The best car I ever drove at Carmax was a BMW, they are amazing but out of my budget. This is the forth Beetle, the first three were yellow My first one was when I was in the Army, Stationed at Fort Sill OKLA from 1962-1963. It had a sun roof, stick shift, no gas gage, when it went out there was a lever near your left foot and that gave u two more gallons. The trunk was in front and the engine in back but fun to drive. I paid 11 cent a gallon during a gas strick I bought this car at The Torrance carmax and it drives great. The gas miles is 18 mpg, not 20 in town I havent tried it out on the road yet but Im sure it will get around thirty. I will probably get another car in a year or two and someone will have fun driving it.
I had a Beatle in 1964 & have wanted a New Beetle since they came out. I finally purchased my 2008 Beetle in 2012. I had it one year and had a terrible accident. There was NO doubt in my mind that I would buy another one-and I did (2010 model). This car is so big inside-very deceiving when you see it from the outside. It rides so smooth, I love the fold down seats if I have to put something big and long in the trunk. And hey, it's just so darn cute!
Ok, I bought the car two months ago, but refused the flower vase. I've owned a 02 Z3, a Solstice GXP and the bug. It's not a sports car and nobody said it was. After five back surgeries I can tell you the Beetle is the easiest to get in and out of. Mine was a lease return with 21,000 miles on it. This car is fun to drive and has plenty of pep. I keep reading it gets 20mpg in the city. I drive it a little hard and have been getting 24.? mpg in town everytime I fill up. Highway has averaged 28.4 mpg-with the air on in the thin air in Colorado. It's not a luxury car but it is value for the money mostly. Report say it holds its value. Judging by the ads and the fact the 2010 year model is the last convertible on the old frame-I think it's a good buy. Did I mention it was fun to drive?
