First off let me say this puts a Prius to shame and makes me laugh at their bullshit hybrid claim at fuel economy all the while not mentioning the slow death of their batteries, the environmental effect of said batteries and the cost of those batteries when they take a shit on you 5 years after you purchased the turd. With that being said: It’s been a few days with the beetle legally on the road now and I really like it . Earlier in life I laughed at these cars and maybe putting them off as chick cars but really they are very enjoyable to drive and well put together aside from the crappy plastic on the interior in some places. What attracted me to this car was 100% the TDI engine in it with the prospect of over 50mpg. The first 240.5 miles I put on it gave me 41mpg and that was pushing the car to its acceleration limits and seeing what it could do as well as doing the old hammer mod on the injection pump. Tuning it a little leaner and driving like a normal person I should be able to squeeze out over 50mpg with ease. I have also picked up a few junk yard parts for it to help with some of its missing cosmetic parts . This car also handles pretty damn amazing and I think has surprised some folks in their rear view mirrors. The moral of this car story is to not judge a car by its cover because I kinda fell in love with this beetle even though I don’t want to admit to it. Oh and btw it has 287,000 miles on it. So it gets a huge 👍🏼 from me. . @vw please bring back the TDIs ! I’m going to want a new one at some point .
