My VW Beetle Convertible was #2 on my Bucket List. I love her! The convertible top is automatic, and the windows respond to the top. The interior looks like it came out of the fifties. It's been good on gas, oil only gets changed every 10,000 miles, and it's just a pleasure driving.

I love the styling of the 2017 VW Beetle, especially the more bold look of the vehicle front. The vehicle is very wide inside and being 6'1" my front leg room is more than adequate and I drive with the seat back one position. I like the streamline roof styling and it does not interfere with access
