My Beetle Bug :) — I absolutely love my little car except for the electrical problems I had with it in the beginning. Nothing warranty can't fix though :) It's absolutely beautiful inside and out and very roomy insisde although it doesn't look like it. It is a blast to drive. The gas mileage is great and the maintenance is not too bad considering it is a German vehicle.

Pros: fun, cute, cheap on gas!

Cons: recall issues and electrical

New Beetle Turbos — You cant mistaken the New Beetle for any other car on the road. 6 Speed, 180hp, two tone leather seats, 17" delta X alloy rims that dont come on any other model VW. Unique front and rear bumper and a rear spoiler that goes up at 45mph and down again when you stop.

Pros: 6 speed, fast

Cons: Blind spots

Great Local Driver — Great performance on the street, lacks all the high end power you want for highway driving. Impractical for any long period of time. Overall, great car for the money, blows away all the others in its class in the sprint.

Pros: Lots of power in the low end

Cons: Impractical

Nobody Suspects A Thing — 180hp with a twin turbo engine for a 1,800 kg car. This is the better power/weight ratio than most Porsches.

Pros: nobody suspects a thing

Cons: everybody wants to race you once you start moving

Fun, Nice Looking, And Sporty! — I love this car. I have had a few issue with it, most of which were still under warranty at the time, but over all I have driven Honda before and this car handles MUCH better and just feels like a nicer car. That being said if you don't get the sport package then you are missing out.

Miles Driven per Year:15,000

Pros: Heated seats! Good on gas, lots of storage cargo room, over all fun car.

Cons: Have had issues like a hazard switch that went bad three times now in two years.  It's a $35 part but clearly should have been recalled.  Had an EPC switch that troubled me twice as well but that has been fixed.  Little things like that.  I guess the only reason for me that would keep me from buying another one is dealing with the dealership here where I live.  They are nasty and even service centers hate to get parts for me from them.  Otherwise I say get a beetle you'll have fen and look good doing it!

Pros: Speed
Acceleration
Brakes
Heat
AC
Butt Warmers
Sunroof
Trunkspace
15.58 gallon gasoline tank

Indifferent — As long as my car runs, I don't have a problem with it. However for the past year it has given me too much problem that I can even count.
