2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

After reading some of these reviews, I'm not surprised that people had a lot of problems with the automatic transmission. My second VW was an automatic and I had to replace the transmission at 60K miles. Instead of letting the lease run it's course, I got a great deal on my Bug Convertible. It's a manual transmission and have experienced NONE of the problems that my last VW had. The car is fun and sporty. Not too fast, but I drive like an old lady anyway. I also don't commute for work so my mileage is way low. I would recommend this car to anyone that's willing to buy manual, makes it even more fun.

Favorite Features

Convertible, all the way. Spend the extra cash and get the wind blocker and XM radio.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the seat handle. Mine has broken twice on the passenger side.
