In the 2 years we've had our Hoover Wind Tunnel Vacuum, it has broke 4 times. 3 times it has been the belt and one time, the self propulsion function stopped working.
If you're thinking of buying this thing, don't.
It is absolute junk. Hoover offered to send me a $67.00 vaccum as a replacement if I sent them my Wind Tunnel since it was off warranty. It would cost almost that much to ship the thing to them. What a joke.
No more Hoover vacuums for me. The last Hoover I had lasted 9 years.
This thing can't make it more than a couple of months without shreading a belt.
