GR8 Bug Convertible

Vehicle
2009 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5L 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Review
I hesitated to buy a new beetle for a two reasons - first because it was not Germany made. Then I learned that Honda's are from Ohio, so that was silly. Second, what would the resale value be (now who cares, I love it). I have the Harvest Moon Beige with a Beige Top and Tan interior, in my opinion the most sophisticated looking. One issue I have is keeping it showroom perfect. The first big wind in a parking lot allowed the door to hit a car parked next to it, not unusually hard, but enough to ding my door (the other car had no damage). This made me feel the metal/paint finish was inferior to other cars I have owned. I may get a daily driver and try to keep it for weekend fun!
Favorite Features
Monsoon sound with satellite, slap stick automatic, color combination, one switch for all four windows to go down.
Suggested Improvements
Locking arm rest, TDI option, More accessiories, better fuel efficiency or a larger tank.

Did I read correctly...that this vehicle is not German made but by Honda?
