Pros: The distinctive Beetle shape that makes people smile when they see it.
Cons: road noise...it's so low to the ground that all noise travels to the cabin. I have a 5 speed and that may increase it.This is my second Beetle and my 4th VW. I like the sturdiness of a Beetle..and the dependability...and the cuteness, and the size......and the flower vase,..and the big windows,...and the 5 cylinder engine, a perfect match for my car, with all the power yet good fuel economy to please me.
Cons: SMALLFUN CAR TO DRIVE
Cons: Trunk space
