walk away from this one by goodoldsue on 09/07/2012. Trim: 2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8L Convertible, Owned 5 years.
Pros: fun to drive...get lots of compliments on the looks of the car, but I never recommend owning one to anybody when they ask how I like it!!
Cons: all four window mechanisms have broken, with one breaking twice!! very expensive to fix....I don't even use the windows that much..car loses power when gas level falls below 1/4 tank...dangerous!! lining around back window sags blocking some vision...won't buy another vw...and the dealership is extremely annoying to deal with...I don't even bother taking it to the dealer anymore..it doesn't meet the criteria for a lemon car but is sure meets the criteria for junk!!!
Overall review: sorry I purchased this...

2005 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
The New Beetle's shape is still modern. All models are available in both GL and GLS trim.
