Rated 3 out of 5 by Josh in WV Vacuum works well, but I have a broken brush
I bought this item because it was a lightweight 2 in 1 and I wanted something I could use easily on the stairs, in the car along with the carpet in the home.
In terms of performance, I have no complaints regarding this product. It has worked well on carpet, rugs, ceramic tile and in my vehicles. The filter is easy to clean and the sound of this vacuum doesn't scare my dog.
I've only owned this vacuum for around 3 months, maybe 4 at the most and I usually use it once a week for as long as a charge will last. While using it today the brush broke and now the brush will not turn. The rest of the vacuum still works fine. After contacting customer service, I was informed that the brush is considered a wear and tear item and therefore not covered under the 1 year limited warranty. I understand that the brush is a wear and tear item, but a wear and tear item shouldn't break or even wear out in 3 to 4 months.
I will go ahead and order the replacement brush but I think that Bissell should stand behind their product given the short time frame I've owned the vacuum. Given this scenario, that is why I'm only giving a 3 star review. Based on performance, the vacuum has performed at a 4 to 5 star level.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lia Good for cleaning, not very sturdy
I have a small dog that sheds a lot, we have mostly laminate flooring and two large area rugs. The Bissell Bolt does a good job picking up all the hair my dog sheds on both the floor and rugs. I bought this product November 2014 and have already had two issues with it breaking. The first time occurred within the first month, one of the small wheels popped off and I couldn't find it to replace it so the vacuum would not roll as easily as it should. The second time the swivel head broke apart to the point that it detaches and makes it impossible to use. Both times however, the Bissel 1 year warranty was in effect and they sent me the replacement parts for free. For this reason I give the vacuum 4 stars as this company has great customer service and overall the vacuum is easy to handle and does the job. Many reviews complained about the charge time, I have a 1200 sq ft. townhouse and I have more than enough charge to do a quick run through all the rooms and bathrooms.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ali14 Great vacuum!
I have gone through 3-4 different cordless vacuums in the last 8 years. I purchased this one because the advertisement said it would hold 20 minutes. All others did not hold battery that long. Well, I am happy with the results. It holds the battery long enough to go through my three-bedroom house. I do not have any carpeting. If your are looking for a carpet vacuum, this is not the one. I have cats and I use it every day. I was thinking about buying another one and storing it just in case the manufacturer discontinues this model.

This is our second bissell stick vacuum. The first one stopped working after 1 yr. My husband suggested we try a different brand, but this was the only brand available at my local store, so I decided to give it one last shot. Big mistake. It's only been about a month and it is so noisy. We tried cleaning the roller out and everything but it's still a lot louder then it was when we first bought it a month ago.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Maggie5144 Does not hold a charge
I have had this cordless vacuum for 3 months now. Each and every time the vacuum has a green light indicating that it is charged, the vacuum lasts less than 2 minutes and has to be plugged in again. I then have to plug it in and charge it for another 2 days to get a 5 minute vacuum time out of it.
Very disappointed. Do not waste any money on this product.

Returned product. We could not get the battery to charge.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GJ Love It!!!!!
I am so pleased with this product, I have mostly wood floors and a cocker spaniel that sheds daily, I no longer have to use my regular vacuum more than once a week, this cordless vacuum does a great job quickly!!!
I don't use it on carpet, but it does a good job on small area rugs.
I empty the dust cup after each use, it is easy to remove and clean.
I have only had it for about a month and use it everyday, so far I am very pleased and would not hesitate to recommend it!!!

A week ago I purchased the Bissell Bolt Pet 2 in 1. The suction is terrible on the carpet.; when used on hard floors it just throws the debris all over! When I tried to use just the hand held part it won't pick up I have cleaned the filters and ensured there were no clogs. Very disappointed.

I purchased because of dog hair, and so far I am very pleased with this vacuum! It is light weight, super easy to use, and gets the job done!
Rated 1 out of 5 by mech tech Strong suction but....
The bolt has a strong suction; however, the strong suction pulls fine dust through the filter. This may cause a sooner problem with the electric motor in the future. Also, the long tube that delivers debris to the dust chamber is too small and too long. Pet hair plugged between the tub outlet and the tiny filter, not allowing the small debris camber to fill. The collapsible handle is just something else to brake.

Great design, good suction, easy to clean. Tank fills up really fast, battery doesn't last long.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nell's family BOLT XRT PET 2-in-1 14.4V great for small household with dog!
Love it! It is great for quick vacuum of whole house (1350 sq feet) or for vacuuming up small messes without having to bend over. The detachable small vacuum is great for vacuuming up hair on the counter in bathroom.
