Convertible top issues, space availability.

2005 Volkswagen Beetle GL Coupe

A few problems a I have had with my car are my coolant reservoir cracked which caused overheating. Another issue I had with my car is the convertible top is no longer water resistance and when it rains water will leak through onto my seats. Performance wise my car runs well, the gear shifts are a little slow but it has not given me issues. It is a very small car but for the size it is very comfortable. The trunk size is very small and fits few things. I have only used the sport mode in my vehicle a few times and it runs very smooth. I would consider my car a very reliable vehicle considering the usage as well as age.
