I had a Kenmore Canister vacuum for over 20 years before it had to be replaced. I loved it so much I only researched Kenmore replacements and then purchased the red model. What a disappointment! In less than a year a plastic part broke and had to be replaced. It should have been made with metal! I had to wait literally months for the part to arrive and then it cost over $100 for part and labor. I could have bought an inexpensive upright on sale for less than that.
