Fun the Second Time Around
By steven kadsand on


2006 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


This is the second Beetle that my wife and I have owned and we enjoy the fun and preformance that it offers. The 2.5L engine has as much punch as the 1.8 turbo that we had the first time around did without the turbo lag.

Best Features

My favorite features include how the engine has cam drive chains instead of the belt drives and we like the new cup holder locations. The iPod connecter is handy also.

Worst Features

Put the turbo on the 2.5L engine or better yet supercharge it so you don't get the turbo lag and get some more fun colors like some kind of lavender (for my wife'). Our previous Beetle was Blue Vortex. The color was was awesome. We hated to get rid of it, but the salsa red caught my wife's eye.
