"I have owned this car since 2003, it has been nothing but good minimal very minimal brake downs maybe once every 3 years if that. I bought it with 16k on it and now am looking for a newer one that is an automatic, I am tired of shifting after 11 years or I would keep it because it is still in very good shape and mechanical shape."
Cons: "malfunctions at older age and higher miles"

"Bought this car and have loved it some problems but that's expected with the age,cup holder design is annoying but it's better than none,definitely a good used car for teenagers and young adults that don't have kid's,males should steer clear of the newer ones and especially the convertibles unless they like paying a fortune for insurance."
"This car was a great first car! Until I put a little bit of miles on it. Granted every car has its wear and tear but once something falls apart.. everything falls apart. My gas tank flap wont open now due to an electrical problem which means the trunk, charger jack, and windows do not function properly either. The electrician told me I would be better off buying a new car rather than replacing it because its value isnt worth the repairs. This care is expensive in every aspect."
Pros: "fun to drive, looks real cute top up or down."
Cons: "It's a gas guzzler!"

"It's fun to drive but it does cost me--$$$ Cuz it's a guzzler!
Everyone makes comments to me about its economy. Little do they realize that it ain't the old beetle bug of yesteryear. Drive it in a fun way, and you'll be a frequent flyer at the gas pump too!"
Cons: "Cup holders, smells like crayons, unreliable"

"I have had this car for almost 2 years now and it has to be the most unreliable car I have ever driven. I can name very few things that we have not had to replace on it in the short amount of time that I have owned it. I hate my car and I am incredibly ready for a new one. As a college student, I need something that isn't going to break on my way home and cause and accident but I can not count on this car for that."
