For as long as I can remember I have always been a huge fan of the Beetle, I love its quirky curves and cute shape it always stood out to me. When I passed my driving test I tried too convince my parents that the vintage beetle was the car for me, sadly to no avail. But now my prayers have been answered courtesy of my fabulous husband, I am now the proud owner of a Volkswagen Beetle, ok so its no the original one but its a Beetle none the less. So has this car that I have spent so many years fawning over lived up to my expectations? Absolutly!!!!!
The Beetle I purchased is a 2002 model, but for a ten year old car it drives like a dream. The steering, braking and accelarating is responsive. All the controls are within confortable reach and the dash display is clear and easy to read. And for a car of its age it flew through its MOT without fault. It is a very smooth and comfortable car that can easily achieve high speed while feeling like its hardly moving.
So are there any down sides I hear you ask? Well she may be my baby but she does have her flaws. For example the space in the back is tight, and the car can only carry 3 passengers ( 1 front seat 2 back as there are only 2 seatbelts in the back) The space in the boot is restricted due to the curve of the car and the dash board is very deep, which took some getting used to. But with all that said I can still carry my whole family, (me the hubby, my six year old and our 4 month old) with relative ease and even fit the pram in the boot, with some effort.
To sum up, it may not be the ideal large family car but it is solid, reliable and I would be heartbroken to part with it.
