ReviewI was interested in this car because of the retro design and the performance of the turbo engine. It's an eye-turner car; however, I've been having continual problems with this Beetle. With less than 30K miles, I went through two transmissions, new A/C unit, and defective power windows (suddenly fell inside door and broke). I'm not impressed with VW and was really disappointed with this car. It's not reliable and I'm anxious to sell it before the warranty expires!
Best FeaturesI like the design of the car and the handling around corners...terrific tires!
Worst FeaturesThe turbo has considerable lag. Cup holders have a poor design/location. Transmission is very slow to engage (I'll roll backwards 5-10 feet in drive before it'll engage and go forward). Needs more head room in the back seat for adults & better side mirrors due to terrible blind spots.
