I loved the way it handled in the snow. In Colorado, there were several big snow storms that my car would perform in so well. Once, as I climbed a very steep hill, passing by all the other 4X4's and big rigs, that were supposed to be so superior in the snow, I kept patting the dash board of my little bug, congratulating it for passing all of them on our way up the hill! It was the best car I've ever had for bad road conditions!
Once, after a very bad snow, a tree branch fell on the hood of my bug, and put a large dent in it. I opened the trunk, and pushed hard, and the whole dent popped right out, just like new! Not many cars are able to "un-dent" themselves!
