...Pros: good on gas Cons: give me the OLD Beetle--ti had something the new ones never will Overall: rather have the Old Beetle anyday...

Black Turbo Launch

...It very comfortable and the arrangment inside makes since and everything is handy for use. BIG PROBLEM - The drivers door automatic window does not function correctly. From day one it does not close all the way and takes 5-6 attempts to get it to go all the way up. It has been rained in two times already because of this. I took it to the dealer and they say there is no problem and if there is it's because of the window tint. I explained it has had a problem since day one and that there are numerous complaints across the internet regarding the same problem...

...Cons: Small trunk (I know, I know--whaddya want? It's a Bug). Overall: Fun to drive; different, seems well made. Nostalgic...

2003 New Beetle - BLCC

...Pros: Gas mileage, handling, styling (inside/outside), ROOM!
I like everything about this car ... :) Cons: I like everything about my car except two things: 1.
Front cup holders are pretty much useless. 2. Sun visors - since I am short, the sun visors dont do much for me.
Overall: I have the 2003 Blue Lagoon Color Concept (BLCC) with the 1.8 Liter Turbo engine. The turbo comes on quickly, and sounds wonderful!...

350 lbs, and yet very comfortable driving..Some idiot tried to cross 4 traffic lanes during rush hour and T-boned his car..and not a scratch on me

Turbie,my turbo S beetle
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: A break from the norm. Cons: It's already been back to the dealer for a couple minor repairs.(which will probably happen with any new car) Overall: Speaking for the turbo S,
I think it's a total package.A fine balance between speed, styling, and comfort.Not many people know the difference between the turbo S and a regular bug.
I've never recieved as much attention or had as much fun just sitting at a stop light, so do your research the car has alot to offer...
