Vw Beetle S — Like all Beetles the performance of the 1600 CC boxster engine was bad. Even worse the main bearings failed twice. Two rebuilt engines in less than 6 months, whilst doing National Service, that was painfull. The best looking Beetle ever produced, it had a curved front windscreen and a dashboard, unlike the flat dash of the traditional Beetles. Later I fitted a Kombi 2.0L motor to it. That made it lethal bud sadly sold it to buy a motorcycle as I could no longer afford the fuel bill.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The curved front windscreen

Cons: Performance

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

This Has Been A Great Car To Drive By NanasCar

The heated seats are awesome and the security system is wonderful. Really good tires. Love the car. I'd say the only negative would be getting into the back seat... it's kind of hard for adults... b... Read More
