I bought a new Beetle as a gift for myself and i really love my car. Its peppy around town and gives me great mileage. I do have some gripes though (interior lighting) and automatic transmission. There are a few other gripes but they arent that serious. I do love the handling and the visibility at nighttime. Overall I love my car but i dont think i would buy one again.
I love the engine (turbo. I also love the styling, looks, moonroof, leather, heated seats, key fob( it looks really cool) and all the options it comes with.
I dislike the automatic transmission( it works to slow with my driving style) there are practically no lights on in the car, NO TRUNK SPACE, so this makes it a non vacation car!=
