2006 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


I used to own a 2001 Beertle. This one, a 2006 model, is much nicer all the way around. Plus it doesn't have the disappearing oil, where I would find myself a half a quart low after a couple of months.

Best Features

The automatic windows are great, the pick up is great, and it's fun to drive. Its styling is sharp.

Worst Features

The trunk doesn't close without a hard slam. Also, this car is squirrely, it car jumps forward. After 6,000 miles I'm still not used to it. The Tiptronic transmission is wierd as well. I guess after 20 + years of driving a traditional stick shift it's hard to make the change. Overall though this car is a great ride!
