Pros

Its cute and yellow and looks brand new

Cons

The cupholders.. they barely fit a "small"

Cute And Bubbly Car! :) — I dislike the cup-holders. I also dislike you have to take parts off to do the oil change. I like the 1.8T engine it gives it a go. It doesn't get great gas mileage and eats the premium gas from SHELL.. But thats part my fault b/c I drive to fast! :)

Amazing Tiny Car For Super Huge Tall Guy — Acceleration and top speed are amazing, brakes rock, o2 sensors keep breaking, 24 miles to each gallon, handling on corners is amazing at higher speeds, needed a better water pump recently, not a lot of space under the hood of the car, fun to drive every single day, has a great takeoff on the line, 0-60 is about 7 seconds, 15 gallon fuel tank capacity, 115HP engine, 4-speed automatic transmission, max RPMs is 8000

My Beetle Been Berry, Berry Good To Me. — It's the worst handling thing I've ever had but it gets me where I'm going and has been as reliable as the Rock of Gibraltar. I wouldn't get another one but you can't beat a VW. I'm sold on VW and would recommend them.

Pros

Fun to drive, very stable on the highway, quiet and had a great interior for the price.

Cons

Small trunk. Engine components difficult to access for work. A little too low for snowy Chicago streets.

Fun Fishbowl — I bought this car the first year the New Beetle came out. Surprising pretty roomy and comfortable on the inside. At the time it was rare and definitely turned a lot of heads. It had it first year car whoas. Power windows has issues, steering wheel paint came off on my hands, seats look tattered after only a few months of ownership. I suspect most of these issue have been ironed out by now. This was fun car to own.

Cons

Turbo Bugs Rock! — I love my car, it cute, fast, and fun to drive. the only complaint i have is tht the factory window motors are bad. in my current and pervious bug i had to replace the $300 window motors 3 times between the two. also, some of the plastic trim pieces on the interior break and scratch easily. overall i love my car, after all, no car is perfect.

Pros

Almost everything: Turbo (sounded like an airplane taking off & went FAST), adorable,
great color, it's a VW BUG for goodness sake.

Cons

Dodgy stuff kept happening (window fell in, seat came off-track, water in taillight housing
which kept shorting out the lights & couldn't be fixed except to replace the bulb), it
allowed my husband to get his greedy hands on it so he could trade it in for a boring
middle-aged-white-guy car.

I Got This Car For My Birthday & I Adored It. I Cried The Day I Watched It Drive Away Without Me. — I had a 2000 VW New Beetle. The color was Vapor, which was a limited edition of 2000. VW described Vapor as "blue that has seen a ghost." People would stop & stare at my car & one would say, "I love that white bug!" & the other one would say, "No, it's blue." "No, white." Etc. My car was sold to me as a regular VW New Beetle. The day after I brought it home I popped the hood to admire the engine. And yes, there it was, sprawling in big white letters across the engine: TURBO. I felt like Mister Pennybags, the Monopoly icon, when the Community Chest card informs him that he just won second prize in a beauty contest. Believe me when I tell you, this car could GO. You put your big toe down lightly on the gas pedal & plah-DOW! Off that car went. It was a gem. About 2 months after I bought the car (new from the dealer), the passenger side window fell into the door. The car was under warranty so the repair was free. About a year later VW recalled the 2000 New Beetles because of this problem. When the car was about 5 years old, the passenger seat came off-track. It kept getting worse. We took the car in about a year after this problem started & VW said it would cost $2000 to fix. In 2006 my husband decided he wanted a new car. He was driving a 2002 Honda CRV. So he took my bug & traded it in for a 2006 Acura TSX *stifling yawn*. He has no idea, but when he drove it out of our driveway to trade it in, I cried. I felt like Jemaine when Sally broke up with him. Now I'm driving the 2002 Honda CRV.

I think it is the cutest car I have ever owned. People always wave to you in a Beetle!

Cons

Not practical for moving or hauling things around however, I have fit a dishwasher into the back hatch.

My Little Dumpling — I really love this car. Now I drive a truck due to my lifestyle and no longer need this one. I plan on buying another VW Beetle in the Fall of 2013. They do tend to run a little rough like a go cart, so if you need a luxury ride, this car is not for you.

A Lot Of Power In A Compact Package — I love the power of this car, you put it in second gear and tromp on it and it puts you back in your seat. It runs and handles great. Does have almost100,000 miles but thats nothing for a VW

A Fun Little Car To Play In! By sunflowergal

This car is great for a single person or couple but the back seat will not accommodate a car seat and growing toddler. The car is not made to carry any cargo. It would be perfect for a second car! Read More
