2008 Volkswagen New Beetle S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)

Review

My wife's 08 beetle has been pretty great. its a fairly smooth riding car (an impressive feat considering its based of the mkIV platform and thus has a torsion beam rear suspension) and is a a great long distance cruiser. the stock tires are not the greatest and in typical stock fashion has grown loud and tiresome, but the car itself is very quiet, peppy with great low end tq, and style my wife loves.(and i actually don't mind it either.)

Favorite Features

great shade of red, solid tuetonic driving experience, great highway cruiser, good range on gas tank, fairly inexpensive to maintain, decent steering feel, low end torque, engine growl.

Suggested Improvements

armrest location, cup holder placement is slightly weird, a chassis this stout and that weighs this much should get better rear seat side impact ratings. (maybe actual airbags back there? only a big deal if you carry people in the back, in our case thats a no.)
