This little car is AMAZING! I got this car, for my 1st car. 16 years old. It is good for starters, its GREAT on gas and drives very smoothly. I ABSOLUTELY reccommend this car for 1st cars for teens, and or adults. Beetles are very nice, comfortable, and affordable little cars. Good style, and interior. I give this car 5 stars. VW Beetles are the best. !!!

I bought this car used. It's a 2001. Not only is the car a fantastic lime green but it's fantastic for my wallet. I am a High school student working at staples and making minimum wage. Gas is important to everyone and boy do I get good gas mileage. My whole tank takes about 400 miles to empty. It's fast, sporty and cute! Please don't be afraid to buy one. I had to get my ignition wires and coil pack replaced. No biggy! But it's all fixed and is working wonderfully!

We bought this car in February and have had a fun time driving it these past couple of months. It is an enjoyable ride, as it should be, and it is fun as well. I love the turbocharger! On those short I-83 on-ramps, the turbo really helps you to get up to speed in a hurry! The AC needed to be recharged but no real surprise there considering its age. I wish it did not have the fancy low-profile wheels - I do not want to pay twice as much for tires as for ordinary wheels, but other than that I really like the car.

Great ride, fuel efficient.

by from Las Vegas, NV on February 16, 2008

You won't find too many other cars that get as good as gas mileage as the VW Beetle. This car has been very reliable. No problems at all.

I got this bug a little over a year ago, with only 65,000 miles one it. i am absolutely in love with it, i have had to replaced the spark plus (which was excepted) and then my vehicle kept over heating and had to get the water pump and some belts replaced. hoping that will be all besides general maintenance for a while. The only thing i really dislike about this vehicle is where the cup holders are located. They are under the radio making it hard to fit almost any cup in there. besides that i love it!

A VW Beetle has been one of my fiance's dream cars for several years now and we could not be happier with the used one we found on cars.com. The vehicle was in great condition and runs better than my newer car. We have recommended cars.com to several of our friends and will use it again in the future.
