2006 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
In a word the 2006 Volkswagen Beetle 2.5 is FUN! The new 5-cylinder engine has great pick-up and the Tiptronic transmisson is smooth and responsive. I bought the car for my wife as her grocery getter but I honestly enjoy just as much has she does. Being that our first car as a married couple was a '73 Beetle we had to finally get one. Mid-life crisis...no way, it is a great car. The smiles and waves you get, not just from other Beetle owners, but from other drivers are awesome.
Package 2, leather heated seats, Tiptronic transmission, exterior styling. German engineering is worth every penny.
I want the VW designers to put the little chrome lift handle with push button latch release back on the trunk lid! Lets go retro!
