A vehicle for warmer climes.

2017 Volkswagen Beetle #PinkBeetle

Literally the only problem I have with my beetle is the window seal mechanism freezing in the winter. By that I mean how when you unlock the vehicle the window drops an inch out of the rubber seal so that you can open the door. In Midwest ice storms the window will freeze in the seal, forcing you to pull the door open putting strain on the window and the rubber, or use a credit card to break the ice preventing the window from dropping out of the seal. This car would probably be perfect in warmer climes.

Apple CarPlay is a great feature.

2017 Volkswagen Beetle #PinkBeetle

I have owned my beetle for 2 years. I have taken it to the dealership for regular oil changes, inspections and routine check ins. I have only had 1 issue in the 2 years of owning the car but it was not a mechanical issue. The dealership simply did not connect the battery correctly. I love the way the car drives and the apple CarPlay is a great feature. It makes navigating to new places so much easier and having it give me my phone notifications is much safer than looking at my phone while driving.

How smooth of a ride & how comfortable the seats are for such a small vehicle.

2017 Volkswagen Beetle

I have had my car for 2 years now and I love it. I haven't had any problems and for a car so small it is very spacious on the inside. I often plan events and I was shocked with how much I could fit in my trunk just by putting the seats down in the back. I have also moved out of an apartment and had room for boxes. I have been spoiled by the up to date features and technology especially the AppleCare play which makes syncing my phone seamless.
