Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet (03-10)

Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
No I'm not a hair dresser!! Although if you are a man driving it, expect those comments....

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Most liked it. It's very open with the top down and brings back a lot of nostalgia to older generation (I am in Germany remember).

Would you buy this car again and why?
I wouldn't buy one myself as it's too under powered for the driving I have to do, however I have already contemplated buying one for the other half. Don't be put off by people saying you'll fit a tennis ball in the boot and thats it. Yes the opening can be akward, but it does actually fit a monthly shop in (just).

What are you likely to buy next?
Not sure yet.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Around town it was quite responsive. Although you're never going to win a straight drag away from the lights, it will keep up fairly nicely with most. Living in Germany the motorway's a touch different speed wise. On a straight line it struggled to get to 100 with the top down. However even at this speed it is just about possible to talk to the person next to you.

What's it like to park?
Where does it start and where does it end? The huge dashboard makes it impossible to see where the car ends, and the rear vis' isn't exactly great due to the design of the roof, however you do get used to it.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing, but then it was a new car.

What's most practical about your car?
Despite comments to the contrary, it is fairly practical. Unless of you're off on a month long driving holiday with 4 other adults........
