I love this vacuum, A LOT. I bought two different vacuums from two competitors and I hated them! I don't know why I tried getting a non-Bissell vacuum! The suction on this vacuum is AMAZING. Sometimes, it's a little too strong, like when I am vacuuming rugs, but luckily, there is an option to turn off the brushes. This vacuum picks up like no other, the dirt cup is always so full. I love the attachments, and it works great for cleaning the car. The hose plus the tube attachments reach VERY far and I don't have to carry it up the stairs, it reaches up 10 steps easily, so I love that! The only thing that I don't like, and it's definitely not a deal breaker, but I hate how they have the hose on this vacuum. It's always coming off, but again not a deal breaker. I love how easily I can detach the hose. It's a little on the heavy side but oh well, it's totally worth it. My mom borrowed it and it picked up better than the vacuum she has now so she went and bought it. Definitely recommend it!
