The wife is set on a New Beetle. I'm not exactly opposed. It's the wifes car but she herself has decided to go with a more conservative color (black, silver or gray) which helps limit the 'cute' factor. Anyway, wanting opinions on the NB. Engines: The MPG on the TDI is very tempting however I don't like the 100 HP especially when the much cheaper base engine has 115 HP. Also, since when is diesel fuel more expensive than 97 unleaded? Hasn't it always been cheaper? Is diesel fuel going up at a quicker rate than unleaded? I don't know anything about diesel engines. The dealer is saying that they are more reliable. That 150 HP Turbo is tempting as well. To save some money I think we might get a 'Certified' used NB. Anyone have experience with VW's Certified program. Seems like a pretty good program. Any and all opinions greatly appreciated.
