2002 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is one cute little car. The GLS has more bells and whistles than are necessary (including a bud vase) the 2 litre engine is nice even with the automatic tranny. well built. only flaw was first day of driving, the emissions control light came on and stayed on. the bug was back in the shop for three full days for diagnosis (dead emissions control computer) and fix. kind of put a damper on the new car experience, but just a little bit of driving cured that. power-assisted rack&pinion (easy, but with good road feel) and stops just right with ABS on disc brakes (all wheels). great turning radius, and it's fun!

Favorite Features

keyless remote entry, great steering and handling, cute design, fully adjustable seats, roomy interior.

Suggested Improvements

air conditioning could be better, but this is california. 2003 model offers a ragtop.
