It drives very comfortable between 60 and 90 mph.

I love my car regarding driving it, it's a comfortable ride, it gets moving when I need to speed out of a dangerous area, and it handles very nicely. I do not like that when I break hard that I can feel the shifting down as much as a I do, it makes it feel like something is not connected right. I have had issues regarding the mechanics in my car doors. There is no trim around the side and top of the car window, so every time I unlock my door or open it the windows roll down a little bit. My passenger door has had issues regarding this twice even though I rarely open that door. The mechanics in the doors I feel are made cheaply. For the rest of my car I love the size and its driving. I feel safe in my car.

I love driving with the top down. The car is a lot of fun to drive.

I have had problems with acceleration. Will be taking car in for service. I also find the headlights are not bright enough. As a result I find myself using the high beams very often. . Right now I am contending with a lot of squeaking radiating from the windows and breaks. I will be taking the car in for that.

Likes and dislikes of my VW.

My beetle gets 42 mpg. The seats are roomy and it's fun to drive. Maintenance is low cost. VWs are fun, economical cars. The purchase price was reasonable. Only problem is not enough leg room in back seat. If you are tall, your legs are cramped. But overall, it's a good little car.
