Love It — These cars are so cool they always get people attention on the road and. just about everybody know what kind it is. The stick shifting gets a little tricky when people pull up Really close to you on hill while stopping,.O. A great quote I heard was "a smart Germany never sits in a running bug". The bugs were notorious for carbon monoxide poisoning from rust heaters.

Pros: I love the classic look of the car

Cons: It is a stick so it can get tricky at times

I Adore The Bug! — I drove one for 14 years; it started and ran well every day! What more could you ask? After that, when I saw one, I would always smile and wish I had never sold it. I recently bought another 1973 Super Beetle. Still always worth a smile.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Happy memories, starts every day!

Cons: no heat or ac (I enjoy amenities now)
