This is the 3rd car I've purchased from Flemington VW Audi Porsche, and the 2nd car that I've purchased from Debbie Lotufo. I used to dread car shopping, but she makes the experience so much more enjoyable - her breath of knowledge and honesty is so refreshing and reassuring. We worked with Doug Mathewson and Jon Budd for all 3 sales as well, what a wonderful team! Debbie, Doug and Jon are all professional, responsive and reliable - a true pleasure to work with!
Slug Bug Black - SE Premium Convertible

I got my first VW in April of 2016. A new Passat SE w/Tech & Lighting packages. Just a couple of weeks ago I was in a horrible wreck and poor Patricia (The Passat) was totaled. Dead. Dead as Disco. She took the damage well and kept me safe when the idiot blew through a red light and destroyed her front end. He was going about 60 in a 35. Off to the dealership I go knowing I would be getting another new VW. I took one look at Barbara (The Beetle) and knew she would be mine. She is black with a black top and black leatherette seating. The engine is new for 2018, a 2.0 liter Turbo "Budak" that puts out 174HP coupled with a 6 speed automatic transmission. Barbara is not fast but very quick. Wind noise is not near as terrible as I anticipated. I live in Amarillo, TX and we have some of the highest wind speeds in the entire nation and I have yet to have an issue with the top. I've never owned a convertible before so I'm pleasantly surprised with the ride quality and lack of noise on any road at any speed with or without the top down. Since I opted for the SE Premium, I have the 400 watt Fender sound system with 8 speakers and a sub. The sound quality rivals many HK or Bose systems I've heard in other (much more expensive) vehicles. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are fabulous. The rear view camera has a neat party trick. When you put the vehicle in reverse, it pops out of the VW symbol on the rear trunk keeping the camera free of dirt, water or snow. The Park Pilot feature is also handy when pulling out of a driveway on a busy street. The leatherette seating is outstanding and very comfortable. The back seat is very tight but that is expected when you get a car of this size. It is possible to fit 4 adults in the vehicle but there will be complaints from the rear passengers on a long ride. The heated seats work so well they almost burn me when they are on the level 3 setting. The convertible top opens or closes with ease in under 15 seconds. The operation can even be done at speeds of 31MPH or less. I've averaged about 26.3MPG in mostly city driving in Sport mode. The vehicle takes regular unleaded however, I put premium fuel in her to keep the engine in outstanding shape and to maximize HP potential. I look forward to enjoying this car for at least the duration of the lease that I signed. (4 year lease) 2019 will be the last year to get a Beetle as they are being discontinued. Supposedly there is a possible electric version in the future. (Fingers crossed!) Furthermore, I love watching people punch each other when I drive by.
We had a great time. Sevice was great by all the staff. Stop by just to see the lot. And we ended up with a great car at a good price. Thank you very much.
My absolute dream car

I absolutely love this car it has been a dream of mine forever to own one I had a 2013 and I got into an accident and it was totaled and I never thought I would be able to replace it and somehow they were able to find me one and I am eternally grateful because I just love it
The dealership it???s self and the staff working here are the best! Amazing help from all staff, even taking me to the bank to get the check.
I rented the Turbo convertible from National
by michle from boston, MA
November 26, 2018
I had the rental on the 15th of November in the snowstorm in NJ.
I am a good snow driver but I was surprised at how well the car maneuvered in the snow. Multiple accidents all around me from the turnpike to Rte. 38 and the beetle just went around them all - no skidding or sliding
The service was suppose to include checking all fluids, tire pressure, and etc but instead the service writer asked if I wanted those things done (and that it would take more than an hour). Last I checked, it only takes a few minutes to check windshield washer fluid and make sure the tires are inflated perfectly. The service was originally for a factory recommended ???ECM Programming.??? My question, if you???re trying to improve your customer service, why wouldn???t you just perform a courtesy fluid check (after all you had the car for an hour)? Strangely, the R/O says it was performed

This car has a very cute, distinctive look.

The car handles well and is very comfortable. The only real problem is rear visibility. The back window is very small and the headrests on the back seats block a lot of the view. The car does have a back up camera though and this helps ! It is a fun car to drive, especially with the top down and in the sport gear!
We worked with Vinny and I would highly recommend him as your sales consultant. He is very knowledgeable about these vehicles and their safety features, which was one of the main reasons I was getting a CX-5 with the Grand Touring trim and Premium package. We told him that we wanted to buy the car cash and get out of there quickly and he made this happen. The only thing I would recommend to this dealership is to get some half and half or heavy cream for the fridge by the coffee machine instead of having just the powder creamer.
