Buggy about my bug

Vehicle
2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback
Review
I bought my Turbo New Beetle because I considered it to be a great fun drive when I test drove it. And 3 years of driving it hasn't disappointed me. The ride, power and handling continue to impress me even to this day. I love driving a rolling piece of sculpture. Especially something that looks unlike anything else on rhe road. About the only problem I encountered was a short that appeared as a warning light in the instrument cluster. It seems that 3 times in the first two years the air bag indicator light came on. Each time my dealer indicated that it was an electrical short and replaced the cluster under warranty with no charge to me.
Favorite Features
Heated leather seats are great. Audio system and CD changer have fine sound quality. Turbo gives the car plenty of power and passing is a breeze. Mileagge is good... I have a pretty heavy foot and I still average 25-27mpg.
Suggested Improvements
Make the handles on the doors a bit more durable and easy to clean.
