2007 Beetle, minor cosmetic damage, runs well, AC OK.

I own a 2007 VW Beetle. It is a good car overall, but it definitely has some cosmetic issues. The car runs well, the AC is OK, and the transmission is still good. Major cosmetic issues include the convertible top, minor paint chipping, interior passenger door panel vinyl peeling and damage.

Sporty, reliable, safe car named Luna

I like its size and gas mileage. It's a well made car. I've had it for 11 years now. I dislike that it doesn't do well when the snow reaches 4 plus inches. I don't like how much it costs to maintain it, and many non-VW dealerships hesitate to do work because of VW's construction.

- Christina B

VW 2007 convertible beetle.

Put new roof on in 2016. Back window came loose. No longer take on love my drives. Great gas mileage. Small trunk. Sometimes car lurches. Very minimalistic interior. Do not have automatic roof. Sometimes it is hard to get the top down manually. Engine runs a little rough.
