Better than the Last...

2006 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I used to own a 2001 Beertle. This one, a 2006 model, is much nicer all the way around. Plus it doesn't have the disappearing oil, where I would find myself a half a quart low after a couple of months.
The automatic windows are great, the pick up is great, and it's fun to drive. Its styling is sharp.
The trunk doesn't close without a hard slam. Also, this car is squirrely, it car jumps forward. After 6,000 miles I'm still not used to it. The Tiptronic transmission is wierd as well. I guess after 20 + years of driving a traditional stick shift it's hard to make the change. Overall though this car is a great ride!
