A WINNER !!
I just vacuumed both the 'K and Z (Datsun) with the Shark in <15 minutes and it did a perfect job. It picked up every piece of hair, lint and fuzz without any problem, and without alot of effort. The magic, at least as far as cleaning low pile carpet (i.e., a car), is all in that rotating brush head.
Without the head, the Shark does a good job of picking up anything that isn't entangled in the carpet's fibers (much better than the 12V Black & Decker I've been using!). But, for the kinda stuff that we usually end up having to pluck out by hand (after 30 minutes of vacuuming the same spot--to no avail!), plugging-in the head is a virtual game-changer. Almost everything came up quick and easy, and those few stubborn leftover bits surrendered with a coupla repeat swipes (but, really, no more than a couple!). All in all, because it lacks the revolving brush, the Shark's more effective than the big canister vacuum at the car wash.
Of course, I haven't used it enough to gage how long it'll run on a full charge (I've only been charging it for ~12 (of the 20+) hours, which Shark recommends prior to initial use). But, so far, so good.
Just FYI: Shark's got a larger 18V cordless that might be worth checking out, too. But I don't know if it has the revolving brush? If it doesn't this's definitely the vacuum for cars.
