2002 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

Due to a long drive to work and the fact that mom had a Beetle when I was a kid, I now own one too. I have had nothing but complete satisfaction with my Beetle so far. I'm averaging about 39 mpg. Some people are put off by diesel due to the smell and I gotta say, it's a different smell, but it is not as bad as what you might think. It is a bit louder, but again, not that of a semi. For anyone thinking about it, I would highly recommend taking one out for a drive and talking to your local dealer (or unlocal, I drove over 75 miles for mine) and doing some research. What it will save me in fuel cost a year, will make a couple of car payments.

Best Features

Where should I start? I just love the car: fun to drive and very cute.

Worst Features

I have to agree with the old standard here, the cup holders have been improved, but still not the greatest. But it is a small car, if I wanted cup holders, I would have bought a van!
