I've had this car in the shop three
times for rattling in the interior.
The hatch has been removed twice to
fix it. When the car was built a
screw was left in the dashboard which
started to scratch against metal.
After they removed the dash to fix it,
they failed to hook up all the vents
properly. There is still rattling in
the doors, but I have given up that
they will fix it. This will be my 1st
and only VW. Where it that quality
German engineering VW boasts about?
Not in this car. Buyer beware!
The best thing about this car is the
A/C, it worked real good on a trip to
Phoenix, AZ in the summer with 122F
Better quality standards in the
assembly of the vehicle.
Very roomy, tons of leg room for long legged
passanger. The set adjustments are the best for
men and woman drivers. The eyeglass holder on
the top is very handy as well. Plenty of pick up and
options even on the GL models. Very good buy for
your money. You wont be disappointed.
The old hand grabs on the sides, and grab bar on
the front dash. Plus all the modern tech of tadays
Can'r really think of everything, I love the design.
I thought it was too cute for me. But
it's just plain cool man! It's a
classic and I can't believe I own it! I
can't stop looking back after I park
it. My budget was between a full eq.
Corolla and the simplest Beetle...
Corolla or Beetle?... Ordinary or Extra-
ordinary? The decission was easy.
Very leathery leatherette! Nice CD/MP3
Player (standard!!!) Oh, my favorite:
SOLAR PANEL to avoid discharge of
batteries! SOLAR??!!! Oh and the remote
controller, it's very 007ish...
POWER! Needs POWER! As a reviewer of a
mag wrote: acceleration is "lethargic".
Oh, and why a flower vase? I'd rather
have a compass or a cellphone holder
instead. And even the GL should come
with alloy wheels >:(
