Loved It! Hated It!
By HeatherO on


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


The Aquarius Blue New Beetle with the black convertible top was my dream car so you can imagine how happy I was when I finally bought one. I had the car 3 days before the headlight went out the first time. So it went into the shop...for a total of 6 times over a two year period...for the same headlight! I also had power windows that randomly went down, alarms and lights that went off for no reason and brake lights that sometimes worked, sometimes not. I cannot tell you how disappointed I was by this car. I loved the way it looked. Loved the convertible. But VW completely let me down.

Best Features

Adorable. Fun to drive especially with the top down.

Worst Features

Fix the headlight problems (I have heard this complaint from MANY Beetle owners). Fix the electrical system. Stand behind your vehicle and don't charge a fortune for service.
