It's not easy keeping a car clean and dirt free, but Black & Decker's 12V Automotive Pivoting Vac aims to make it a bit more convenient for car owners. Designed specifically for automobiles, the PAV12000W pivoting vacuum features a unique Accu-Reach extending nozzle with locking pivoting action to clean in those awkward and hard to reach places such as under seats or between the center console. Simply plug it into the 12V power outlet of any vehicle and the PAV12000W's cyclonic action provides plenty of suction power to pick up basic messes like dirt, gravel, crumbs and more. It also comes complete with a flexible hose, two different nozzles and a convenient storage bag to store the vacuum and its accessories when finished.

  • Easy-to-empty one step bagless dirt canister leaves no mess behind during disposal
  • Extendable 16 ft. power cord allows for full vacuum freedom to clean from front dash to back seat
  • Cyclonic action keeps the filter cleaner and the suction power stronger

    A Bargain for Neat Freaks!
    What a bargain in the day and age of the $20 car wash (yes, that's what they cost in LA now.) Just when the strange crumbs and crushed leaves on the car mats are starting to bug you enough to think about a visit to the carwash, you can whip out your Pivot Vac.

    I did a lot of online research before buying this Vac and have been very happy with it.

    1.) There is no need to think ahead and charge it. Because the cord fits in your cigarette charger, it's always ready to go when you have the urge to clean up a mess.

    2.) The cord is long enough to cover all the areas I want to vacuum in my SUV.

    3.) The Vac has plenty of suction power for leaves, cherios, pet hair, and the strange stuff kids manage to drag into the back seat. The Vac's pivoting feature and the attachments make it easy to get into all those hard to reach, difficult areas of your car.

    4.) Finally, someone at Black & Decker did a great job realizing that anyone who wants a clean car, also wants a neat and orderly way to store this in their car. All the attachments fit easily in the bag (no PhD required to fit them in), which I keep in my trunk.

    This was a great purchase. I'll be giving this to all my family members this year.

    Powerful Convenience
    Love how nice it is to leave my 100 ft extension cord in garage along with my little shop vac that would always tip over....this has the same power just pluging into outlets in vehicles...LONG CORD TOO! front and back seats done without changing the plug location. Pretty quiet so you think its not as powerful.....but it the tilting front to reach into door pockets also...nothing like what the old ones were.....those sucked but in a different way...this has power!

    Not the power I expected for the price
    First use: vacuuming up pine needles out of carpet in back of car.. had to go over area repeatedly... light dust seemed to work OK.

    Great Little Vac
    This pivot vac is a God-send!
    Just when you think you've had enough of dust, crumbs and every day car filth, once again, Black & Decker (a trusted name in my house) saves the day.
    All of the parts of the vac fits in the neat bad so storage is easy.
    This machine has powerful suction and a cord plenty long enough to reach all over the car. The pivoting head go in the tiniest places with the crevice tool so that the small crumbs and pieces of dirt were sucked out with ease. The brush cleaned the floor mats so they look new again.
    I would recommend the B & D Pivot Vac for anyone who has a car and appreciates it to be clean!

    Oh so convenient
    I have to say, this little auto vac sure does the trick. A co-worker recently purchased one and let me give it a try. I have two beautiful children, under 10, but boy can they tear apart a car. There was dirt, dried leaves and grass, hair, food, you name it, it was in my car.

    I plugged this little vac into my car and right away it started sucking up the mess with no problem. Once I got all the loose dirt up I attached the hose and upholstery brush and really went to work. I was amazed at how well the upholstery brush works. There was embedded grass and hair that I didn't think I'd be able to get but with a few swipes back and forth with the brush they were gone. The brush works wonders.

    The cord length is perfect. You should have no problem reaching any spot in your car or SUV.

    The filter is super easy to access and empty. It's dishwasher safe so after a few cleanings just throw it in the washer and voila.

    When you're finally done cleaning your car the vac comes with a handy little storage bag that you can put everything in and then store in your trunk.

    While it's no shop vac, it is super convenient to keep in your car and tidy up whenever and wherever you feel the need. Whether you are at home, in the parking lot at the grocery store or on a weekend getaway this Black and Decker car vacuum is the ideal accessory to keep in your car and keep it looking like new.

    Two thumbs up!

    This Vacuum makes you happy!
    Is there anything as love at first sight to a vacuum? This is exactly what happened. This pivot auto vac is the real deal! Black&Decker had really put forth a great effort in designing the best auto vac you can find. It is compact, easy to use and OF COURSE does what it is suppose to do, clean! I'm a fan!

    Magic Nozzle-- The biggest selling point of this vacuum is its nozzle. It pivots, extends and smartly shaped so you can get around every hard to reach area of your car. Want to reach further? No problem! It even comes with an extension hose at no extra cost! I love this smart design!

    Amazing storage-- I'm still in awe at how this little vacuum can pack in so many parts. Filter, attachment, extension cord and the dirt compartment are all stored right in the vacuum. Not to mention that there is a nice storage bag to carry this vacuum around, which makes it so much easier to store at the back of your car.

    Unbelievable reach-- I need to emphasize that its electrical cord is long enough to reach the far end of your car and I have no problem vacuuming the trunk of my car (I have a hatch back). The extension hose also comes in handy if you don't want to carry around the vacuum while you are vacuuming.

    Squeaky clean-- What use is a vacuum if it doesn't clean? This thing does a wonderful job sucking up all the crumbs and dirt from all places. Something stuck in the carpet? The little attachment brush helps to break away dirt with no problem. I even found a few extra coins for my laundry! I do find that the vacuum has more suction power without attaching the extension hose though.

    Easy Dirt Disposal-- Disposing dirt is the easiest thing! One click of a button, the dirt compartment door opens and dirt comes right out.

    My car is so clean now as if it's brand new! I highly recommend this vacuum to everyone. As the holiday season comes, this might just be the perfect gift for my family. :)

    I Love This Little Vac!
    Over the past year, I have picked up fishing as a serious hobby. So I am always tracking sand and dirt into my car. Not to mention, what my trunk looks like from putting all of my fishing gear in and out. This little vac, has been a lifesaver.

    It is lightweight and not bulky, so using it is a snap. It provides enough suction to pick up all the dirt and debris that I track into the car. If it will fit into the nozzle, this vac will pick it up. I was amazed at how long the cord is, so you can use it all over the car, without having to make any adjustments.

    Black and Decker did a great job with the nozzle design. It is slim enough to fit into all the crevices of your car, without any attachments! The sides of the seats, inside the door crevices, all of the little spaces - No Problem! Even if I went to the car wash and used the large vacuums, you can't get into the crevices like you're able to to with this vac.

    I will definitely recommend this vac to my friends and family. Lightweight, good suction, long cord and great for crevices. What more could you ask for? Well, there is more...I love the fact that you don't have to worry about charging it and the charge running low. Just plug into your car charger and go. The icing on the cake - it looks great and comes with a nice little storage bag. Like I said, what more could you ask for?
