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.
Blue sky above. Wind in what used to be my hair. Wind blocker actually works. 1.8 Turbo is strong!
More lumbar support in seats. Better top cover. Sun visors are useless.
