2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
so far I like the car. The car handles well and is fun to drive. It is good in the snow. The fuel mileage is not impressive. I got around 26 mpg in mixed driving. There are a lot of rattles when driving over potholes. I bought the car for the fun factor. I'm waiting for the spring so I can put the top down. Also I plan on wintering in the sun-belt starting next year so I bought the convertible. I hope gas prices do not rise a lot more. To early for a fair reliability assesment
handles well. plenty of exterior room in the front.
make the diesel engine convertible available in the U.S. , or improve the gas mileage of your other beetles.
