Love This Car - Hate The Damn Windows
I am a three time bug owner starting with a type 1 "66. The VW bug has been well built (generally) and I have liked the philosophy of the design through the decades. They were originally built for function and became iconic and fun in simplicity.
Great compromise Car
Had this car 5 days will update later. 105 miles with approximately 5 gals used. I have been using it as a commuter car 20 miles average per day. 1/2 interstate the other Blvd/city driving. There is a driver side window issue. will not come up all the way all the time. It will work afar several attempts. Plan to take it back to the Dealer. Dealer was asked about the problem prior to purchased. However vaguely acknowledged it existed. The only problem...Yes. The 2.5L is a blast to drive good exceleration, large cabin for two, equipment works fine. I have bluetooth (easy to setup), iPod connectivity (works without instructions) and the radio sounds great (no Fender).
VW Knew about the Window problems
VW knew about the window problems, because the Convertible Bug had been plagued with them the entire run of the line. I traded in my 2004 Convertible Beetle for the new one because it seemed like the only way to fix the window problem once and for all. Now, here I am day one and I don't have my new car because it is back at the Dealership being "fixed". I'm lucky apparently because the Dealership I use has a great staff who really do their best to solve problems, but when the problem is the manufacturer... All I can say is avoid VW's. If anyone stops to ask me about the car, it isn't going to go well for the company.
More About This Model

Back in 1998, some two decades after the last air-cooled, rear-engined VW Beetle buzzed out of a U.S. showroom, it came back. Sort of. Reincarnated as the New Beetle, this new car looked similar to the original but otherwise was a completely different bug. It was basically a Golf platform with a modernized Beetle body atop it. But some things about the New Beetle bugged us, such as the half acre of dash top, the awkward sight lines around the windshield pillars and the skimpy rear passenger/cargo space. Then there was the name itself, which has made for some oxymoronic episodes disguised as used car ads. The 2012 Volkswagen Beetle puts what is now the old New Beetle behind it, and the result is a car that gets more respect from us.

Although we've previously sampled the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo, this time we drove the Beetle 2.5, which should be the volume seller. Though it won't raise the pulse rate of pure-bred car enthusiasts, this is not to say the five-banger Beetle isn't pleasant to drive. It handles itself well on serpentine stretches of asphalt, and provided you select the Sport mode for the automatic transmission, there's ample performance punch. A user-friendly cabin with comfortable seats and a supple ride round out its appeal as a daily driver.

Although the newest Beetle boasts some key improvements that broaden its appeal, we're not about to turn a blind eye to its similarly retro-styled rivals. Those looking for a more engaging drive would be better served by the Mini Cooper Clubman while those looking for maximum space efficiency should check out the Fiat 500, which offers similar rear legroom and maximum cargo space but in a package that's 30 inches shorter. They'll also provide considerably better fuel economy, an advantage of no small consequence these days.
