2007 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I have owned by Beetle for 7 months and have had no problems. I love this car. At first the look impressed me the most. I finally found a 5-speed, green model which was hard to come by. The way this car handles is great. It hugs the road and is the ultimate road-trip car. The fifth cylinder can really be felt on a steep incline and the cold-weather package has helped me through many a snowy morning! It handles in 6 inches of snow, no problem, and the sunroof makes the summer weather even better! If you are looking for a fun car with a low-maintenance feel and features then this is the car for you!
Body style: people will stop you on the street to ask about the car! Interior features: ample space, stereo sound, heated seats, dash style, trunk space is great.
This car needs extended visor panels for the brutal sunlight and tinting the windows is a must for summer! Better gas mileage would be nice but is average not poor. The trunk is difficult to close and should be remodeled to avoid dents in the trunk panel and to improve function.
