2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback
This car is cool! The punch from the low-revving high torque engine is great down low, but when the turbo kicks in it has even more power. The power is great, the build quality is amazing, pictures don't do it justice. Everything is nicely made and nothing creaks or rattles, it is solid and tight to the road. It drives like a Porsche until you hit a bump at which point it turns into a Bentley and you don't feel it. This car oozes with engineering perfection. The amazing thing is on a 150 mile trip I got 43 mpg and that's not just highway. What a car - it's balanced in every way. Buy this car!!
Power, comfort, handling, stereo, sunroof, control, space in the back, 43 mpg.
Spread the pedals, stupid looks, headrests are terrible.
