Why the 2005 Volkswagen New Beetle?

Why Not the 2005 Volkswagen New Beetle?

Past personal experience

Pesky, but expensive problems in first 4 years: * passenger seat release lever snapped off * airbag warning light came on at 1yr old, repaired, then came back on 5 days later * boot stopped opening - took to 3 x VW repairers - nobody can remedy...?!

Cargo capacity

Small boot with tiny opening - cannot accommodate large suitcases


Since brand-new purchase has been quite squeaky at soft-top connection across the front.
