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

My Favourite Car Ever — Great car! My favourite car I've ever owned, a Last Edition German built 1978 VW Bug. Called Silvester!

Pros: Great looks, lasts forever, comfortable...?

Cons: Heater broken and a little tiny bit slow...

16 And Love My Bug — I am 16 and have a beautiful 1978 Vw Beetle Convertable. I LOVE my car more than anything in the world!! The best part is I only paid $5,000 dollars for it. I would recomend a Beetle convertable to anyone.

Owner for 2 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:700

Pros: I love the top down and the wind in my hair!!!

Cons: No heat but i wouldent drive it in the cold anyway.

The features are close to what I had in my previous car. Paid almost $10,000 more than what I paid for my brand new car in 2019 so thats a little disappointing. Other than that, I love my beetle. L... Read More

We have not driven the car much, but... My wife wanted a fun car. Her requirements; convertible, somewhat sporty. The V-dub seems to fit the bill. The top is easy to operate and the performance to ... Read More
