    My car

    I had a Beetle for over a year and loved every minute of it Sadly due to the fact that my dog grew too big to get in the back, I had to change it for a sensible hatchback. After 18 months I have decided that the beetle is more important and am about to get another one. They are just such fun cars to drive, and I have the roof down in the winter with the wind-break up and the heater on. This car just makes you happy, and no urge to get road rage when driving it!

    My car

    I'm writing this for my Mum. She bought this car from Volkswagen in 2005 on an 05-plate. It had only done 300 miles when she bought it.

    It was a good little car - it had all the safety features as standard such as ESP, airbags, traction control and ABS, and we got the winter pack which had the heated front seat, foglights and metallic paint.

    My mum loved this car and had nothing go wrong with it at all - everything was in perfect condition, then about couple of months after we got it someone went into the back of her, so you could imagine what my mum felt.

    The running costs on the car weren't the best, since my Mum would only use it to take my brothers and sister to school. It would only return about 32-35mpg. A lot of people criticise it for being a girly car, but it's not really - my Dad loved driving it, but he found the 1.4-litre engine too small. Once you got it over 3000 revs, it was OK.

    Then, when my Mum became pregant, we had to get rid of it after a year, and we got a Ford Galaxy. If you look on my review about it, you'll find it was not very good at all.

    My car

    The beetle cab is fun and exciting to own , pretty cheap to run and you feel safe in it, I have just purchased the diesel 1.9 tdi cabrio ,it will replace the 1.4 I currently own , too be honest I will proberbly stick with beetle cabs as they are safe ,reliable and very nice to look at. I would recomend this car to anyone,its not just a girls car both my boyfriend and dad have both said they enjoyed driving it and found the gears smooth .

    My car

    Mmmmm How long I have waited! At last Mr Big arrived March 07. He lived up to all my dreams and more. Plenty of room for the kids aged 7 and 9, No room for the husband! (He can get his own!) Ipod great! stereo is good, a comfortable girly drive, although there are a few rattles on uneven ground but that's expected from all cabs, No view out the rear window, Boot lid is a bit small (but workable!) But then again....Who cares! He's gorgeous!!
