I always wanted a VW Beetle - and spoilt that I am(!) - I was lucky enough to have one bought for me as a Christmas present. There it was....sat on the drive with balloons and a banner - and it was all MINE.....and I've loved it ever since! That was 8 years ago - and to this day, I don't have any...

Yes, the Bug is back, and better than ever! There are times in your live, when against your better sense and financial abilities, you suddenly realise that you cannot spend one more day living without a new toy. I experienced this hellish sensation about 1 year ago when I first met the New Beetle...

When I heard VW were going to produce an updated verson of the Beetle I was sceptical at best. But then I saw one. NOTHING prepares you for you first look at this little darling. It's like they've taken the feel of the classic beetle a distilled it. Then added the luxuries of a modern car such as...

“I love this car”

published 02/04/2001

Profun, stylish, nippy.

Consa bit squashed in the back

I have always wanted a VW beetle. When I first learned to drive I wanted an original one, but my Mum wouldn't let me. (Had to listen as she was lending me the money to buy a car) As soon as I saw the new beetle I wanted one, and now - at last - I have got one. I bought mine new earlier this month...

When the New Beetle appeared as a concept car back in 1996 it was met with immediate interest and acclaim for its styling. And there is certainly no car that can compete for individuality. But is the Beetle just a Golf with a different body? Is it the best car in its class? Does it betray its...

ConsOnly space for one welly in the boot

I first saw the Beetle in it's custard yellow incarnation in San Francisco in 2000 while I was working out there. Gorgeous car I thought, but HORRIBLE HORRIBLE colour. Then 2 years later I got the loan of a silver Beetle to ferry myself, my hubbie-2-b and our new-born son about in until we made...

“great car but a bit pricy”

published 24/01/2001

Proits a new classic

Consbit pricy

At a shade under $37,000, the new Beetle is likely to attract a different class of buyer than the original 'people's car'. Realistically, it's probably a bit overpriced, and although it offers a 3-year warranty, it covers you for only 60,000 km. Standard gear on the Beetle includes dual front and...

“VW Beetle 1.4 16V, Silver”

published 17/04/2005

ProStylish, Uncommon, Smooth, Comfortable, Sleek!

ConsResticted Viewing, Lack of same in back,

The beetle all in all is fantastic! Looks fab, drives well, handles corners brilliently, esp when the ESP kicks in. I do feel that is it slightly over priced, the money you would pay cud get u a top of the range car from another dealer. Pay attention to the viewing out the back and to the corners...

ProGreat looking car

ConsManufactured in the same country as BMW's

Just want to say congrats to VW. They have done an excellent job with the new VW Beetle. They have capture all of what made the original Beetle such a success and updated it to modern day standards. I also commend VW on their handling of the aftermarket garages for the Beetle. They should teach...

ConsCost, practicality, space, lhd

I love my new Beetle. I had wanted one of the originals but really could not justify it as I drive around 25,000 miles a year in my main car. The Beetle is just not comfortable for those sorts of miles. It is essentially a Golf in a party frock, so you can rest assured that the engineering is...

The VW Beetle turns heads wherever you go. I've had mine for over a year and I have to say that it was worth the money. When choosing wht car to buy I chose the beetle over other cars such as the peugeot, Focus or even a TT because for me the Bug is a stamp of individuality, style and character...

After three years of ownership and into it's first MOT how does Volkswagen's Re-Isssued Bug hold up to scrutiny? Pretty well to be honest. With reliability at 100% and the only thing required to get through the MOT were 4 new tyres. The New Beetle isn't a car you buy just for the purpose of...
