2002 Volkswagen New Beetle Sport 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I bought my Beetle Turbo S for my girlfriend to drive. This replaced a 92 Taurus, so there was no where to go but up! It's been a good car, but has required several trips back to the dealer for warranty issues (emblems peeling, trim falling off, floormat anchors). It's fun to drive and I'd buy another as long as it had a warranty in effect.
I like the 1.8 Turbo engine with increased hp, awesome sound system, and comfortable leather front seats.
Improve the noisy spoiler, give it better seating in rear, and add a standard CD player / changer.
