Pros

This is my wife's Beetle. She is a hard case as you can see by the two photos with the two cars side by side. Not only is she an aficionado but she trades every 10 years for virtually the same color (in and out). She would drive no other car!

Cons

None but I have been warned about having a hard hit to the front as difficult to repair.

A Great Small Car. — She just loves her Beetles. Great vision, economy, hauling capacity and does everything she wants it to do. Obviously she likes red with a black interior. she has a nice radio that suits her as she only listens to NPR anyway.

Vw Very Reliable — I was looking for this type of car when I bought it and it was definetly a great choice a great deal. There was nothing I didn't like about the car, if I was staying in the USA I would keep it and if it wasn't so expensive I would take it with me.

This Car Rides And Handles Better Then A Bmw Or A Minni Cooper. — I like everything about this vehicle. I bought a minnie cooper and am a small 5Ft. female, the cooper is tooo tight, can't get hand down between the seat and the door. I owned a BMWZ4 , the Beetle convertable has that beat with more room, handling and comfort.

Fun Car! Great Gas Mileage — This is a fun car to drive. It handles nice and gets great mileage. The 1 draw back is that it is small!!

Convertible Beetle — It is very nice looking car, many people stop my wife asking questions about the car... They really want her phone number :(... Besides that it's fun to drive in summer time, a little bit noisy inside and very small cargo capacity... Can't go crazy on a shopping day... husbands love that :)

Cons

The rear headroom is really uncomfortable.

The New Beetle Special Edition "hot Wheels"!! — This car is a really fun ride! And this special "Hot Wheels" edition really rocks, because of all the extras it has, like the color-concept leather seats, the logos, plus the color of the mirrors, and all the standards that come from the best equipped standard NB. And the nicest part is that this car is one out of 240!

My Love Bug :-) — Rides like a tractor but is the cutest little car I've ever driven! Very fun to drive, plus suits my personality perfectly. The only thing I don't like is that it has a ridiculous amount of wind noise, even with the top up, lol. But of course, that's what you get for driving a convertible!
