2012 Beetle Is Worth A Look-see. — Compared to our 2007 Beetle, handling is better, acceleration is better. Interior is nicer with retro accents and more storage. The audio is a nice addition and the NAV seems adequate. The alloy wheels with the hideous plastic discs are gonna be altered soon. I am swapping oversized plastic disk for the MKIV Jetta AVUS wheel center caps. Its a much more sophisticated look. I'll post pics when that's done. I do wish we could have waited for the 2014 model. The new 1.8T is touted to have 17% better fuel economy with the same performance as the 2.5 UPDATE: With VW maintaining the pricing of the Beetle and replacing the 2.5 with the new 1.8T, this car is a great package. APR Tuning just produced an ECU reflash that will make the car perform even better with more power AND economy...TRIPLE WIN!

Super Sassy — This is a fun, eye catching ride. Its very shiny and clean inside. The leather sets are nice and soft, and wait for it...... heated!! It has bluetooth and led lighting around the speakers and on the doors. One word-Farfegnugen

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
