2007 Volkswagen New Beetle Triple White 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


The car is beautiful and performs well in the warm weather. It is much better on fuel than my Jeep Wrangler. It really makes my wife happy and I like that. The problem is that the windows have to open (when the handle is pulled) to open the door. If it gets below 20 degrees, the windows won't open. That means that you can't get in, and if you finally do, you can't close the door or the glass will break. Because of the security VW voids the warranty if you install an aftermarket remote starter and they do not offer one.

Best Features

Doors open and close in warm weather. Wife isn't angry about the car in summer. No paying for additional garage space or storage spring through fall. I do love how it looks and operates when the windows are not frozen.

Worst Features

Make a remote start. Design a top that the windows don't need to move to open and close the door.
