The Cutest Car on the Road but...
By colorado1974 on


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


We, like 1,000 other VW owners are filing for lemon law this year. Of the few months we have had it, most of the time has been spent in the dealership's service driveway instead of ours. The windows randomly go down, the front logo peeled off, the starter doesn't work all the time, the radio quit, the top broke twice, there is a metallic sound from the front and the kicker is that I am only getting 20 mpg at best. The window sticker said I'd do much better. Everytime I get the car back it is fixed but after a couple weeks, more problems seem to set it back. Ugh.

Best Features

It's really really cute, fun to drive and gets attention.

Worst Features

Improve the quality, quality, quality, quality, and gas mileage, gas mileage, gas mileage.
