As a previous VW Passat owner of 11 years and a 20 year owner of a Toyota Camry that still runs like day it was purchased and having not experienced the issues of dealing with a used vehicle, I am saddened to learn of the increasing problems occurrring at the 3 year stage.
I love my Bug!
2013 Volkswagen BeetleKelly Brantley - Moore Haven, FL12/27/2015
Love my little Bug, the gas mileage is great. The convertible top is just awesome, just a push of a button and it is down.
I had a Jeep soft top before and taking the top down was a chore and of course "no trunk."
So far, I have no complaints with my Bug.
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.
