While certainly not applicable to the majority, one problem a few parents encountered with the Tech Double City x3 Swivel Stroller concerns its seats which tended to sag in the middle. One mother thought of a way to fix this problem. if you’ll check, there’s a small loop between the two seats which is used to affix the carseat safety strap. According to this mom, if this feature is not in use, you can pull any strap or rope through that loop and then tie it securely to the front bar, which in turn, prevents the middle of the seat from sagging.

Secondly, some parents noticed that the stroller pulls strongly to one side, usually the right, if you’re passing through an uneven terrain with only one child inside the stroller. Again, the same mom found a way to solve this by throwing her purse or anything with a bit of weight on the empty seat or to the pouch of the back seat.


While the cons are found to be a common complaint of two or three parents against the Tech Double City x3 Swivel Stroller, it appears to be not true for all because more of the users did not encounter the said problems. These may be isolated incidents only.
