The Bissell Garage Pro 18P03 is a car vacuum that you can mount to the wall of your garage. It isn’t a particularly large vacuum, but it’s large enough that it can hold quite a bit of material, and it offers a tremendous amount of vacuuming power.

Along with that, it’s also a wet/dry vacuum, which means that it can vacuum up dry material, such as dirt and dust, as well as wet material, such as water and other spilled liquids.

When you first take this car vacuum out of the box, you’ll notice that it weighs around thirty-three-pounds, and that Bissell has included a variety of different tools and components. While the vacuum cleaner is heavy, it’s easy for you to set the vacuum up, because Bissell includes all of the tools and components that you need to do that.

Once the central vacuum has been mounted to the wall and is plugged in, you can begin using it. When you are using this vacuum cleaner, you’ll be relying on the main hose that connects to the vacuum cleaner. This main hose is a total of thirty-two-feet long, which is very long.

The length of this hose makes it easy for you to reach all of the different spaces and areas that are in your garage, as well as spaces and areas that are within your car and on your driveway. But, in order for you to make use of the suction power that this car vacuum provides, you’ll need to use the attachments that Bissell has provided.

On the front of this hose, there is a space that allows you to attach different tools and attachments. Each one of the tools and attachments that Bissell has provided enhance the vacuuming capabilities that you have access to, while also making it easier to vacuum on certain kinds of surfaces and in certain kinds of spaces.

Some of the most important tools and attachments that Bissell has included are things like the floor head, a dusting brush, and the crevice tool. These are basic tools that most vacuum cleaners come with, but they make the entire vacuuming process much easier than it would be without them.

With the floor head, you are able to vacuum the floors of your garage. This floor head allows you to remove the dirt, dust, and debris that is on your floors. But, along with that, it can also remove things like water and other liquids, since this is a wet/dry vacuum. Although, for vacuuming up large quantities of those materials, it’s best to use the main nozzle.

Using the dusting brush, you can brush off and remove dust from the various surfaces and spaces that are in your garage. What is really nice about this dusting brush, as well, is the fact that it’s designed to be used in your car, as well, so you can use the tool to remove dust from the interior of your car.

Finally, with the crevice tool, you can remove dirt, dust, debris, and liquids from tight and narrow crevices, nooks, and crannies. There are, of course, other tools that Bissell has included.

Each one of the tools that Bissell has included are well-designed, very durable, and aid in making the vacuuming process significantly easier.

Of course, without the proper suction power, these tools wouldn’t be of much use. Fortunately, though, this vacuum cleaner uses a 12 Amp motor, and this motor produces a tremendous amount of suction power, which allows you to vacuum up just about anything.

When you are vacuuming, everything that’s sucked into the vacuum cleaner flows into a 4-Gallon tank, which can hold dry material and wet material. When you are finished using this vacuum cleaner and would like to dispose of the dirt tank’s contents, you can do so easily, as the filtration systems sorts all of the materials.


In the end, if you are looking for a powerful, efficient, and easy-to-use car vacuum, you can’t go wrong with the Bissell Garage Pro 18P03. This is easily one of the best wet/dry car vacuums on the market, and when you consider it’s low price and plethora of features, it is an excellent value!
