Some Folks Just Don't Understand
By CZKid on
2009 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5L 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
My bride wanted a convertible, and was about to graduate with a Doctorate of Ministry at 60+. we're both over 6', and we both needed a fun ride. I drove professionally for VW & Porsche in my college days while studying engineering, so I know my vehicles. If you want folks to smile when they see you, and enjoy comfort, reliability, and just plain fun while out get the convert. As a former QC puke, I can find no problems with finish nor performance. My straight laced bride goes nuts driving the car because it's so much fun. So 2 can't fit in the back, so what? So it doesn't have a huge trunk.. so what? It has everything that two old folks needed and more. Try it, you'll like it
Head/Leg Room for front seats, visibility, ease of top operation, and comfort! But most of all everyone smiles when they see you. it's nice!!
VW blew it when they didn't provide the diesel as an option. Too late now boys. But think about it in the future.
