Question: I am looking for a vacuum cleaner to use for my cars. Is this a good vacuum cleaner for cars?
Answer: No the suction on it is horrible the eureka is a way better vacuum cleaner.
Question: The brushes don’t move while vacuuming, it is only the suction in the middle area that works. Is it a defect or they are not supposed to move?
Answer: They are not suppose to move. It is made for quick pickups and for small spaces. The suction is quite good so it will do an adequate job on a small carpet area. If you want a beater bar brush attachment you would probably have to go much higher in price.
