the original beetle was designed for a purpose :- it was a folkswagen to ferry average families . It had character.It was low maintenance. It was styli**** had details. Just like humans,it wasnt perfect but it had a soul . Most of all , it did not pretend ........... this is my choice

The 2012 Beetle just does not do justice to the 'BEETLE'....the design is just out of the world(pun intended)....and finishes the era of the car that was actually invented for the common man. I hope VW takes note of the real Beetle lovers like me...and bring back the vintage beauty...but ofcourse with a spacious design plus new amenities...WITHOUT CHANGING THE Beetle out of the BEETLE....!!!!

the 2012 beetle doesnt give me gossebumps when it passes in front of me! It fails to put a smile on my face. The 1998-2011 never fails to amaze me!! It still send a chill down my spine everytime I see it!!! I still want it!!!

Low quality control; I had a VW Golf, its A/C went out every year, then the computer to the injectors quit working,; they do not even pay for the tow! Sold it at a loss(upside down) in 1988. Had worthless extended warranty, too! -KLM-

I just fall in love with the VB 2012 at first sight. It's external body design, the placement of rear light just complement the body curve. it's perfect fit unlike the earlier model (1998-2011). Can't compare the internal design and feature just don't have the chance to drive but I will one day. The VB 2012 will be here to stay for some time.

i personally think that the VW Beetle has to follow with the modern aerodynamic designs as what others are doing,.... but with certain image of the original beetle,,.tq
