    Id be putting a call/complaint in. Mine is a barrel type (DS05) and is 10 years old now, I shipped it back from London. I've only ever bought new filters and a button on the handle broken. New part was only $30.
    I only use it once a week now since getting a roomba 3 years ago.

    It should have a number for customer service located on the vacuum somewhere. I'd be ringing it if I were you. 3.5 years is not long enough for a Dyson IMO.

    Like many products, Dysons are now also made off-shore. The were made in England but are now manufactured in Malaysia. It's great that so many people are finding theirs are lasting still.

    That's disappointing to hear. I think it's incredibly misleading to move your production to somewhere cheaper and still charge outrageous prices. Plus the lower quality trashes the brand. An example of this is Sheridan manchester, they moved offshore, same outrageous prices but now a lower quality.
    I think it's deceptive. OP I'd ring and if the response is poor I'd post on their Facebook site (if they have one) and post reviews online such as product review to warn others of these crappy new batches of Dysons.

    Eta:my mil has a Dyson and it's 8 yo used at least twice weekly and still great apart from a filter change. So yours SHOULD still going. They still charge the same amount!

    This makes me so mad!

    No wonder landfill is in the state it is. Pathetic.

    4.5 years and going strong. I expected it too keep going at least another 4 years. Thinking of replacing the head with a turbine head. Has anyone else done this?

    Off topic I know but it makes me mad too. I've chucked so many toasters and kettles etc in the past....I'm no big greenie but it worries me about where all this junk is going. I would love to pay more for something that lasts but there doesn't seem to be an option out there.
