Rated 2 out of 5 by Alyssa87 Broke just over a year Later
I really liked this vacuum but I bought it Christmas 2013 and Now June 2014 it won't turn on at all I liked the suction of the vacuum but everyone is right about the hose it is too stiff and everytime you use it the vacuum falls over backwards and now my Registration is over and I'm out a vacuum :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by kickedchain specs say 12 amp infro. plate says 10 amp
Purchased at wal mart thought vac was 12 amp by specs at Bissell Web site. My model is 98n41 and on the infro plate on the vac it has 10 amp. What's the deal? Other than that very good vac.

This vacuum has great suction, but the design is poor. The hose is too stiff, doesn't stretch much, so when using, the vacuum falls over backwards frequently. I also find the cord to be too short and impractical. Lastly, I don't care for the Febreeze filter. I don't find the scent pleasant and it's too strong for my taste. I will be returning this vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dena McCune just bought this today
I had to replace a bagged vacuum because I can no longer find bags. I cannot believe how bad my last one was. I vacuumed the area rug in my living room and could not believe the dog hair that was left after using the old. I didn't understand the instructions for the febreeze filter. Was I suppose to leave the charcoal filter in there because it wouldn't close with it. This vacuum will be used on multi surfaces and in cars.

It sucks dirt up well, co complaints there. I am satisfied with the suction. I am very displeased with how cheap the machine is made. My handle is almost completely broken off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MarinersSeahawksIlse AMAZING VACUUM EXCEPT.....
Loved the idea of a retractable cord, so I bought this vacuum, and couldn't wait to use it. Amazing suction even with the attachments. The pet attachment was the best I've ever used. After emptying the canister, the plastic cracked all the way up when being reinserted. It wasn't forced, so I don't know why it would have cracked. I used duct tape on the crack, but it still spewed dust when it was switched on. I've dealt with this for 2 months and I'm going to buy a new one today. I had a Dyson prior to the Bissell and the Bissell runs circles around the Dyson. I will give 5 stars if this one doesn't break right away.

Very poor design on the handle where it attaches to the machine. Mine broke loose the third time I used it. Has good suction and love the automatic cord rewind, but would not buy another one.
