A few things I love about this vacuum: the cord is very long. I have a mini van and can reach the back to vacuum. I also love that the vacuum is adjustable. This comes with a bag to hold the vacuum and the adapters.
This vacuum is great for us because we have 3 kids and are in the car a lot. When they make a mess, I can vacuum it up right away rather than having to get to a car wash to vacuum and pay money to use it each time. This is also great for vacuuming out carseats (which I get to do in a daily basis). This vacuum has a pretty good suction, but it's not as powerful as a shop vac or the car wash vacuums. I've used a few different car vacs and this one has the best auction I've been able to find. Also, you want to get a vacuum with a cord because the ones that are wireless die so fast.
Overall, great vacuum and we have no complaints thus far. Still in love with it.

The pivoting arm also has a smaller arm that extends out from the end if you choose to use it for the extra reach. While I was able to get the arm down next to the seats, it couldn't go all the way down, which is what I will use the hose attatchment for. The arm did excel at getting in between the rear seats as I could hold the unit at such an agle as to easily reach deep in between the seat and back cushion to get all the crumbs that get pushed there over time.
I haven't used the rounded brush yet, however the small brush that fits onto the very end of the pivot arm extender is very useful in that it helps agitate the debris in the carpet fibers giving a much better pick-up than using the arm alone. The hose I have used once, and it works fine, however I found that I lost a bit of suction with it attatched.
Emptying the unit is a breeze. You just flip up the lid, and dump it right into say, a plastic bag that you keep nearby as I did. The cord which plugs into a cigarette lighter wraps around the unit and has a clip on the end to keep it inplace. The 16 ft cord length is actually a very beneficial feature as I was easily able to reach the back of the car to vacuum the trunk. I like the fact that it's corded also, because it seems to me that the cordless models would have less power to begin with, and that power would decrease as it's in use; as well as the fact that you can only use them for a limited time before the need to recharge them. No such issues with a corded vac such as this PAV.
You also receive a neat carrying case that is roomy enough to fit the vac and all attatcments inside without having to cram them or figure out the secret to making them fit back in like some other items that come with cases often do.
There is no way to plug it in the home, and though I do see adapters that are marketed to use with this, the reviews on many of them say that they are not strong enough to power the vac. Originally, that was my plan, but I've since decided to just buy something else small messes in the home, ie a mini 2hp shop-vac.I will also post some pictures of the unit/accessories above as well.
**Update**7/27/11-- I found another way to clean deep along both sides of the bucket seats up front- I went to WalMart to purchase a micro tools kitSHOP VAC MICRO-CLEANING that is actually for a shop vac that Shop-Vac 5895100 2.0-Peak Horsepower AllAround EZ Series Wet/Dry Vacuum, 1.5-Gallon I also just purchased-and sure enough, the attatchments fit on the Black & Decker too, as they're for any 1.25in hose. I also used the mini brushes to get into the vents and other tight spaces throughout the car. This discovery makes the Auto Vac even more useful.The kit is available on Amazon, but I checked Walmart online first, and found them in stock, as another reviewer said they were cheaper there. (If you do go to get the micro tools- they're in the tools dept. by the shop vacs- not the vacuum aisle; or so they were in my area)
The suction from this vacuum is good and can tackle most most vehicles. It comes with attachments if you need to use a brush or you can extract the front portion if you need more length and a narrower suction. You can also adjust the suction portion to various angles. Throwing away the dirt is simple but don't forget to clean the filter to get the most suction out of the vacuum. It folds down into a manageable size and comes with it's own pouch that holds all it's accessories too!
One thing I would like to see is a built in adapter so you can plug into a wall in case you need to use it indoors
