So I'm thinking about buying a VW Beetle from a family friend. It's a 1999, has only 53,000 miles and she's selling it for a great deal. I'd have to get used to driving a stick though and I'm also not totally sure about the fact that it's yellow.


What do you think?? Should I do it?? My station wagon is about ready to die.

Thats cute!!
I love the bugs - in any color... they look good in anything!
But I can't drive stick well either - so that would be my turnoff...

have you looked into buying any other cars? or will you be getting a good deal for it?

I love Beetles and Volkswgen in general. I think you would look like a total hottie in this car.

Hhmmm? My sister-in-law bought one of that same year 3yrs ago and it had a lot wrong with it. She bought it off of a friend of a friend's. Luckly she managed to sell it to someone else right away. Find out why they are selling it. Find out more about bugs that were made in that year. Take the vin number down, and call DMV to see if it's been in any accidents and how many owners it has had. Bugs are great little cars, and look great but keep in mind, that no one ever wants to get rid of a reliable car, especially if it's cute! Don't jump into anything yet, do your homework
Good Luck!

The yellow is my favorite! (I think they kind of look like Pikachu from that cartoon show) I see them all over SF and Berkeley. The other day there were two of the new bugs right behind each other at a stop light.

very cute car!!.. But it sounds like you'll have to make a lot of changes in order to drive it (even though I hear that driving a stick isn't that difficult)... my concern would be less space (I'm thinking that going from a station wagon to a bug would severely limit the amount of room in the car)... HTH!!

Thanks for all of your feedback everyone!

I took the little guy for a drive and it's surprisingly roomy! It doesn't feel nearly so small once you're inside & there is decent trunk space. I could actually fit my MU chair in the back, which is important since I often have to schlep a lot of crap around for my freelance work.

Getting used to driving a stickshift here in Los Angeles is going to be baptism by FIRE but I've decided to go ahead and get it! I must say, it's one of those cars that just makes you smile to look at it.
