Cordless is so convenient, best thing I have ever purchased in the house, and the car is a bonus...

Just seen this thread ( a bit late I know) but my missus has taken a fancy to the V8 and it seems a big jump in price over the V6 - any advice please?

Buy whatever you want for the house
The v8 is a decent upgrade on the v6; v6 is very very good.

Then buy all the attachments for the car (flexi hose, stiff brush and dusting brush get the most use).

You don’t need a separate Dyson just for the car

The refurb Karcher WD2 is currently £40 on the outlet website but out of stock. B&Q have them for 50 quid brand new, but for that money you could get the Titan wet and dry from Screwfix that many people on here rate very highly. I have the Macallister branded version of the same machine and it’s really good, apart from the push in hose fitting. Perfect for the car interior, great for wet use when needed and it also has a blower function for drying the car after a wash. Even used the power tool take off function a couple of times.

I've used vax wet and dry for years which has been great but bought a Dyson v6 about 6mths ago. Brilliant Hoover and so convenient as I can give the car and house a quick vacuum little and often. This means it is less of a chore so I don't mind doing it. As commented above if doing whole house we have to put a spurt on as battery lasts about 10mins on maxi power!! This is where v8 differs it has a better battery.

So... been looking for a small handheld, could be corded, to use for the car, maybe handy to have in the house too.

I used to have a black and decker cordless that was rubbish, the small dysons are horrific prices, and we've had three vax over the years and all were mediocre at best.

What are you folks using, what's good, what's bad?
Extension hose?
My experience of the smaller vacs has been similar to yours and I find a hose easier to get into smaller spaces without catching on or hitting things.
