The Chicco Bravo has been praised for its high-quality design by most parents and many have stated they would not only recommend the product but repurchase it for themselves in the future. Some parents have, however, found problems with stroller components like the wheel axles.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Caring for your Bravo Stroller
The fabrics on this stroller are hand wash only, to be cleaned using cold water and left to air dry. The plastic and metal parts can be wiped clean with a soft damp cloth but make sure they are towel-dried to avoid rust formation.
Maintain the proper function of your stroller by lubricating moving parts as needed with a light silicone-based lubricant. Be sure to check and clean the wheels regularly and remove any dust dirt or sand build-up from the movable plastic parts along with the metal frame. Store out of direct sunlight to avoid fading of the fabrics.
Caring for your KeyFit Infant Car Seat
The fabrics of the car seat can be removed and machine washed on a cool and delicate cycle, again allowing to air dry. The hardware can be sponged clean using a mild soap and warm water, just be sure to towel dry after. The harness should not be machine washed, instead, sponge clean it using warm water and mild soap, then let it completely air dry before use.
It is important that you do not use bleach, solvents, or any other household cleaners when cleaning your travel system as this may weaken the plastics and straps. Also never submerge the straps completely in water.
