When I was deciding what convertible to buy (I knew I wanted a convertible), I was testing all the usual suspects of American and German pedigrees such as a Mustang, BMW 328i, Audi A4, and none of them was even close to the level of fun this cabrio provides. The perfect car for Southern California, if you ask me!
The engine is also pretty nippy and the handling is fun cause the car is light, wide, short and has a low centre of gravity. Even without putting it into the Sport regime!
Also, styled the way it is, i.e. bright white and with the lovely alloys, makes this bug really pretty unique and turns heads. I have yet to seen one like mine. All I have seen so far are either creamy or other soft colors that make it look a little too much like a toy or, too much "for-ladies-only", if you will. I am driving this myself and don't feel like my masculinity is in peril in any way :)
Also, the heated seats are awesome! You feel like you don't need to put the roof down almost ever!
2009 Volkswagen New BeetleJakub's Volkswagen15515
Absolutely fantastic! Car was great and just as he described. Jakub was incredibly responsive and helpful and his directions and instructions were spot on. This was my first time using Turo and he made it a seamless experience.
Jakub was a wonderful host. Directions to rent his car were clear and easy to follow. He was flexible with the pick up and return time and was prompt in responding to any questions during that process. His car was clean and ran like a dream. A great first experience.
Jakub was both professional and friendly. He replied to my request within 30 minutes. The car was really fun to drive and in good condition. The whole experience went smoothly and would definately reccomend renting his cars!
The car was in great condition and so fun to drive. The perfect car if you're going to be up and down the coast, or just want to experience California life in all it's glory. Even my husband enjoyed driving this little car. :)
Jakub made the entire trip seamless, and was a great first impression of all that Turo can offer. There were chargers and an aux cord in the vehicle, which made our somewhat longer trips (Coronado to Hollywood) fly by. I wouldn't hesitate to rent from Jakub again, and would highly recommend!
Jakub was awesome. He was gracious, warm, professional, and accommodating. Top notch guy, which I appreciated as this was my first Turo experience. This car was a blast to drive. I recommend putting the top down and driving over the Coronado bridge if you have a chance. So much fun and easy to park, which is nice given how tight the spaces can be downtown. 5 stars all around.
Jakob was awesome! He was extremely accommodating. Our previous car had gotten cancelled due to the owner needing their vehicle so we only had a few hours to find a new one. Jakob responded within minutes amd was there to greet us at the airport. We were happy to have the convertible in the 75 degee weather.:) I would recommend this VW!
