2005 Volkswagen Beetle TDI Reviews

I bought this car used. It is so much fun to drive. Gets great fuel mileage. Plenty of leg and head room. The only complaint that I have is that its sits very close to the ground and you really have to be careful on slopes. I love it. Yeah, I'm a chick and they say it's a chick car. Oh well.
