The 2012 Volkswagen Beetle is a decent car. I was surprised that it did not get better than 30 mpg for its size and aerodynamic body. The handling was great and made driving fun, along with a zippy take off. It was a quiet running car aside from the noisy flat somewhere in the back/trunk door area. The trunk also does not hold a lot, but with the back seats down could squeeze in a surprising amount of luggage and items for a trip across country. Glow around the door speakers is adjustable and a fun touch.
Story
Driving this car from California to Vermont was an adventure and quite fun at points.
Pros
This car has held up relatively well with no major repairs or maintenance as it should for its age. The car is pretty fun to drive, nice take off.
Cons
The engine used more fuel than expected. Tires for this car are not in a very common size which made finding used tires less likely but not rare. Lots of plastic pieces that broke in the past couple years despite mindful treatment. This included the front bumper marker lights which completely unglued and fell off. Blind spots from the rounded back end are quite big considering the car's size.

My time with my VW beetle was a short one. It was my very first car and was given to me at a reduced price from a relative. It was a very reliable car and it got very good gas mileage. The car performed very well and was a very nice starter car. The interior was very sleek looking as well. The gas mileage is far superior to my truck and the ease of maneuvering the car were amazing.
Story
Trying to get out of my car once I got so stuck it took me almost 5 minutes to get out of my car
Pros
Gas mileage Maneuverability
Cons
My biggest complaint about my VW beetle would have to be its size. I am a 6'4, 300 pound man and having such a little car was very inconvenient for me as it was nearly impossible to get in and out of the car. I eventually sold my VW and purchased a truck with more room to accommodate my size. If I was not such a big man, I would still have my VW no question.

Staff was friendly and helpful but not too pushy. I was there pre-shopping, not quite ready to buy, but I wanted to see what was out there. The sales rep seemed to understand and was willing to help me anyways. I found a great mini SUV and am excited to go back later to buy! I highly recommend this dealership. As someone who has never bought from a dealership before, I was very afraid of being taken advantage of, however after my visit, I feel that I can confidently buy a car here.

It was easy and friendly. I had a budget and they worked around that. No surprise fees. Would do it again if in need of a new car.
