You better off buying a handheld dyson or similar and putting it in the stow n go area. You’d be money ahead. You could even buy the small portable ridgid and fit it in the stow n go. The money and time put into fitting a vacuum you could put to a vacuum that isn’t tied down to the vehicle. I ordered our van with a spare tire - if I’m up poo creek with a flat the vacuum isn’t going to get me home
Has anyone had any luck adding a vacuum in the pacific if it didn’t come with one? Thinking about hunting down the panels and vacuum from a salvage yard or eBay but if it not work I’d like to know ahead of time thanks
Lol, great minds think alike - I’m an avid woot shopper. I’ve actually been following them from the early days before amazon, when they actually only had just one item for the deal of the day and if it sold out then that’s was it until the next day - I really liked that, woot is still good but I liked the way it was before amazon bought them out. I’ve purchased 5 dyson a over the years not only for myself but for weddings gifts and Christmas gifts. Dyson refurbs are legit and 100% recommend them.I have the vacuum, and I took it out once to try it. It kinda sorta works. Don't expect it to pick up beach sand. I use my handheld Dyson all the time. Much better at cleaning, and MUCH LESS fuss to use. You can often get like new refurbs on Woot.com for less than $200.
My wife loves the idea of a built-in vacuum, but I've had a heck of a time trying to find a Limited that doesn't have the vacuum deleted, but still has the options and colors we want (uConnect theater, Advanced Safety Group, and light colored seats w/red, molten silver, or tusk/luxury white exterior). It seems like maybe 19 out of 20 Limited have the vacuum deleted. And if I throw the 8th seat option into the mix, it's literally impossible. So maybe using a portable vac, as suggested above, is the solution.
On that note, can anybody recommend a specific model of portable vac that fits in the stow-n-go well, and is capable enough to do a good job?
Forgot to mention that we're looking to buy a low-mile used 2018-2019. It seems like we can save close to $10-15k going that route, but of course finding the perfect van is a challenge.Why don’t you simply order a car to your specifications. Email 50-100 of dealerships and and get quotes.
Any of the portable vacs will fit in the stow’n go.
I see. But you can save 8-10k in sticker price from some dealerships too if buying new. All the best.
You are right, it'll be hard to find a new Limited at that price, but you can be pretty close with a Touring L+ with all the options you want. Are you wanting a Limited only (eg: for the Vacuum, and other features), or are you flexible to TL+?I would love to buy new, but I also want to be responsible. Good, well-optioned, low-mileage Limited's can be found in the $29,000-$32,000 range. I'm not sure how close I could get to that with a brand new car. Ideally we want a Limited with the uTheater, Advanced Safety, and 8th seat, but it seems like loaded Limited's are north of $40k new.
