This was the most pleasant new car purchasing experience I've had in over 40 years. My appointment was at 1:00 and I was off the lot by 2:45. A very positive experience.

Slug Bug Black - SE Premium Convertible
by dmalmondjoy13 from Amarillo, TX
November 26, 2018
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.
Repeat customer at the Autobarn VW. The staff there will make every effort to earn your business while maintaining a low pressure environment. Very accommodating and certainly competitive regarding pricing and valuation of any vehicle you may wish to trade. The actual business transaction is seamless and efficient, although I wish this could be completed in one step (ie the sales consultant processes the paperwork) as other dealerships now do. Patrick McDonald is fanstastic. He listens, provides answers, and is genuinely interested in making the experience positive. Will definitely consider the Autobarn for my next vehicle purchase again.
Very Pleased with everything on this car!!!!!!!!!!

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
You’ll be greeted promptly, and everything will seem smooth and easy till you reach the finances part where someone should really shout “game time”...
The financial process was really tense, if not dark and shady. I walked in with my own approved credit from another bank, but they pushed for another application of their own finance department which I agreed to. To my surprise I was approved for a lower rate with but I did not know that till I refused to buy with th rate they quoted me and started walking out. I’m talking about them trying to get me on a 13.5% instead of 5.9% that I ended up buying the car with, and I only did because I really liked the car... one more thing don’t count one the free loaner most of the time, but they will arrange a shuttle service for you...
I LOVE MY BEETLE!

I am 57 years old and have not felt joy like this driving since I was in my early 20?s! Driving my convertible beetle just plain old makes me happy!!
Ernie found us a perfect car within minutes! He was very professional and kind, and took all of our requests into consideration. He made finding a used car easy and enjoyable!

Beautiful shape, good mechanic properties, good paint, comfortable and safe driving.Every part of this car is of high quality. I have done mechanic check to prove the excellant mechanical properties and safety mechanical properties of this 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
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Car of my dreams...

I have always wanted a VW Beetle and now I owe one. This is car is all that and a bag of chips for me. It has heated front seats, led lights in the interior, low mileage, one owner, and no accidents. LOVE IT.
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.

This is my 3rd Beetle convertible in a long line of VW's that I have owned. 1st one was a 1964. I have had no issues with the current Beetle. Sorry to hear that the Beetle is going away.
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!
This car is fun and a head turner!
by Triplethreat from Centreville, Va

Really nice fun ride. Lots of pick up. I have owned many high dollar sports cars but for the money the bug has really been one the most fun to drive!
I posted my car on Craigslist. Never heard of Caravana before. Tom Perkins called me and told me about Caravan. He send me the link. Put a few information and walaaa, got my reasonable offer for my car. I attached a picture of my drivers license and the title of the car on the website. Made appointment to have them pick up the car, gave me my check......done. Seriously, it was that easy. Tom Perkins followed up the whole time with a text how the process is going. Best service. If you want sell your car with no hassle, go with Caravan. Thanks for the best service Tom.

The three things i DONT like about this otherwise very cool car are:
Blind spots (its a convertible)
No back up camera
Terrible gas mileage
While this car is very cool to look at...its a Turbo Beetle convertible...it is highly impractical.
Absolutely recommend! Took a total of 5 minutes once they came to my house! Whole process took less than a week! Excellent experience!! Thank you
Very fun car to drive! Windstop is amazing!
by JO from SHOREVIEW

This has been a very fun car! We love the windstop! We have had other convertibles, and love the ride of this VW Turbo Beetle. It has a trailer hitch and we pulled a light aluminum trailer with two mopeds. We also drive a VW Tiguan and the ride of the Beetle feels very similar. The heated seats helped us use this into our Minnesota fall season.
Overall my experience at Pugi Hyundai was excellent. I will be returning to buy a car for my fiancé as well. Everyone was really nice. They made the buying process easy and quick. Also the Starbucks machine in the waiting area gave me the energy I needed for my evening purchase.

Very pleased with the new style the beetles have to offer along with the overall handling of this car. This is my 3rd beetle i have owned and really wish they would continue making these great cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was thoroughly satisfied with the way that the Autobarn Countryside Service & Parts Team worked together to ensure my 2009 Passat was ready for Winter. Swap of the Winter Wheels & Tires was seamless as always thanks to Brien Akers inventory management skills. The oil change was routine amd Bob advised me that I had a couple of minor issues that needed attention to which I had him take care of one on this visit and will most likely attack the second on the next visit. Drop off and pickup were smooth and this time I even grabbed a snack from their Customer area before browsing the showroom. Joe
Most reliable and fun car that I ever owned !

This car meets all my needs ! I am a big Beetle fan and the Dune is my 3rd. Best one yet ! Couldn't be happier !
We were treated very well by our salesman Chris and David. We received a great value on the certified car we purchased and they worked with us after the sale to make sure we were satisfied with all of the details.
Love this Car!

If there was one thing i wasn’t sure about it was the black wheels instead of fancier chrome ones. It handles great and has enough pick up to pass cars. It came with turbo engine. Good gas mileage also. Mine came with blue tooth installed and sound is better than a lot of blue tooths in other friends cars.
All honest - friendly - really respected my time - clean facilities- late hours- competitive pricing - second VW purchase
Most favorite ride ever!
