2006 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Our 2006 Beetle convertible has been a pleasure to own. The comfort is excellent (I'm 6'2"), the handling is right on, the engine (2.5L 5 cyl) is very responsive and the transmission seems very smart (6 speed auto). The convertible top fits like a glove and is easy to operate. The car is a blast to drive with the top down. The subtle exterior styling changes for the 2006 are perfect and really set it apart from the older models. I wish my wife would let me drive it more.

The automatic window lowering an inch when the door is opened glitches sometimes and doesn't return to closed position.
