2012 Volkswagen BeetleAn Ceitean - Colorado Springs, CO11/30/2016
Plenty of room in the cargo area. Lots of legroom for the 6ft and above club (just don't expect four of us to fit all at once!) Power! I have the manual transmission, shifting from 2nd to 3rd is not fluid until you get used to the rpm transfer. Great gas mileage, drives like a dream overall. I've had plenty of vehicles and this tops my list of sedan/ hatchbacks!
I love driving my bug, for the most part. It is small and compact, so if you are coming from a car or SUV it will take getting used to the smaller quarters, but it scoots around town easily, fits into parking spots easily and is economical on gas! The cons: driving a stick shift in bumper to bumper traffic is the pits and since I have the convertible, there is a blind spot for me when trying to back out of parking spaces or make left turns from forked roads. If you have kids and need space of car seats, this is not the car for you. But, if you love the drive a sporty car to scoot around town this is a fantastic, reliable car!
Most cars in its price are shaped for performance in a wind tunnel and not pretty to look at. It has style and character. Creature comforts are well accounted for in the Fender and GLE models especially. The 2.0 turbo is surprisingly quick and efficient (28-30 hwy). Stock tires are just ok, but easily upgraded to sticky more quiet rubber (Potenza RE 760's do well in FL)
Nothing compares to the feeling of the wind whipping your hair back as you cruise in a well-built convertible. Well, almost nothing—the feeling of getting a great deal on your vehicle purchase is definitely a close second. You can enjoy both of these awesome sensations at the same time by selecting a high-quality convertible that sells for less than $20,000.
