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.

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 :)

The 2.5L, 5 Cylinder engine has more output and power than the 1.8 T

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!

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
