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

Looking For The Gas Mileage And A Small Sporty Look? This Is It. — Okay, this by far is the best car I have ever owned. First off, it was a diesel. I got a kick out of going to the truck stops where the big boys would fill their 200 gallon tanks and I would fill my little tank of 12 gallons. It would get over 40 miles per gallon. That was the best deal of all. I had no mechanical problems with this little guy. Had a few minor problems that VW fixed immediately. The most major problem I had was the filters clogging up on the moon roof and flooded the floor board. Filters??? Who knew there were filters. Certainly not me but VW did. Well, anyway they are currently being sued for that. Overall again, this was the best car I owned just for the gas mileage alone.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: AWESOME gas mileage

Cons: The diesel has no get up and go. Don't expect 0-60 in 10 seconds.

Read the specs right off the line...fastest Beetle made (or available) in the USA, 180hp stock, torque is 174, 6 speed manual tranny, heated seats and mirrors, 17"rims with p225/45/17. Body is modeled after the Beetle cup race cars, and only 5000 made in US in 4 different colors. Great fun!! Wish I still had it :-(

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

Pros: fast fast

Cons: I sold it.

Horrible Car! — Performance: acceleration was good, the handling was good, brakes were ok Build quality: Way too many repairs needed on this car. Within the first 2 months of owning I spent about $1500 on fixing it. In the 3 years I owned it I spent about $5000 on repairs. It was a fun car to drive but way too many problems than you would expect for a VW. Would NEVER recommend any type of VW to a friend.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Gas mileage

Cons: Too many repairs needed

It's The Dogs! — This car is the dogs b*llocks! It's 2.3 V5 engine is really impressive, everyone thinks its a normal Beetle, until I press the accelerator and she takes off! It looks funky, especially with its unique alloy wheels. Volkswagen's rule, they make the most amazing cars, I'd had several VW's and not one has ever let me down.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cos I can beat everyone off the lights, lol

Cons: Nothing!

2002 New Beetle Gls - Slugbug Awesomeness — This is probably the most fun car I've ever had. While the 2.sl0 engine isn't the peppiest without a turbo, it certainly can get up and go when it needs to. The best thing - it is so incredibly roomy for the driver and passenger.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Color, Comfort

Cons: No turbo in this model

Very Fun Car!! — It's a lot of fun and had some great options... sunroof, heated seats, etc. Lots of great memories in this car as well. The one problem for sure is that there isn't a cd player available as well as it's expensive to fix!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: They're actually a lot sportier than you would think!

Cons: no CD player available!!
