The Dyson brand has become a breakout hit in the vacuum industry.  When James Dyson began showing up in commercials with his new invention, we all couldn't help believe the stoic and measured man who said his vacuums would never lose suction. Since then Dyson vacuums have become as common inside the house as F-150s are in the garage. And since the dust and dirt we track around inside the home can be immediately transferred to the car, Dyson is introducing the DC14 Drive, a version of its midrange DC14 line of vacuums that includes three special wand attachments designed specifically to clean your car. The Car Turbine Head has a rotating brush to clean upholstery; the Flexi Crevice Tool extends and flexes to reach tight spaces under seats and the Stiff Bristle Brush works out dirt from deep carpet. The DC14 Drive will be available exclusively at Target stores in June for $459.99, just in time for Father's Day (June 18th).

      I work for Dyson and have to say it feels really good to finally work for a company where the product is what it claims to be.....The vacuum may be a little costly for some....But do you really think that Dyson could have made it in the American market against so many more familier household brands and continue to grow and sell if it didn't do what it claims to do????? Really, think about it they wouldn't still be going strong and becoming a household name also.

      Great. Well if Dyson is reading then why don't you bring one of your great canister vacuums to the US market. You know not everybody wants to use a friggen upright. Believe it or not some houses in the US actually have wood floors and not wall to wall carpet. And guess what - you can do your car with a canister vacuum without looking like the express train to geeksville.

      How about the DC08 or DC11 in the US? Or re-release the DC02. At least we used to be able to get a clone from phantom...

      How much did dyson pay autoblog to run this ad er story I mean?

      didn't consumer reports say dysons were inferior to $90 hoover vacs?

      That sucks.

      Had to say it.

      So...those of us that already own a DC14 of another variety (wife and I have the purple "animal" to contend with our four dogs)...can we just buy the attachments?

      Ryan, I'm not spending $400 just to vacuum a $20k car when I can spend $20 to get it washed and detailed by illegal immigrants and ex-cons at the local auto wash.

      And those with $100k vehicles rarely vacuum their own cars. They pay other people to do it too.

      Seriously, Dyson should partner with Mercedes. Then we could have the DCx14.

      #1, I did just that this past weekend! Not with that specific model, but a Dyson.

      Dysons are terrific vacuums. I've never had a vacuum suck so much in my life. To the degree that its almost too much suction for the rugs I have in my house. It also did a terrific job with the interior of the car. Definately worth every cent you pay for them.

      Oh look, a commercial.

      For those of you who think $400 for a plastic suction device is a lot... you have not seen the TriStar.

      They won't tell you a price on the web site, for good reason, it will set you back is nearly $1200 from a sales rep.

      I for one am greatful for the review. I was looking to get a dyson and was compairing models and came up with this site. I will gladly spend the extra $30 to have the car attachments. I for one clean my 35k car and my hubby 25k car myself. Although the few feet I vacuum in our cars once every 3 months is not a big factor in my purchess. I mean I vacuume my 3000sf house every couple days that the main reason I am buying the vacuum.

      Now we're discussing Dysons?
      It's making me feel VACUOUS.

      Talk about turning old stereotypes upside down...give a man a vacuum for father's day!

      Hah!

      I think we are headed for a men's rights movement in the future....
