A smile everyday


Absolutely nothing!

It's still a very new car.

Passenger door creaks when swinging so needs to be checked at next (first) service.

General Comments:

Car is very well balanced, the TDi is economical, very responsive & in in my opinion handles better than the Golf it's based on.

The 2 back seats are actually useful as such for 2 adults.

Getting into the Beetle ALWAYS puts a smile on my face and driving her keeps it there.

The wind vent makes a big difference make sure you get one on a cabrio.

You can get cheaper cars in the same segment, but none are as fun.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
