pretty sure that I've read that these buggies have habit of nearly tipping your baby out when turning and the front wheel catches on something

I have heard the same thing- not recommended although (hence) good price..!

I have done a wee search online and found that there are mixed reviews on this (looked on reviewcentre site), some saying its dangerous and others saying how good it is and excellent value for money. I think any light weight buggy/stroller can be hazardous if left unsupervised or the wheels can catch on things?

It appears to be a good price for the buggy anyways so you just have to make your own choice on wether it's the buggy for you or not
Saying that i had a mamas and papas buggy and it was so poor i regretted ever buying it.

Sure I agree, but this one seems to be much more dangerous than others.. So its important to know that before you buy and keep this good price as a second factor, for me safety is first.. Honestly, otherwise I would buy one myslef..!
Sorry for this emeraldcity, apart from that I know its a very good deal...!

"Hi all,
I am writing this review to let you know how dangerous this buggy is. I recently purchased one and in the 4 days i used it for my son was nearly face first on the pavement 4 times!! It really is that bad!! It got to the stage i was a nervous wreck using it!
What happens is, if the buggy hits even a small bump the front wheel stops dead resulting in the buggy and yourself flying forwards, like i said my son was inches from the ground,but luckily i managed to pull it back and that is hard enough! can you imagine if he'd actually hit the ground and I'd landed on top of the buggy?! It doesn't bare thinking about. Google this pushchair and see for yourself, especially reviewcentre, of course some people are going to love this buggy, but the majority have all found the same as me and warn against getting one.
I bought this pushchair off eBay and i cannot fault the seller in taking it back. I also contacted consumer direct and they said it had serious safety issues and not fit for purpose, they are now in touch with trading standards about this issue, i would like to see britax remove the verve from sale or modify it in someway that makes it safer to use. To me the centre of gravity is all wrong, all the weight is at the front of the buggy thats why it tips forwards so easily.
All i can say is, please be carefull if you do really want one of these, but to me they are accidents waiting to happen!!
If you need to know anything more, please get in touch

P.S i have now heard back from trading standards, and they have had lots of concerns raised with this buggy, britax are now thinking of discontinuing the britax verve!! well done britax!"

Also reviewcentre its only 1.7/5 out of 29 reviews- that is not good enough..

I have this pram, And the only times i find it does this is when you are pushing down and over on to it. And i havent found it tips more like just stops and you then lift it slightly.

Nice and light weight and the look good, the only thing that could be better is more recline. Also not suitable for new borns

So you would recommend it then or rather not? Price is good but safety is my concern...!

voted hot as a good price.

but beware it TIPS big time!
oh yeah, i had it in 2006, looks funky and not huge so is good. but i remeber i had some shopping at the back or something and baby in car seat attached to pushchair and the whole thing fell in boots! was so scary and embarrasing!
Not such a bargain anymore if puts my child at risk!

Still 7 available, just my link isn't working (_;)

Thanks for adding this info bogiboss, always a good idea to check out other peoples reviews before purchasing something. I personally would never buy a 3 wheel buggy as i think they all look very unstable and not all that nice looking in my opinion but spotted this deal and thought it was a good price. There do however seem to be a large number of people who would agree this buggy is dangerous (_;) and not so many who think it's a good buggy, so not so sure it's that great a deal now!

I wouldnt for a baby but for a toddler yes
Please do not buy this, it really does tip on every curb. My daughter ended up face down, I would never use it again.
