I love driving my bug, for the most part. It is small and compact, so if you are coming from a car or SUV it will take getting used to the smaller quarters, but it scoots around town easily, fits into parking spots easily and is economical on gas! The cons: driving a stick shift in bumper to bumper traffic is the pits and since I have the convertible, there is a blind spot for me when trying to back out of parking spaces or make left turns from forked roads. If you have kids and need space of car seats, this is not the car for you. But, if you love the drive a sporty car to scoot around town this is a fantastic, reliable car!
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!
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.
