Great car but don't expect perfection
By Erin on


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


I have been driving my Beetle for about four months now and love it. It is my only car and has been great even on roadtrips, less then 500 miles. It is a little jumpy when you give it gas but has good pick up. The only problem I had was the front blinker coming out and the door molding popping up. BUT I was forewarned by reading up on the car before purchased so I wasn't too surprised. So don't expect a perfect car with great quality. I too had bad service at the VW dealer, not purchased from, and hope I don't need to go back anytime soon. The top down rocks and the little features make up for the cheesy interior. I am SO glad I didn't purchase an everyday Sebring. this car is great to drive does not have great quality.

Best Features

The appearance (newer look), windblocker, speakers, heated seats, windows auto up and down, gas mileage, display, storage under stereo, and integrated blinkers on mirrors,

Worst Features

Tthe trunk closing needs improving, better quality contol, maybe auto seats, auto up down all windows.
