Summary: I love this vacuum! I have owned it over a year and it still works great! The suction is fabulous. I believe it cleans my carpets better than they have ever been cleaned. I love the red light dirt indicator. When it goes on, I pause and let it suck all the dirt out of it. You can turn this feature off, but I love it. The self propelling is nice, but I've only used it twice, as I don't need it....YET. Vacuuming is good exercise.
Summary: My daughter gave mine to me and it is like a dream. I have arthritis pretty bad, one knee replacement and one shoulder replacement. It doesn't bother me using this - practically does the vacuuming for me! Anyone would be happy to vacuum with this - regardless of age. I'll be 69 Sunday so don't hesitate buying this! You will enjoy vacuuming once again.
Summary: I am very satisfied with my purchase. Highly rated by Consummers Reports, the Hoover wind tunnel gives all it advertises. Easy assembly. Easy to Use and maintain. One feature included I didn't realize I was getting is a red light that shows where extremely dirty parts of the rug are and it turns green when they it is clean.
Summary: VERY DISPPOINTED, WE HAD IT SHIPPED TO OUR HOUSE, WHEN WE TOOK IT OUT OF THE BOX & TRIED IT IT DID NOT SELF-PROPEL. CALLED THE TELEPHONE NUMBER ON THE BOX, WAS GIVEN THE OPTION OF RETURNING IT TO A STORE OR TAKING IT TO AN AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER. TOOK IT TO THE REPAIR CENTER AND WAS TOLD THE SELF-PROPEL BELT WAS BROKEN. ALSO TOLD BELTS AREN'T COVERED BY WARRANTY. SO WE HAD TO PAY FOR THE BROKEN BELT TO BE REPLACED BEFORE WE EVER GOT TO USE IT.
