Low Quality but cute

Vehicle2008 Volkswagen New Beetle S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
ReviewWe purchased a 2008 "S" with automatic about 3 months ago for my wife, with the intent of passing it on to our daughter next year. I was reluctant to purchase this car based on customer reviews of previous model years. I should have listened, because this piece of junk has been in the shop 4 times to fix various squeaks and rattles and we haven't even had the first oil change yet. So far gas mileage has been in the 22-24 mpg range, mostly suburban driving. While it's within the EPA estimates, it's still low for a car this small. Did I mention that it requires synthetic oil and a filter not carried at any quick lube establishments?
Best FeaturesIt's a cute car and my wife gets lots of compliments on it.
Worst FeaturesImprove the fuel economy and build quality. Seats in the "S" model provide no lumbar support.
