Bought my VW Convertible new and have owned it a year now.
Have had multiple window issues (motors and seals) and also a tire issue (one bad tire).
VW needs to install better quality parts that do not break as easily, because going back and forth with the dealer is not only time consuming, but also frustrating for everyone involved.
My car originally had Continental tires, which were so so, but one tire was bad and took a while to diagnose through a road force balance.
The faulty tire was subsequently replaced, but I recently decided to just buy Michelin's and not have to worry about anymore future problems.
Now after multiple balancing and alignments, it drives much better.

I had no expectations going into the VW dealership. After driving a Mini Cooper S convertible for seven years I didn't think I would be impressed with the new Turbo Beetle convertible. Wow! I was surprised... Great acceleration, incredible comfort for four adults and superb sound was what I needed to move me out of my Mini into a car that could comfortably accommodate my family. My day starts with a big smile getting into my car. Having driven many different convertibles I can say their are none at this price point that offer the level of performance and space found in the new Turbo Beetle. My entire family loves this car!
