Weighing in at less than 3lbs, the Metro and Metro 500 are both easy to use and easy to carry. Each includes an array of attachment tools designed to get the deepest crevices dirt free.

I used the Metropolitan 500 vacuum for the first time today and am very impressed with the suction and efficacy of this little tike. For its size I've not seen a comparable car vacuum to date. I like the ease of use and its easy to get into tight spots. I have ordered the 3 foot hose for the vacuum as it gets a bit heavy and unwieldy in some areas of use. Overall I am impressed and pleased that I came across this ad in Panorama Magazine (PCA Club magazine).

It suits the purpose. The sucion was not as strong as I woul dhave liked but it seems to do the trick. It also didn't have a thin enough attachment that fits in the areas between the seats where you need the most attention. Overall, happy with the look, cost, and function.

I like the vac but , there is a few things I would have liked seen added;another handle of sorts.I have to put my other hand somewhere in the back of the machine to even the weight Leaving just the one hand on the top there just enough weight that makes it hard to control. If you come up with another idea let me know!!I also think it cold be the handle it may be too thin.In my opinion I don't think a women could handle it. thank you donald

Overall, this vac works pretty well. Suction is adequate for the job. Nothing spectacular. The on-off switch is in an awkward place. It should be at the front where you can reach it with the same hand you are vacuuming with.

I wish, I now ordered the rechargeable battery operated one for my Ford Escape instead of the ac plug type. It has so much power that it is too powerful for my ac plugin in my vehicle. I now have to run a extension cord to my car from the house, kinda a drag.

My sister, who is in her sixties and has shoulder problems, bought her first brand new vehicle this year. It is a crossover model so it is big inside and has black carpeting. She wanted to be able to keep the interior clean on her own so I started the on-line search to find her a hand-held vacuum for her birthday. It was a really easy search once I fine-tuned what she needed. Great power, a plug-in with a long hose attachment and as little weight as possible with a sturdy body. Once I hit the Auto Anything website my search immediately took me to the Metropolitan 500. I didn't want to pay for an extra set of accessories to get the hose so the folks at Auto Anything gave me the number for the Metropolitan distributor and I bought a 3-foot hose to use with the attachments that were included in the Met 500's price. Customer service, shipping and answers to my questions were all spot on. Previous reviews mentioned a problem with accessories slipping off, that only happens if you don't slide it on and twist it a bit and then they all fit very snugly. She loves it, it is light-weight enough for her to use and she says the power/suction is more than she thought any hand-held could provide. Now my 84-year old Mom uses it in their home for all kinds of cleaning and raves about the Metropolitan 500. My sister and Mom are thrilled and I get kudos for a perfect birthday gift! Diane 10/1/11

Do you think I get a flex hose(around 3 feet long) with this set? If so, about how much would it be?

I am wondering what the dimensions of the portable vaccum are. I travel for snowboarding, and my jackets, pants, gloves, take up alot of room, so I am looking for a small light portable/rechargeable vaccum to work with storage bag systems which suck the air out and make the clothing smaller. I will be traveling so the lighter the better. Thanks Nicolas
