    MC-UG471 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent suction, terrible hose. We have not had this vacuum for two years yet, but the hose is already separating from itself making it unusable, both at the port and by the wand. It's a shame, because the vacuum itself is quite powerful with excellent suction. Sadly, the hose is clearly not up to daily use.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Vacuum Cleaner bags made by Panasonic! I bought this vacuum cleaner in 2016. They are still selling it at this website. What they are not selling is vacuum cleaner bags. I don't want some other company's bags for my vacuum. I want the bags to be from Panasonic. They sell bags for other vacuums but not this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vacuum Love the suction power, and retractable cord. Very easy to use to clean floors. I don't like using the hose and attachments much, but that kind of gets into the canister vac vs upright debate. This vacuum is a very convenient upright.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from mcug471 Very dependable I have gone through many vacuums and this one has lasted the best. Lots of suction and cleans well. Bags are easily available on line. My daughter just bought one she liked ours so much.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value for the price I've only had these Panasonic vacuums and won't buy another brand soley for the QuickDraw feature. This is my third one. The price was great and overall this one is as expected except for the body casing. It is the cheapest looking flimsy plastic, I was actually shocked when I opened the box. My other two had much harder thicker plastic bodies. Besides that disappointment, all the other features work good and the suction is as good as my other vacuums, so overall I'm happy with this purchase.

    Owner's Manuals
    • Why is there no more suction from my vacuum?
      Check the following:
      1. Ensure that the dust bin is not clogged or full. If so clear the clogged area or empty the bin.
      2. Check the hose for damage or holes. Replace the hose if needed.
      3. Ensure that the hose is inserted fully.
      4. Ensure that the filters are clean.
