I have found my New Beetle to be a
solid performer. Pickup is adequate and
the ride is very comfortable for a
small car. Interior room is
surprisingly spacious and the
instruments/controls are well laid out.
Power windows and mirrors have worked
without difficulty. My only problem has
been AM reception on the radio which
the dealer says is in the radio itself.
Head room, solid feel, safety features
like ABS brakes and side-impact
airbags, and leather seats.
Cupholders need to be relocated to
accomodate tall containers;outside
mirrors need to be relocated so they
don't block view of curbs during turns.
