The Coolest And Sexiest Car In The World — this is 1 cool car to drive get attention from everyone they all look specially if your a guy driving it. others come and go but this remains it never gets old if you pull up outside Monte Carlo in a 3 years old Mercedes it shows your poor but if you do same with a 10 years old Beetle it shows your style and character. i recommend this car to everyone. it is built to last just like a German U-Boat and its solid like Panzar Tank what mroe can i say

Pros: fantastic amazeing sexy

Cons: none

My Vw — ho wouldn't love driving Herbie!!! He's cute, excellent handling, acceleration, braking and general performance, built to last (we're at 74,000 and going great), cute appearance (great space pod), wonderful gas milage (average 38 on trips and 28-30 in town), has been a low maintenance vehicle (other than oil changes and a few bulbs (which I've learned to change myself) cos of ownership has been low, and on a scale of 1-10 fun factor is a 15!!!!!

Pros: Cute, great gas mileage, great performance, and really fun to drive

Cons: none

Your Answer To Attention Seeking On The Road Lol! —

Exciting and fun car to own and drive, looks fantastic with the top down! Performance is not bad, with good pick up on the 2L 8V engine which used to power the older generation Golf GTi. Interior is pretty simple and functional, except that huge long dashboard, not too friendly for Spore car market as I need to stretch to reach my IU for my cashcard, trick is to keep separate cashcard for manual parking. Definitely a good-looker on the road, not very common, and if you are into seeking a second glance from other road users, this car will do the trick nicely. Practicality is pretty much on the low side, tighter rear legroom due to additional safety feature in the rear, and a relatively almost useless trunk space! Solidly built soft-top, windnoise hardly intrusive when driving top-up even at highspeed cruising up to 120km/h, and body is solidly built without the common body jerk, as compared to Peugeots and Renaults CCs. Swaped my original VW 16" grandma rims for a set of sporty 17" wheels, while ride quality suffers a bit but sure looks much better! Suspension a bit on the softer side, but not too bad for a heavy car. Gas consumption is a bit on the less economical side, at approximately 390km per approximatelly 50L full tank, mixed city/ expressways driving, usually lasts me for a week. Probably will keep this for a while before I decide on a new convertible... maybe the Volvo C70, Audi A4 Convertible or BMW 6-series convertible.

Pros: Excellent looks and lifestyle purchase

Cons: Impractical unless you are really single

Best Car For New Driver! — I love my car. It is very easy to use and I feel comfortable driving it. The only problem I have had with it was that the rear light is constantly popping out and it does not have a fast enough pick up, if you try gunning it when your in a problem, its very scary. Rarely ever fill it. But there is NO trunk space or space for more than 2 passengers unless they are under the age of 6!

Pros: Cute, good on gas

Cons: Rear light pops out, no trunk space and little space for more than 2 passengers

My Car — I love my car so much. It's so cute and i love that its small because its easy to park and its a great car to start on. It did have a couple problems with the trunk and the seat to get into the back when i first got it but i got it fixed while it was still under warranty, so all is good.

Pros: It's easy to park.

Cons: The backseats only fit two people.

I Feel Most Secure & Comfortable In This Tight Car — This vehicle is the best car I have ever driver or owned. It is solid on the highway. Vehicle will stop on a dime without nosing down or swaying. Car corners beautifully, hugs the road. Handles very well on a windy highway and in the snow. Have never fishtailed in the snow or ice. This car has proven to be perfect in every aspect, in my opinion.... in addition to being cute and stylish

Pros: Visual appeal, especially with convertible  
+ Ride comfort  
+ Steering  
+ Performance of manual-shift diesel  
+ Resale value  

Cons: Performance of non-turbo convertible  
- Backseat space  
- Cargo space in convertible

Great Sporty Convertible — I bought this car as a fun weekend or part time commute vehicle. It is very comfortable , rides smooth and quiet. The gas mileage has been excellent, I very seldom use backseat, very small, wouldn't be comfortable as a family car. It has great acceleration as well I have put 4000 miles on it in 2 years I've owned it. Never had any engine or major problems with anything. Has been a great car to own!

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

Pros: Very Sporty, great on gas!

Cons: Small backseat and trunk

2004 Vw Beetle Gls Convertible — I like everything about this car. Mostly, it's adorable. I always get comments on it. Over all, the car is great. We've done all the necessary updating and maintenance the car needed to be as perfect as it can get. It's a great around town car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: VW built a good car in 2004/5 in Mexico.  The motor has not had any trouble and is known not to.  The standard transmission is strong and no clutch problems.  It needed cosmetic work when I got it.  I had the door panels reupholstered, center dash replaced, window tint added, and the biggie was a new top with life time warranty.  I also added lots of goodies like a wind screen, top boot, Husky floor mats, new shift boot, new wheel centers, new VW emblems front and back, and more.  I love this car and always get looked at and commented on when I'm out and about.

Cons: Small interior especially for groceries and shopping.  Low to ground so speed bumps and curbs are dangerous.
