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


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!!!
