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


Just got rid of my brand new(when I bought it) 2006 Auto Beetle convertible and I am relieved. Powertrainwise everything was great, but I just wanted to forewarn anyone that you will have lots of small problems. And off warranty I am sure these problems will cost $$$. Let's just say an oil change was $80-120. Over a 2 year period I added that it cost me over $400 in oil changes and PM. The dealership was a rip-off and the only reason I had the oil changed there was I ALWAYS had something to have fixed, including the conv. top not coming back up. I can go on. I traded it in with a broken headlight! Anyway I bought a new car with PM included. The beetle is nice if it is not your only!

Best Features

Cute. Very simple and fun to drive. Fairly good gas mileage. Easy to wash! Nice headroom. Lots of little extras and safety features. The clock and Temp. display was useful

Worst Features

Better quality! Bumper to bumper like 100,000 miles! Easier headlight removal!
