2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Hatchback GLS 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Just got the new Lifestyle package in
Blue Lagoon. The blue and black leather
seats are awesome and the turbo eats up
these hills in Austin. Owner of a 1972
beetle and it is amazing how far these
cars have come.


Best Features

styling, blue leather interior

2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Hatchback GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This is my first Volkswagen and I am so
glad I bought a bug. A yellow one at
that. Everyone says it is so perfect
for me and it is so much fun to drive.


Best Features

Red interior lights, how the seats go so far forward, sunroof, fog lights.


Worst Features

The stereo isn't near what I thought it would be and I don't love where the cup holders are. I can only have one tall latte in there at a time.

2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Hatchback GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

I HAVE NEVER HAD SO MUCH FUN DRIVING!
My Uni Red Bug with the Lifestyle
Package leather interior is better than
any other car I've driven. The
performance is of the highest quality
and the Turbo engine "kicks butt." My
soon-to-be 17-yr.-old son complained
about the car at first, but once he
drove it, he was hooked. He'll go
absolutely anywhere with me as long as
he gets to drive. The car is sporty,
comfortable, fun, roomy, sassy, and
there's a surprising amount of room in
the trunk!


Best Features

Sunroof, lifestyle package, turbo engine.


Worst Features

I'm not too fond of the cup holders for large drinks, i.e. iced coffees, etc.

2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Hatchback GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

My New Beetle has been absolutely
wonderful. I have driven sports cars
all my life, and I don't feel that they
truly reflected who I am. They were
fast, not very safe, and gas guzzlers.
My new beetle however, is reliable,
environmentally friendly, and very very
cute.


Best Features

airbbag for the driver and the passenger airbags in the sides good gas mileage low emissions vehicle sunroof mines a color concept car- blue exterior with blue door and seat panels on the interior


Worst Features

CD PLAYER--it would be nice for a CD player to be in the car already when you drive it off the lot, although min came with a free MP3 player
