Hi everyone! I had to join this forum because after looking through the site you guys really seem to know your stuff!I actually own a 2003 regal gs and belong to their forum which is set up like the beetle forum and I have found it to be very usefull in finding answers to most issues I have had.I have just bought a 1999 beetle turbo for my daughter because she had to have one and just turned 16 and even better its a 5 speed and she is learning how to drive with a clutch!I just hope the clutch outlasts the learning curve!LOL!!
So , let this new journey for me and my daughter begin in a VW bug!

Thanks

The VW 5-speed, in my opinion, is the easiest manual to drive. She'll be a pro in no time. :)

Good job, Dad! The New Beetle is very hightly safety rated, and not only that, but the most fun car on the road!! Maybe she will even let YOU drive it! :lol:

Welcome dude, to the New Beetle .org! Now, about that clutch. My car has a hundred and seventy thousand original miles on its clutch. Two different young girls have learned to drive on it, and God only knows what the original owner did to it for the first 60 thousand miles of its life. As far as I can tell it's still has at least a couple years of life left in it. Keep in mind this car has been in service since September of 1998. Just try to keep the revs under about 2500 when coming off the clutch. :pop
