Liked it at first, good suction. Then headlight went out 1st month-no big deal-don't use it. Then beater motor went out at 4 months-had it and headlight repaired under warranty-headlight went out 1st week after repair. Canister tips over, hose too short for normal vacuum strokes, wheels do not roll on carpet easily, hose contact pins no longer make constant contact at any connection, telescoping wand no longer stops as rubber washer moves up and down and won't hold it in place, wand no longer removable from brush motor attachment as "step-on" release latch broken inside, filter requires frequent cleaning and has lost suction with time even with regular maintenance. Hoover/Maytag would not do anything about this 18-month-old vacuum which still looks relatively new. I am VERY disappointed in this product. I need to use it several times a week on a 3500 sq.ft home with one dog and 5 household members. It was expensive and the "automatic floor/carpet height adjustment" does not exist. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. You will be disappointed after a few months unless you only use it once a week and have little/no incoming "dirt".
