I don't have much info either, other than I own one. I called VW and found out there were only 100 made for US sales and I think 800 in the UK. I love mine. Get alot of looks when I am driving down the road. I got a really good deal on mine. I paid 16900 for it with 13000 miles. It had sat ont he lot for a while. I guess there are those who don't like th color combo.

2000 New Beetle GLX 1.8T
Certified Used at a Toyota Dealership (basic warranty)
7.49% APR on a 48 month loan
I haven't finished buying it yet and I can still get the extended warranty, or back out entirely. Should I get the extra warranty? Did I get a good overall value?

I'm reading a LOT of negative reviews about reliability on these things. That doesn't make me feel good!!!!!!!!!
Is a 55k miles, year 2000 going to last me a couple years or am I going to be sinking serious cash into it???

#49 of 74 2005 VW Beetle convertible
Feb 15, 2009 (8:47 am)
My wife loves the new Beetle convertibles and is interested in a 2005 GLS automatic with turbo. The car only has 11,000 miles on it and looks great. I had a 2001 Jetta a couple years ago. It was a decent car but then needed a few repairs the last year or so. So my question is can anyone out there give me any information I should know about the Beetle convertibles? I'll take positive or negative. Also, is the turbo worth buying or does the regular 4 cylinder suffice?
Thanks for your help!! I appreciate it!!

I purchased a 2008 Beetle Convertible (new). I did look up forums etc. for problems, and about the first or first and second year of the Beetle Convertibles, there were some problems with the rear windows of the top coming loose after a few years. Apparently, the window is glued into place and it seems the glue may have begun to fail. Some people were quoted very high prices for a completely new top, and others took the car to a shop that does car interiors etc. and had the window reglued into place. Certainly a much cheaper route! I only saw this for the earlier convertibles, and 2005 should be fine. You may want to check forums on this, just to be sure.
The Beetle Convertible is FUN, FUN, FUN. You won't regret getting one!
