Third Beetle I've owned, and all have been superb vehicles. All were bought brand new, and kept trading up. Have had this current Silver Turbo model for 8 years and have never had any serious problems with it. It is used over the last 4 years as a daily driver and between its traction in the winter and its speed/pickup in the summer, the vehicle is probably one of the best ones out there for the dollar. Maintenance is done on the vehicle per specs, and outside of a couple of door dings by jerks in parking lots, the car looks and runs as new. Probably the best value for the dollar car we've ever bought and owned.
Interior lay out is close to perfect. Everything is visible and close at hand. The power and torque of the vehicle is more than expected, and is extremely fun to drive.
More cushioning in the seating. Better placed cup holders. Shorter dash. Larger wheels.
