Nicest 2002 Vw Beetle Tdi In Louisiana! — Great vehicle to bypass by the gas pumps! It is sporty, distinctive and German-engineered transportation full of personality. This machine offers great visibility to surrounding traffic! I've kept up on the maintenance and I am proud to call this Beetle TDI my own! I do not hesitate to travel cross country in this beauty!

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

Pros: Yay! It's paid for! Insurance is very reasonable and performance is equally balanced with awesome fuel economy!  

Cons: none really-it would be even greater as a Cabriolet..Power Sun roof will have to suffice for now ;)

Sexy Silver Beetle Turbo!! — Great car for long commutes on the highway, or just running errands around town. Uses Super unleaded gas only, but rewards you with a surprising amount of performance! Very comfy and plush leather seats. Chose this car over more expensive badges just because of it's sheer fun to drive without the high price!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great on gas.  Quick and nimble both around town and on the highway.  Lo0ts of room for driver and passenger-my BF is 6'3" and fits great!

Cons: Smallish trunk..

Fun And Cute Commuter That Is Fun To Drive And Gets Exceptional Fuel Economy — I just bought this car a month ago so I could have a VW TDI that is out of warranty which I can upgrade. It is currently in the shop getting some performance upgrades added. The intent is to create a torque monster that still gets awesome fuel economy when driven conservatively so that the little angel or little devil on my shoulder can both be satisfied with one vehicle.

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

Pros: The Beetle is cute as a button and actually fun to drive.  The TDI model that I have get exceptional fuel economy.

Cons: Some of the interior trim pieces seem a little sub par.

Excellent, A Definite Keeper. — Excellent car for the money. Added a rear spoiler and it looks a bit like an old porsche 911. Goes better in the snow than my Ford Ranger 4x4. Handles excellent. Ladies love it and so do I. Strongly recommend.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks and Handling and Power

Cons: None

Very Fun Turbo — Very fun car to drive. My dad always says this car thinks its a porsche, and he is right. It's handling and manueverability is amazing. Don't let the cute exterior fool you this is not your average cute beetle. This vehicle has speed and can get up and go along with the best sports cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car is fun to drive and safe at the same time. It hugs every turn like it is part of the road. It has the pick up and go when needed and the relaxing coast when needed as well.

Cons: The car is surprisingly spacious but it is difficult to put car seats in the back seat.

Sporty City Car, High Maintenance And Not A Commuter — Overall, not good for rural areas, dirt roads, bumpy roads, frost heaves, etc. Better for sporty, fun rides on flawlessly maintained roads. Fun to drive and will last a long time, but not without lots of repairs and maintenance which can be expensive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome power and handling, beautiful interior and exterior. Brakes are excellent and long lasting. Fun to drive. Love the spoiler. Very strong engine that lasts. Smooth ride, starts easily in cold weather. Excellent stereo system, all the bells and whistles. Lots of room for a small car. Gas mileage is reasonable since it's small. Great city car. Body is rugged and resistant to rust.

Cons: Hates bumps--the sport suspension is very stiff and terrible on rural roads. Low to the ground which can also be a problem. Very costly to maintain, especially replacement of body parts like front end, suspension, etc. Check engine light and other console lights come and go frequently. Parts are rather expensive, and something is almost always broken! Rear seats don't have a lot of room.

Fun To Drive. — Car was fun to drive and really cheap on fuel cost. Regular maintenance was a bit pricey and repair costs were ridicules. Handling on winding roads was great. For such a little car it had a surprisingly quiet and smooth ride.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent gas mileage

Cons: High repair costs

Cute And Sporty — I've loved this car to commute to school and work. It was easy to drive and park and I always felt safe. It was also so easy to find in a parking lot with the bright yellow paint. I just recently drove up to Big Bear and was stunned at the power I had to climb the hills and maneuver the turns. At this point I need a bigger automobile so sadly, it's time to trade it i

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love the handling and maneuverability of the new beetle.  It is quick and zippy in and around town and easy to park.  But it is also very comfortable for road trips.  Cargo hold is bigger than you'd think especially with back seats folded down

Cons: Back seat not comfortable for adults for long rides but around town it's ok for 4
