I do not like driving at all. But after I drive the new beetle, even getting stuck in the traffic jam is a lot of fun.
I choose to have the 'white' beetle so it is easier to mix and match with clothes. There are a lot of features that I fall in love with this car.
It is equipped with the flower vase so the car becomes a more pleasant place.
There is a special compartment for eye glasses,
a small monitor showing the date, time and weather. The steering wheel does not get hot in the summer. The locking system allows forgetful driver to have a break. The car will automatically locked by itself after around 2 minutes you walk away from the car. On the other hand, when you start driving for around several minutes, the central system will automatically locked all the doors. This is especailly good if you have to carry kids around. When you are carrying a lot of grocery, one simple push of the bottom, the back door will pop open for you to place the goods inside the car. The driver's seat is extra-ordinary comfortable!!
The maintainance service is excellent too! The service center not just change the oil, they clean the car as well. They can even take you to the mall for shopping and take you back when your car is done!
But when you need repair service, do not try any local body shop. The Beetle is such a delicate car that each component fit very well together. Not a lot of mechanics know how to fix it or put it back together!!!!
Volkswagen has paid so much attention to details and care a lot about their drivers. It has bought the driving experience to a new level! Thank you very much!

Please give me a rating if you found my experience is useful for your information! Because I need your support to continue the writing career. Many many thanks! ^!^

We had a bug for a few months and I loved it but I could never have had a white one, always had a hatred of tipex coloured cars :) xx E.
