I'm in Love..! Could be a race car..

2007 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 PZEV 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)

Review

Love the Laser Blue color.!! This Beetle is much peppier than the old 2004 - 4 cylinder engine. Only drawback is when you drive fast you get 20 to 23 MPG in the city. The heated seats are the best new feature.! I wish the visors were wider or perhaps extended longer because they don't block side sun glare very well. The comfort is great, and the room is great. I have hauled a lot of stuff in this little car. My only other request is to make this car a hybrid. I have gotten 34 MPG highway using speed control. I beat an Austin Mini Cooper in a drag race and matched a Corvette for the first 50 yards, so this car is FAST.! Thanks VW for a car more fun than my 2004 New Beetle.!

Best Features

Heated seats, folding down back seat, sunroof/moonroof.

Worst Features

Could you make this a hybrid? Should be some way to extend the visors wider to block side of car sun glare which can be really bad..! Side panels below the window should not be painted, they are too easy to scratch, perhaps make them soft plastic instead, colored?
