  Love the styling, would like more reliability.

Best Reason to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Exterior styling
You can't deny the styling of the Beetle is distinctive and fun. The car makes me smile.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Reliability & durability
I bought this car as a "Certified Used". I replaced the main computer twice in the first 3 months. I have replaced 02 sensors every year, sometimes up to 3 a year. Repairs are expensive and required often.

Other Reasons to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Handling, Front seat room

  The Beetle, das auto. Love at first sight, even more after several rides.
A member in Brazil

Best Reason to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Exterior styling
Exterior styling is ofcourse a matter of personal preferrence, but i like it a lot. It still has unmistakingly the basic shapes of the old beetle, but it isnow molded into a modern and sporty shape. From whichever angle you look at it, its just perfect.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Rear seat room & comfort
I love my Beetle, but the rear seat legspace is not so good. For me its no problem at all, since normally only my wife and i drive the car, but when you normally have to drive with 4 adults, it can become crampy at the back. If the driver and front passenger are not that tall, the rear legspace is quite good. Even the headspace is ok.

Best Reason to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Feature availability
I am pleased with the smoothness and how the convertible top works. GOOD sound system you cannot go wrong. The only problem with the convertible is you give up some automatic features, headlights homelink, ect. But is wife's car and my Audi just confuses her. So perfect for someone who likes simple car. Good speed and trans seems smooth. 3000 miles and no problems yet

Best Reason Not to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Audio & nav systems
Nav system a waste, sound system does not mute when Nav is giving directions. WTF

  50's Beetle or Bust
A member in Virginia, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Exterior styling
Recently purchased the 50's model Beetle. I couldn't be more pleased with the appearance of the car! I've owned it less than a week and I receive complements on it everytime I've driven it.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Rear seat room & comfort
The back seat, if you could really call it that, leaves a lot to be desired. Maybe another 3 in. That being said it fits a car seat with my 6' frame in the front seat ahead of it, so it gets the job done. Once the top goes down the interior space seems adequate.

Tall people can NOT sit in the back seat. If you go around a turn they bump their heads on the side of the vehicle

Best Reason to Buy the Volkswagen Beetle: Exterior styling
Unique retro styling that reminds you of the Beetles of yesteryear, but is fresh, even after being on the market for 10 years. It stands out in the crowd!
