Bug is fun, but not practical

2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
My husband bought me a 2001 turbo Beetle for Mother's Day. Although it's been great fun, having to get out of the car and pull up the seat every day, several times a day, to let our daughter out of the back seat quickly becomes a drag -- as does the five- speed manual stick. The performance has been good, although we had repeated problems with the ignition. The car would just turn over, and then die. This happened fairly frequently, but of course, not at the dealership. They didn't repair it. I'm trading it in for a VW Passat wagon.
Favorite Features
Fun look, responsive drive.
Suggested Improvements
Very poor visibility when backing out of a parking stall!! Black cloth interior is awful - always looks dirty and collects dust.
