend waiting until your baby is 12 months before allowing him to ride while you jog; check with your pediatrician before doing so.
- Consumer Reports
The first is that the system can be a bit bulky and heavy, especially for parents who are of small statures.

The only issue that we ever faced was unlatching the car seat. This happened sometime after we had started using it. I remember giving it a shove sometimes so it gets unstuck. You will need both your hands to unlatch the car seat.
- Experienced Mommy
For instance, many have complained about the fact that the jogger is heavy, massive and bulky overall, which can be particularly difficult to manage by short parents.
- Baby Been
Although it is lightweight, the whole stroller has large wheels that make it bulky and difficult to fit inside a small compartment or car. The seat does not recline to flat so that it will be a little inconvenient to change baby diapers.
- My Travel Strollers
However, the downside is, if you’re shorter than 5.4”, then you will strain when pushing or jogging with this baby stroller in front of you.
- My Umbrella Stroller
