    Fun Car/amazing Mpg — I'm 6'6" and I still have headroom to spare. The Beetle is peppy, handles well and with the 5 speed and TDI I get a real world 45mpg! I love it!

    Pros: Fun to look at and to drive

    Cons: not much luggage space - but that's what roof racks are for!

    I Like It, But I'd Prefer More Power :) — it's a love hate relationship. love the 'cute' aspect of it, and the fact that EVERYONE i know can spot me...they all know my car. But I have had problems with lights, and other electrical things...and a problem with the room detaching from the rear window. 0.0. also, there are quite a few blind spots in the car, but it just takes time getting used to.

    Pros: way cute

    Cons: cupholders, lol, and not enough vrrrooom vrrrooom

    Sportiest Production Bug. Fun, Hot Wheels — Fun, eye catching, fast bug. Great Reflex Yellow color. This car was fun and always had people looking. Have to love the bug culture and the people. Just plain fun and peppy and hippyish... gotta love that. Great gas mileage. Negatives: huge dashboard and front windshield, sunshades often useless, bad turning radius

    Pros: Fun, cool, fast production bug

    Cons: noisy rear spoiler, turning radius, sunshades, huge windshield and dashboard

    Great Driving Car That's Economical — A beautiful car to drive. I averaged between 25 - 30 mpg. It has a fabulous sound system. The handling is excellent with outstanding braking and overall safety. The Audi/ Porsche steering combined with 17 inch wheels provides outstanding control in all conditions.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This car is essentially an Audio TT turbo dressed up like a Beetle. It's a blast to drive, handles likes it's on rails and looks great!

    Cons: Some parts can be harder to find since it's a limited edition but I never had a problem ultimately locating what I needed. Requires premium gas.

    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
