2005 Volkswagen Beetle Overview

In keeping with its hip, trendy styling, the Volkswagen Beetle offered a standard MP3 player with its AM/FM/CD audio system in 2005, as well as an XM or Sirius satellite radio (with a three-month subscription). For the 1.8T Turbo trim package, the automaker offered an optional six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic manual shifting. New exterior colors were also introduced, including Tornado Red and Shadow Blue. The Turbo S trim package was discontinued.

Standard features included four-wheel anti-lock brakes, front and side airbags, cruise control, power steering, power windows, remote power door locks, easy entry to the rear seats, single-zone climate control, heated exterior mirrors, and an anti-theft alarm system. Options include a sunroof, Xenon high-density headlights, and an OnStar communications system.

The one thing most Beetle owners didn't have was buyer's remorse. In comment after comments, buyers are enthusiastic about their cars and are happy with their purchasing decisions. Despite its few quirks, the Beetle definitely has an ability to put a smile on any driver's face.
