    My old car vacuum cleaner is shot (and I never liked it much anyway); time for a new one. The beast's interior floors don't get all that dirty due to my WeatherTech, but the narrow areas around the seats seem to accumulate dirt.

    Any suggestions? Favorite car vac?

    Dont let small size fool you 1 peak h.p. motor. That can br replaced. I cut one filter so I can open clean, then have 1 fine and 1 heppa around. Inside a car is easy due to size.

    Google how many people use it for different purpses. Mine's 10 years old still running strong.

    My W/D vac from home depot works good. I just recently bought a Shark for my house and love it. They make some really good vacs that can be used on cars...I think.

    Proven for over 10 years. Commercial / industrial use design my field engineers this is all they carry.

    Easy to take inside cars. Multiple uses.

    I cut one filter (simple) then duc tape it at center so I can clean and re use. Like better than vacn blow Jr had 1 sold it. Preferred separates for vac then blow. Preferred not worrying about roller, bulk, having outside car with hoses dangling in and scratching.

    It's my go too for cars and a ton of other uses (check reviews yourself and see...)

    You can't kill them and if you do all parts available motor is super strong.

    Yes - it works very well when drying the car.

    I got mine on Craigslist. I traded it for a bra for a 1990 VW Jetta that I found. I think they got the indoor/outdoor vac from Home Depot. It works really good, has lots of attachments and I use it 2x a week and have had it quite a while. I don't have one that plugs into the car though. I tried the charging ones that hang up and it never seems to have enough suction to get all the dust particles out.
