    2001 Volkswagen Beetle — It's 100% pure German engineering. It's a quick little 2-door hatchback with TURBO. It's an automatic, which is the only downfall, but it's got a moonroof, perfect for putting a surfboard up through it. Brand new CD player/MP3 player, and power locks and windows with keyless entry. Amazing MPG, and it's a turbo that actually uses unleaded gas. Leather interior. It's cute, and it's definitely the car for me.

    Pros: power everything, moonroof, 2-door hatchback

    Cons: nothing negative

    Great Car! Super Tunable! — 1.8T VW engine is one of the best in the world. In a car like the beetle, it changes it entirely!

    Pros: Looks great, pretty quick!

    Cons: Front wheel drive... :-S

    This Car Has Been Great, Except For My Current Issues With The Radio Being Stuck On Default Station!! — Sleek, stylish, roomy. Has issue with check engine light coming on...for no apparent reason. Excellent gas mileage. The radio however will not work after changing out the battery on the car. It turns on & off, will not play a cassette(like I used that anyways) will not play my fm tuner for ipod, and the radio will not change off of 88.3 default station, volume controls not working either!

    Bought It New In January, 2001 — A/C has gone out and very expensive to have it fixed. I guess I could spend the money and restore it back to original condition. It has 133k miles and still runs well enough to keep for a while longer.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Car is a lot of fun to drive and with the turbo is sneaky fast.

    Cons: Quality of interior components is lacking. Plastic used is poor quality and parts are breaking off all the time.
    Monsoon sound system was great at first but amplifier cuts in and out, cannot control volume.
    Paint (Dark Blue Metallic) deteriorating badly is south Florida sun and heat. Bought it in Chicago and did not expect to be taking it to Florida. Light color would have been better.

    A Responsive Car To Drive On Local Roads And Highways. — This car has been a gem for the ten years I have owned it. We drove it to Canada one year and the way it holds the road is superior to our Chrysler T & C. The air bags make this a very safe car to drive. THIS CAR HAS SOLD!

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

    Pros: Fuel efficient safe car, and fun to to drive. Rarely in the shop other than for maintenance.

    Cons: Small, but that is a given factor.

    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
