2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I love my chick car. I look good in it. Taking the top down is awesome in the warm weather, and it drives well in the winter too. It has impressive head-room and I can almost stand up on the floor of the backseat. The trunk is tiny, but who cares? Put your groceries on the passenger seat. I've had it for about a year now and have had no mechanical issues at all, gas efficiency is pretty average, and it's overall pretty low maintenance.
Taking the top down is simple and it's ease encourages you to do it anytime the temp reaches above 65 degrees. The built-in thermometer lets you know when you've hit the prefered temps!
Put anything on the passenger seat and it will punish you by buzzing as a reminder to put your seatbelt on. Glad to know that my car has such great safety technology, but my laptop does not need to be buckled in. Also, I wish the console and armrest were a tad bigger. Purchasing the boot isn't necessary.
