I am a PROUD new owner of a used 2004 VW New Beetle convertable.
I LOVE IT!
So far so good.
I have 'dressed' her up with lashes and lipstick, she is fast, smooth, comfortable, roomy, and so very nice to look at.
I have read the reviews about this cute car, and I see that a few have had issues, maybe the issues have been taken care of before I bought it, I did have to take her in as the check engine light was on, they fixed it, and she is running smooth.
there also was a severed wire under the driver seat, fixed that and now the airbag light is off.
I hope to keep her a good 10 to 15 years, and trade her up for another.
