VW beetle windows in winter?

2013 Volkswagen Beetle

The vehicle bought is a 2013 VW beetle. It has never developed any issues whatsoever. I bought the car used with 52, 000 miles on it and it has run smooth as possible. The only issue that I could imagine would have to be sometimes when I drive the transmission does not downshift the car naturally as it should when I slow down, because when I slow down and speed up again, I catch myself in 6th gear at 30mph. That is not good on the transmission or the rest of the car! Other than that it has never developed any serious problems. The features I like most about the car is the interior. Tan, leather and heated seats makes quite the impression. Beetles have always been known to be a lady’s car, but personally as a male I enjoy riding in it. Its small, quick, can hang curves well with the such wide tires it has, and it looks stylish as well. I have had the VW for about 2 years and have added on about 30, 000 miles. I drive a lot, but it has held up very nicely. The only thing I hate about the car are the windows in the winter. To open the door, the window goes down a little bit first, but in the winter when the windows are frozen and your trying to get into your car to defrost it… its difficult to do when you do not want to break your window. I have had this issue before, but not always.

Great car and super reliable.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle

My beetle has been nothing but wonderful since I got it. The car is very fuel efficient if I run premium grade gas. Getting an oil change every 10,000 miles is a huge perk as well. I save a decent amount of money by not getting it changed every 3,000 miles because I have a far drive to work everyday. The car handles very well I am poor weather and I am really loving having bright led lights. Overall the car is great. I have an excellent sound system and the seats are super comfy. The interior is very nice as well.

Volkswagen beetle convertibles have a bunch of up to date features!

2013 Volkswagen Beetle

I have a convertible beetle that is black with a tan top and a tan interior. Overall, the car is an amazing car. Runs great, not many problems. My car has broken down before because the battery died, which was not caused by the driver (me). That can happen often with Volkswagen thus being the car batteries dying. My car is also not very good in the winter. It one time slid in a McDonalds drive through and then I got stuck. But I have had my car for three years now and both of these things have only happened once!
