This was a good value for the money. It had just over 10,000 miles on it and is loaded. It has every option we could need except for Homelink and Navigation. A spare clicker and Waze met those needs. The car is fun to to drive and the Turbo Charged 2.0 L has plenty of power. If you are not careful when starting off, you can easily spin the tires. We traded another popular 2 seater convertible for this one and while we did not sacrifice the fun factor, we gained in the "comfort" factor. We are averaging in the mid 20's on miles per gallon for city.
I love my new Beetle. It is bright red and gets a lot of attention. It's nice to really DRIVE a car after having a Ford for so long. I wish I had bought this car sooner.
The gas mileage is very decent, in the low 20's. I got 300 miles on one tank.
The car is really spacious, because the back seats come down, so I can plop my bike in the back, no problem.
At first, I thought something was wrong with the car because of the strange noises, but I realized the sunroof was not exactly "aerodynamic". This is a 2012 and Im not sure the sunroof even working 100% at this point!
In terms of repairs and such, I have no comment because I havent had it long enough.
There isnt much I would change on the car. The pleather seats are probably durable, but when it's very hot here, you'll burn your tush to bits. The key is ridiculous and bulky.
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.
