I’ve always liked the VW Beetle Turbo and it would look hot in red! If you love the color and the car, I’m sure you will still be excited. It’ll of course be NEW and have features and attributes that your old car didn’t have. 

I’ve only had one car, but when I upgrade (years from now) it will most likely be the same silver color, possibly the same make and model as well.

I’m on my second Mustang and if I had my way, I will always have a Mustang. My husband hates the impracticality of them though. At least I’m ok with different colors though!

In 2008 I was t-boned and my 2003 grey Volkswagen Jetta was totalled. A month later I was the proud owner of yet another grey Volkswagen Jetta (2008 version though).

I had a 2001 Toyota 4Runner SR5 and traded it in for a 2014 Toyota 4Runner SR5 (premium) in January. We looked at a bunch of different SUVs but I’ve always loved 4Runners and Toyotas are so reliable we just decided to get another one. I love it! I did, however, go from a silver one to a white one.

AnnieAAA:  we traded in my 2002 red Mazda Protege for a 2010 grey mazda 3 – granted they look pretty different but it’s basically the same car.  My parents actually owned 2 2000 Proteges at one point, a black and a blue, they were bought 6 months apart.

AnnieAAA:  My mom has owned 4 gold Honda Accords.  She loves them but she likes to upgrade after a while because the new features are so enticing.  Nothing wrong with wanting to replace your red Beetle with a new red Beetle that gets better gas mileage.

I went from a 2006 Toyota Rav4 to a 2013 Toyota Rav4. Just different colors and different packages on the car. I definitely upgraded from the XL to the XLE. Love that my new Rav4 comes with backup camera, sun roof and what not.

What are the interior options?

My mom gets a new car every two years (same make and model) in white, but get a new interior colour each time. Right now it’s a beautiful cognac leather interior with black piping. Last time, it was a black leather with cream coloured piping.

The inside of the car feels entirely different.
