Nimble handling, chic style and VW's engineering has not let us down in the 2 years we've driven it. Warning! Replacement of body panels may be extremely delayed. We had to wait two months for a new rear right panel - from Japan - to replace our dented end. It kept our New Beetle in the shop all that time.
Style, driving and handling.
Easily breakable plastic switches and fixtures lower tone of interior. All those cup holders are overkill, and veer to the cheesy.
