My first car and I intend to keep her till I'm gray
You Know what Nothing major! I've had her (yes her, she's called chaos) for over a year now and nothing cataclysmic, not a Thing... yet... aside from some rust damage that is, (Alas, to be expected in New England)
I need to get the Mile counter thing fixed.
A little slow.
Not very "wind resistant"
Poor heat, no A/C, or defroster.
Lets hope none of the bug's bugs happen.
Has stalled out for no reason.
All this among other minor glitches.
I figured on these kinds of things going in to it, so no big deal. This stuff gives the car character anyhow.
My uncle restores Volkswagens for a living, so he was able to get me a good deal on one he restored him self; That and taught me what to look out for and how to fix it should it's inner demon come to life...
She handles well in the Ice and snow, but the wind…well…it gives life some excitement.
Beats the “new beetle” in every way.
Has more character than most new cars.
Requires little gas/oil.
I was able to fix it! A no nothing 18 year old! Thank you John Muir.
I can lift it!
People have actually asked me if it was for sale! Nice rise in ego there.
Angers led-footed highway drivers…hehe.
Causes the occasional smile, god knows the world needs more of that.
Girls love it, its unique, and it causes small children to beat one another! Can there be a cooler car around?
I wanted something different, old, and inexpensive (for I’m broke) So Here I am!
Pardon the corny-ness, but I do believe I have found a new love.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
