Due to a long drive to work and the
fact that mom had a Beetle when I was
a kid, I now own one too.
I have had nothing but complete
satisfaction with my Beetle so far.
I'm averaging about 39 mpg. Some
people are put off by diesel due to
the smell and I gotta say, it's a
different smell, but it is not as bad
as what you might think. It is a bit
louder, but again, not that of a semi.
For anyone thinking about it, I would
highly recommend taking one out for a
drive and talking to your local dealer
(or unlocal, I drove over 75 miles for
mine) and doing some research. What
it will save me in fuel cost a year,
will make a couple of car payments.
Where should I start? I just love the
car: fun to drive and very cute.
I have to agree with the old standard
here, the cup holders have been
improved, but still not the greatest.
But it is a small car, if I wanted cup
holders, I would have bought a van!
