    2006 Volkswagen New Beetle

    Bugs Rock

    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.

    2009 Volkswagen New Beetle

    Love the little thing

    Pros: Design

    Cons: Mileage not great, about 22 around town.

    We needed a little runabout to keep miles off our VW camper. This is great for that. Limited trunk and rear seat space but great for two and I love the look.

    2005 Volkswagen New Beetle - GLS (M5) Hatchback

    Pros: feels very roomy and safe.

    Cons: small center console, monsoon radio system.

    Advice: its a great car, it was my first car!

    i love this car! true some things may be a little small, but in all honestly you get used to it quick. the back seats are actually quite roomy (maybe not for large adults), but my friends can sit very comfortably. The turning and brakes work VERY well. There is a lot of bang for your buck! It is also wonderful that you can fold down the back seats, making it almost like a little truck. I even helped my best friend move! Wonderful car!
