2008 Volkswagen New Beetle SE 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


Bought a beautiful black with cream interior SE model a few weeks ago. Purchased this mainly for my daughters to drive, although I have to admit the old man likes it too! Haven't had a VW for a number of years, but they were always a fun car to drive, and this convertible is no exception. The SE comes with a power top, so makes it much easier for raising and lowering the roof. The car has plenty of pep and the Tiptronic 6 speed manual / automatic transmission is a pleasure. I also like being able to set it to "sport mode", where the transmission holds the shift pattern to higher RPM setting. Good handling as a touring vehicle and sure stopping brakes. Great little car!

Best Features

Tiptronic 6 speed transmission is great, power top, comfortable seats. This car came with a beautiful Monsoon stereo, which included a CD player as well as satellite (Sirius) radio. Have a Sirius satellite radio in another car, and got this hooked up right away - great sound!

Worst Features

When the top is up, there is a big blind spot at the right rear, but I guess with the convertible mechanism there was some compromise with visibility. Otherwise - everything else is great on this car.
