Rated 2 out of 5 by Tbone Suction hose does not stay in
The vacuum cleans very well, however it has one fatal flaw. The suction hose does not stay in the hose base. It slips out every few seconds. This is rather frustrating. I have found a workaround of routing the hose under the wand extension holder, but this is not the intended route of the hose.
I have seen so many positive reviews for this vacuum, so I am wondering if there is some recent production issue with the diameter of the hose cuff. There is one other review on a retail site that mentions the same issue and it was posted 2 days ago.
I would love for this problem to be solved since it actually cleans so well, but because of the hose issue I will likely return this vacuum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bissell hater Worst Vacuum I every bought
Had it around 3 or 4 years and now the motor just quite working. It is extremely noisy to run. The power switch is in the wrong place not on the handle where it can easily be switched off if something gets caught in it. Hose is too short that it pulls the vacuum over when you are trying to use it. It was the worst vacuum cleaner I ever used in my life.

I LOVE our new vacuum! I love that we can clean the green filter as well as the clear canister! It is such a great vacuum! I am so pleased that my Fiancé and I decided on this particular vacuum! Thank you for the great product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mike1250 Not worth the money
I bought this PowerGlide Pet Vacuum 1044 four months ago and I am very disappointed. I had a Bissell before and it did okay and lasted me a few years. Since I couldn't afford a more expensive brand, I thought that another Bissell would be worth the money. You would think that Bissell would improve their products as years go by, but that is not the case with this one. First, it is poorly designed. When you put the handle in the fully reclined position to vacuum under furniture, that bracket on the back of the machine that holds the extension wand catches on the carpet. An unbelievable design flaw! Second, the hose is too short. If you stretch it too far, the vacuum falls over. Third, there is only one extension wand and it's also too short making this a poor machine for vacuuming curtains. Fourth, whenever the left side of the machine bumps against furniture, the HEPA filter and cover fall off and I have to shut off the machine and replace them. Overall, a very, very poorly designed machine and not worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Merry Maid What a difference!
When the sweeper I inherited from my mother-in-law finally died I purchased this BISSELL and am very satisfied. I love the bagless feature and the Fabreeze filter! I can't believe how much dirt I am getting out of my carpets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aml2121 OUT PERFORMED THE SHARK!!! GREAT VACUUM
When I moved into my house I spent over 3,000 for a high quality high plush carpet. Within 8 months it started to look matted and dirty. I was using the Shark vacuum and vacuuming at least 4-5 times a week because I have two dogs. I actually had the guy who installed the carpet come look at it because I truly thought it was the quality of the carpet. He suggested I buy a height adjustment vacuum. After reading reviews bought this one and after the FIRST TIME using it my carpet looked refreshed. This vacuum is great and I am going to sell my Shark!

Well, I didn't know how terribly my vacuum cleaner worked until I tried this! Easy to put together, easy to push, not too loud...all the features work! The only con is that the Febreeze filter is a little too stinky for me. Going to look into a non-scent or at least something not so raspberry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaiSeto22 SIMPLY THE BEST
This is simply the best vacuum I have ever used and I am now a senior citizen with two dogs and raising my grandson,so you can just imagine all the dirt and dog hair...plus I have 5 finches who's seeds and feathers add even more challenges in keeping a house clean!! It is not too heavy,strong suction, long cord, excellent functioning tools, easy to empty dirt cup, and I love the Fabreze filter which makes everyting smell so fresh and pleasant. Last but not least, the "Price is Right"!!!
