2006 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)

Review

As cute as this car is, I can't explain how horrible the last 11 months have been with it. With my two previous cars we had zero problems, I suppose I made up for all that time with my Beetle. Thankfully, there have been no major mechanical problems. However, random reflectors have just fallen off, and if I'm lucky, both turn signals work. The seats could be more comfortable, and it's difficult to adjust the angle with the round "knobs." I don't drive much at all and I fill up two times a week. My car gets terrible gas mileage. I'll be selling the car before it's a year old.

Favorite Features

The aux. jack for an MP3 player.

Suggested Improvements

The front cup holder placement is awful. I can't fit a small drink in there if I have a passenger. What a waste of space. The gas mileage is horrible, nowhere NEAR the estimate. I can't sell this car fast enough.
