I am a 59 year old female who lives in Washington, DC. Since I was 18 I have wanted a Beetle. I have been told no that is a car that I wouldn't enjoy if I had. Also, you must understand I am not a small person and one of my friends laughs whenever I mention it. I am also probably moving soon to NH. My daughter says you would not be able to have a volkswagen convertible in NH as it would live through the winters. Also my wonderful mechanic who works of cars for many of the congressman and works on many many different types of cars says that the car isn't a good car. Do you have any comments?
