VW Beetle ~ Still Alive & Kickn'
By Azure on


2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


It's simple. In the 60's and 70's I loved my various VW Bugs, so why not try an updated version? I really feel at home in this car, and I suppose at least in part, that has to do with the fact that my comparatively free-living past is elicited in the experience of driving the new convertible Beetle! (This is also my first VW convertible!) Great gas mileage and most of all the front wheel drive is a welcome change, which at first I feared would ruin it. Also, I strongly suggest spending a little extra for the *turbo.* I have had it with & without. Trust me ~ the extra cash spent is well worth it!

Best Features

turbo, look, nostalgic *feel*

Worst Features

More trunk space in convertible is needed. Pouches on backs of seats and other additional storage space required. Tape & CD player should be included in all models. (It only comes with the CD player!)
