The beetle became a womans car, mostly because of it's styling... The newest Beetle is actually very nice, and masculine.

I have always preferred older vehicles, and TBH, back in 1996, I didn't like the A4... Now, I love it... The thing with any older vehicle, it is going to need more regular maintenance and TLC than a new car. My car has only left me stranded once, and that was because of a faulty timing belt tensioner that I installed late last year.
I still wish I never sold my 1956 Beetle back in '99.
