I am lucky enough to have an old Beetle and a new Beetle and think they are the coolest cars around. Stupidly a few months back I decided to sell my newbie and buy a corsa as I was clocking up more miles than I would have liked. What a mistake... I missed Widdle (Cyber green Beetle) from the moment I dropped him at the garage and have spent the last 4 months pining for him. Then out of the blue, while looking to buy another beetle who did I find for sale? Widdle. Iam over the moon and am picking him up next week. I cannot wait to get him back he is the best drive I have ever had. The corsa will go to my hubby rather than back to a garage. I am in love with the new ... Read the complete review

This was a spontaneous purchase - I'd actually walked into our local VW Dealer to buy a Polo which was on special offer. Whilst talking to the salesman, he asked if I'd be interested in a New Beetle as he had a few pre-registered cars which were unused and, in effect, brand new. I'd noticed them on the roads and had always admired them but I'd never given owning one a great deal of thought. Twenty minutes later, a cheque for £12,500 was handed over and I had a Reflex Silver 1.9 TDI. I opted for the diesel as the better fuel economy was an important consideration, and the specification included air-conditioning, not available as standard on the 1.4 or 1.6 ...

Love it or hate it, the new Beetle is definitely a head turner. I bought my 2004 Beetle for £6000 just under two months ago, and I have to say it is my pride and joy. Having changed from a Volkswagen Golf 1.9TDi to the Beetle 1.9TDi, I have to comment that as you would expect, the two cars are very similar to drive. Like the golf, the beetle has a nice little bite that gets you off nice and quickly at the lights, though it does tend to get quite noisy in the lower gears, so if you are driving one of these, you will not stay in 1st of 2nd gear for that long. Cruising around town at 30mph means that you can stay pretty much in 4th gear the whole time which is ... Read the complete review

All my respect is given to the new VW Beetle! As I live in Cornwall where all the mellow surfers live the old rust bucket beetles are very common, but I don't see so many new ones.They are the nicest thing ever. I am determined to own one of those beasts. It is like a bubble car and is rounded off and looks smart! If any one was stinking rich or just wanted a neat car i would surely advise them to purchase the Bug. And i hope to see more of them around because they are a very nice sight. i thought that the other Volkswagens' were awful and they were a letdown. The shape is very taky on others but i like the way the new bug is rounded off and is very sporty, not .. Read the complete review

My first car was a Beetle, so when I got the chance to use one of the new models in conjunction with my job I jumped at the chance. I was presented with a sort of mint green model which brought about a lot of envious stares from my colleagues. From the outside it looked so stylish, I couldn't wait to have it all to myself. I started it up and although quiet, the engine purred rather than roared. When VW designed the new Beetle they have considered even the smallest detail. I spent a good 15 minutes trying to get into the boot, only to discover that the boot lock was hidden by the VW logo, and a cuter touch was what I presume was a miniature flower vase on ...
