Fun To Have — The car was great with acceleration and braking. It didn't need much work, just a chip in the engine and some work to the fuel injection. I had a ton of fun it but was a little too into racing and ended up crashing it.

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

Pros: quick

Cons: weak

Vw — Surprisingly quick. But I still think it's a crappy VW. Too many problems, too expensive, why pay? It's a chick car. The dashboard went on for miles. And why do all vws it smell like crayons? weird huh? I think it could be a lot better, go old school!

Pros: Quick...

Cons: Not cool, not fun, looks crappy, feels crappy.

Bob The Beetle — I love how I can pull in and out of small spaces since the Beetle is so small. There are just a few minor things that I want to get fixed...I need a new lense for the driver's side fog light in the grill. I also need to touch up the interior...I took it to get a car wash and they stretched the leather on both door panels. I have been debating selling this car, but every time I want to I can't bring myself to doing it...I just love it too much : )

Pros: Small and compact; turbo engine

Cons: Only about 18 mpg

Vw Beetle — My car has amazing "get-up-and-go" for a little thing! It has a turbo engine and great handling. It has needed a few repairs. I got this car with 68 k miles on it and after about 5k miles later the front axle broke. The exterior is a limited edition color called "vortex" and the interior is black leather. It gets about 28 mpg highway and 26 mpg city.

Pros: Great shape

Cons: It is really small

Cj's Beetle Review — This is my current car - i love it - it is quite quick as mine is a 2.3 v5 so its not too bad. It is not bad on fuel and it is a good quality car. It is really fun to drive. It is dark blue with alloys and the interior is black leather. The only things I have had problems with is the drainage holes getting blocked so it kept getting water in the footwells. Hopefully this is now sorted though. Apart from that it is great.

Pros: GREAT FUN CAR AND RELIABLE

Cons: BLOCKED DRAINAGE

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
