I bought this car for fun, power & speed, & it
delivers . However, there are drawbacks,
some which aren't a problem for me (small
cupholders), & some that are, especially the
lack of sun protection on the side windows.
Sunbelt residents beware. A really big
disappointment - I just got back from a long
trip that revealed APPALLING road noise!
Forget using your nifty monsoon sound
system unless you crank it up full blast,
forget using your cellphone, forget a
conversation with your travelling companion
at any level lower than shouting. Bad, bad,
Very nimble, responsive handling. Serious
Soundproofing, please! Visors or shades on
the side windows. Rear window wiper.
Just got the new Lifestyle package in
Blue Lagoon. The blue and black leather
seats are awesome and the turbo eats up
these hills in Austin. Owner of a 1972
beetle and it is amazing how far these
cars have come.
I HAVE NEVER HAD SO MUCH FUN DRIVING!
My Uni Red Bug with the Lifestyle
Package leather interior is better than
any other car I've driven. The
performance is of the highest quality
and the Turbo engine "kicks butt." My
soon-to-be 17-yr.-old son complained
about the car at first, but once he
drove it, he was hooked. He'll go
absolutely anywhere with me as long as
he gets to drive. The car is sporty,
comfortable, fun, roomy, sassy, and
there's a surprising amount of room in
Sunroof, lifestyle package, turbo
I'm not too fond of the cup holders for
large drinks, i.e. iced coffees, etc.
My New Beetle has been absolutely
wonderful. I have driven sports cars
all my life, and I don't feel that they
truly reflected who I am. They were
fast, not very safe, and gas guzzlers.
My new beetle however, is reliable,
environmentally friendly, and very very
airbbag for the driver and the passenger
airbags in the sides
good gas mileage
low emissions vehicle

CD PLAYER--it would be nice for a CD
player to be in the car already when
you drive it off the lot, although min
came with a free MP3 player
