I have owned my Kirby for over 30 years and it still performs excellently. Repairs have not been needed, just new drive belts which are inexpensive and quickly obtained.
Glad to know that the latest version is lighter and more manouverable. Less weight to move around as I get older! Pity that I am unlikely to ever need to replace my current workhorse.

My sister and I purchased our first Heritage 2 Kirby when we were single, thinking that we should buy something that would last us. Today 35 years later we still have the same Kirby. When my husband and I moved 18 years ago we had a second floor with bedroom carpets so we decided too buy a second Kirby, a Generation 4, and keep it upstairs only. Our Kirbys still work great, they get serviced when needed and they come back looking new again because they polish the metal parts as well.
They will probably last another 20 years and most likely be something that we pass on to our kids.
