After reading about all the problems on the New Beetle Convertible, I had to review mine. After nearly 20,000 miles it's been flawless except for a turn signal issue that the dealer addressed. Dealer told us to ALWAYS use the top cover or risk having the top torn away at highway speeds.

More lumbar support in seats. Better top cover. Sun visors are useless.
Ok, I'm a french canadian and I will
get to the point about children
safety. This car is not legal in
Canada for children seat because it
doesn't permit the installation of a
top (third) point anchor. We learn
that after the purchase. VW said that
the car is equiped with LATCH system,
but it doesn't (the third point is not
there at the top.) For that, this car
should be 0/10. The children safety is
the top priority of any car builder. I
plan the get a lawyer until VW find a
solution. I will go to the media. For
the rest of the the car itself, it is
Turbo, front seat, ESP, shifter.
Children safety (3 points, LATCH + the
top anchor). This is necessary in
I bought the convertible for my wife
on our anniversary. She and I love
the car! It puts a smile on our
faces. It is not a car for an
introvert. Everyone stares and smiles
as we drive by. The turbo is the way
to go. My GLX has every option
including the wind blocker. It is
awfully quick as well. I can't go on
enough about our love for this car.
It holds it's own and is the love of
our stable which includes an Audi A6
2.7T, an Audi A4, and a Cadillac STS.
