Loving It
By Mary Kilburn on


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


We enjoy the maneuverability of this car. Its spaciousness is surprising, as it will even accommodate two [7 and 11 y.o.] grandchildren in the back seat. It is a diesel and that gas is expensive and not always easily available. My husband insists it is VERY safe with the steel cage construction and side airbags. I still worry a bit and in bad weather [especially at night] and prefer to drive one of our more conventional, obviously heavier, autos.

Best Features

The maneuverability, ease of operation, spaciousness [yes - spaciousness], attractiveness, and style. This car offers great safety if the steel cage and side airbags make it so.

Worst Features

Make the headlight switch more obvious and the remote entry easier to operate on first try. Put it on stilts - or maybe super size tires would do it! The exterior's sleek design leaves nowhere to place any object [i.e. briefcase] on it when needing two hands free. The key sometimes "locks" when in park.
