Nickel and Dime you into the poor house

2001 Volkswagen Beetle Investment Guy - Chicago 12/19/2006

We bought a 2001 Beetle with 1.8L Turbo in the spring of 2004. Since then, it has been in the shop at least four times. Twice for various engine sensors ($200-300 bill each time) once for a failed water pump and timing belt at only 50k miles ($700 bill) and now for a broken seat and arm-rest. Also, the black paint is peeling on the hood (we're not going to bother repairing cosmetic issues). Also, the headlights seem to burn out with great frequency and the tape deck doesn't quite work right. So for a car with only 60k miles on it, I am disappointed at how quickly it is wearing-out. Performance wise it handles very well and has a lot of pep off the line. I was pleasantly surprised at the "driveability" of this "economy" car. The leather interior is of excellent quality and the heated seats are a nice luxury to have in the winter. In all, I have mixed feelings. I enjoy driving this car but the quality of the plastic and electronic items is poor. I would advise others against buying one for this reason.

Not safe for shorter people!

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Marina Francelj - Chevy Chase, MD 10/13/2015

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.

Fun, fun, fun!

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Barbara Lardner - Albuquerque, NM 06/30/2016

The VW Beetle is fun to drive and just my size! I can reach the glove box and adjust the passenger seat from the driver's seat. There's plenty of storage and I love the sun roof. I enjoy the 5 speed manual transmission and GPS and Bluetooth are real bonuses!
