2002 Volkswagen New Beetle Sport 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Wow! Having driven Japanese econo boxes
for the last 7 years, I am quite
impressed with the Bug 1.8T. I was on
a shake down cruise to Reno and paced
an Audi A4 all the way over the
mountains on I80. It seemed that this
car was not going to unwind or unstick
from the road!
The seats. I have the special concept
black and yellow seats and I have to
say that I have never ridden in a more
comfortable riding position bar none.
The gimmicky spoiler rattles and creaks
at speed. I would suggest a permanent
mount. A bigger tach, boost gauge, and
real temp gauge would be nice.
