2006 Volkswagen Beetle 2.5L ConvertibleReview
Overall:

Fun To Drive, But Impossible To Work On. — This is the first foreign made auto I've ever owned. Although I like driving it, parts are expensive and there isn't much you can do yourself.

Pros: good gas mileage, good handling

Cons: expensive parts, hard to work on

So Far So Good — My wife and I owned a 2000 cyber green turbo hatchback before getting this on and loved it. This has been good so far. I like the convertible, but miss the turbo and the 1.8l motor.

Overall:

Awesome Car For My Daugther...absolutely Love It. — Great car with really no huge issues. The ride is great and handling is tight. It is small but what do you expect...we have had a teenager fall asleep in the back seat and have had packed the trunk full so works for her. No problems with the top. Had one issue with the safety light coming on after hitting a few bumps but got that fixed without any issues. Do have an issue as of now with the heater in the winter months but otherwise is great in the snow and hopefully will be getting that looked at soon. All in all, very happy.

Pros: Cute!

Cons: None...
