I love my Beetle. I have always driven Cherolets, but I love my VW Bug. It is amazingly fun to drive and looks great...BUT...it has major paint issues. I have the Harvest Moon (Cream) colored Beetle. My front bumper has been in the shop six times in under a year's time! It has been very disappointing.
I love the convertible top and great style.
Fix the terrible paint quality and terribe cup holders, espceially their location. Everything plastic has broken at least once also!
I love my bug! It has plenty of power, is easy to drive, and handles well. I get plenty of postive comments from others when we stop. The cup holder will not allow a 12oz drink can to fit without flipping it out toward the passenger seat though.

This car is fun to drive. It's easy on the wallet when it comes to the gas pump. It is roomy enough for two adults or two adults and two kids under 5 feet tall (rear seat). I have only had it for three weeks, but it seems like a good choice for a sub-compact. If they would've had the turbo diesel, we would've gotten it.
Very bad visibility when backing up and when checking the road behind you.
