The convertible top is easy to put up and down.

It does not have a remote start. I can play only one CD at a time. The headlights must be turned on and off by hand. I have difficulty connecting the seatbelt on the driver's side, currently the signal keeps dinging while I am driving.

- Lorraine T

It is beautiful looking kick-ass automobile.

Handles like a sports car, takes corners well, no sliding, grips the road, turbo charge, fast pickup, surprises other drivers, great dune color, comfortable, lots of legroom, moo. Roof, heater seats, rear camera,

- Dina H

Convertible Beetle will someday be a collectors car.

The best vehicle I have ever owned. Performance, reliability, and comfort are all 5 star quality. I purchased a convertible. Love my Beetle. I will never own a different brand.
