2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

i have owned new cars for over 30 yrs -
the new vw beetle convertable is the
most fun and best fitting car i have
owned. it hugs the road and is
great on turns. unfortunetly i have had
it back to
the dealer 3 times for a rear window
problem - the dealer scratched the
inside panel and had to send it to the
body shop to be re-painted then buried
the metal clip to the seat belt inside
the panel!
while i am love my car, i am very
unhappy about it spending so much time
in the shop for
these "annoyances"(4times total in 6
months)
i have always owned new cars in order
to avoid these problems.

Review

Shortly after purchasing my bug, I made
plans to drive from Chicago to
California. A solo trip with diversions
north and south of the direct route. I
travelled through 13 states, through
many twisting mountain passes and
boiling deserts, and this car was
atreat to drive! Tight turns on
hairpin corners-she held at three times
the recommended speed. National
parks with a 360 degree view with the
top down! Close enough to pet the
buffalo at Custer State Park in SD. My
bug handled the snow and off road
terrain at Crazy Horse Monument. My
6CD changer and Monsoon sound system
blasted and relieved other drivers from
my questionable singing voice.


Best Features

I bought my bug in the winter in Chicago-so first I would say how warm I was-heated seats!!!!Handled great in the snow! Love the Monsoon sound system.


Worst Features

The only thing I would wish for is the Turbo-she's a little sluggish at the start-and PLEASE-longer sun visors!!!

Review

dont buy this car until vols fixes
their problems with the new top. mine
goes up and down but you cannot always
latch the top at the windshield. they
tell me to let it sit in the sun. not
the best answer when it starts to rain
and you cannot get it to close.
dealership has no idea how to fix


Best Features

peepy and great fuel mileage-25-35mpg


Worst Features

make the top close like it should. even when i can get it to work it is very hard to latch. my wife would not be able to use this car.
