2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

Handles extremely well. It's not a sports car, but you're never lacking for power. Great gas mileage makes this a terrific commuter car for me. Even though it's a diesel, it isn't noisy. It has extra headroom (important for tall guys like me). Extras, such as the alloy wheels, carbon trim, side airbags, rear disk brakes, electic windows/locks are all standard features. Hey, it really is fun to drive!

Favorite Features

50 Mile per gallon! You only have to fill the tank once a month.

Suggested Improvements

The cup holders are the only negative I have found so far. They stick a bit and the liner sometimes pops out.
