ReviewWhat an amazing, fun little car. I have a TDI diesel,
with the Tiptronic transmission, and this is hands
down the most fun car I've ever driven. Out of the
gate mine has had a few minor hiccups (CD player
stopped playing CDs on the fourth day, airbag
system isn't working properly [diag. light]), but the
dealerships I've dealt with have been quick to
repair and cooperative. And, the fuel economy is
AMAZING! 400-500 miles on a tank of diesel is
"normal" for this car, and with some conservative
driving, I've pushed it to nearly 600. A worthy
successor to the "Beetle" name.
Best FeaturesIt's.. just.. so.. darn.. cute! MP3-capable CD player was a nice touch. Tiptronic transmission is the best of both worlds: automatic for the routine trips, but easy downshifting for hills.. or when I want to feel like I'm a teenager again. Oh, and chicks dig it.
Worst FeaturesThere is no place on the dashboard to really install any electronics, like a Sirius reciever or my iPod. Also, the cupholders are completely useless.. even a 16oz can of soda is difficult to get out. Also, the "default" wheels scratch way to easily.
