When the weather is good---top down but when the weather is bad--top up. It has lots of spunk and decent gas mileage. I get a lot of compliments on the looks and style.
Sporty, fun, classic!
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 always loved the Bettle retro design and the quality of VW interior. I drove golf and passat station wagon for the last 15 years. So I went for the Beetle this time. I am greatly disappointed! If you are short and with small feet (61/2, not that small!) you will have hard time adjusting to the break and gas pedals. Shifting to break takes longer, as the break is further to the left and is very high comparing to the gas pedal. Since I am 5'3" i struggle to have comfortable position in a deep seat, and reach to pedals in the same time. I have to drive with the pillow behind my back!! And I don't see well out of the car! Review mirrors are designed to be pretty but they are too big and they blocked my view on several occasions.
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.
