2012 Volkswagen Beetle: I Like Driving It

May 21, 2012

I'd always been reluctant to drive a VW Beetle, mostly because of its previous incarnation with bud vase. I had a neighbor who decorated her red one with black dots to make it look like a lady bug. Yes, really. Cringe.

But the new manned-up Beetle is fun. Guys dig it. I see them looking. And I've had a few ask me about it.

It has a spunky turbo engine, makes a pleasing sound, has a comfortable interior, solid steering and feels secure through turns. I like a car that can handle a curve. And it's in an accessible price range.

Have you driven the new 2012 Beetle?
