Fantastic — If you have driven 70's models this is way better. The steering is very light, it feels a lot bigger inside, and looks better. My car handles great, no dangerous under steer or over steer. If other owners have this problem you might not have the tire pressure at 17psi front and 26psi rear. I would recremend this car to anyone looking for a easy project or a good car.

Pros

The styling of this car is timeless.  It is fun to drive, easy to park and easy to repair.

Cons

Can be a little temperamental.  Does require regular maintenance to ensure it will take you to & from your destination.  Without proper maintenance it will leave you walking

Great Little Car — After almost 50 years working on cars, the simplicity of this little engineering marvel never ceases to amaze me. When I was younger, it was all about horsepower; now it is about engineering, simplicity, and keeping this great little car alive and running well.

The Worst Car You'll Ever Love — List many folks my age, my first car was a VW Beetle. The '67 Beetle was the first to come with a 12 volt electrical system, a gas guage as standard equipment and the first with no reserve gas tank. $5.00 would fill the tank and I could drive all week on 10 gallons of gas. Better hope you didn't have to use the windshield washers too often, or your spare tire would go flat. Single-ported 1600cc engine provided about 58 hp into a 4 speed transaxle gearbox. Had to make sure that the ice scraper was nearby when driving in the winter, as that was how most VW drivers kept ice off the inside of the windshield. The cars were clunky, cold, cramped, sluggishly performing, and quirky as hell. The rear end was so heavy that if it ever cut loose on you, it'd be the front end before you knew it. I can't wait to own another one!

Nice! — Very comfortable to ride.. It has a unique look for a old sports compact car. It has a good quality to think that this car is bought by my grand father way back 1968 and until know its still alive. But you have to expect some major or minor repairs for it is a vintage car..

Buy One If You Can. They Were Built To Last!! — More bugs made than any other model or make on the planet! No make of car had the testing before production runs like the VW! An entire sub-culture was started by this car. It floats! Best car ever made! Done!

Bug — This car has the distiniction of being the cheapest car I've ever bought and also being the car that caught fire the fastest after I purchased it (I've had 2 car fires). It caught fire 2 miles after I picked it up.
