This car is simply a great value
The motor uses a little bit of oil (approximately 1/2 liter per 1000 kilometers). Typical for a Volkswagen.
The Volkswagen New Beetle is a great value for your money. I purchased the car used at a Volkswagen dealer, and consequently the car has a 2 year, 40000 kilometer warranty from the date I purchased it.
The car also has many desirable features, such as: heated seats and mirrors, power windows and locks, cruise control, tilt/telescoping steering, and air conditioning with pollen filter just to name a few.
As for the engine, it has been in many Volkswagen models for numerous years. It is an extremely durable engine that I know will last for many years to come. The 2 liter is not known for being a powerful engine, but manages to get the job done.
The car has a very pleasing suspension that compares with any luxury sedan, and has great German handling.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
