Second vehicle and probably the last. Bought a Volvo first, then the Beatle. While the concept is great, the work force is even better! The missing link to all this is the cars themselves. Both turned out to be complete lemons. Great idea, great people, poor product.
This is my second VW New Beetle. I bought a convertible this time around. I've had my first New Beetle since 1999 and it is still going strong. It's such a joy to drive and so easy to park. My daughter is driving it now in college, so I purchased another one for myself in January. I'll have to wait until spring to put the top down. The New Beetle is fun and cute, but it is not a luxury car. I definitely feel and hear the road, but I also feel like I'm in control and that I'm driving a sports car. My husband and son are both well over 6 feet tall and they have plenty of head and leg room. Amazingly, there's plenty of storage room with the back seat down in my first New Beetle; not so in the convertible, though. Overall, I'm very pleased.
Fun Car to own and use

Economical to run...suits my style-mainly used at the beach or at home to make appointments and about-town errands...fun to put the top down on a sunny day and take a drive !
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.
