Don't be Fooled by the Hype
By Jeff A. on
Vehicle
2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 4A)
Review
The heated seats don't work like they have in the past. Dealer insists there is a temperature sensor in the seats to determine how hot the seat should be. Even with the air-conditioning on in freezing temperatures, the '5' setting does not work at all. Not impressed with the fuel economy in the cold months. Averaging 21-22 mpg in the city. Power windows have a tendancy to roll back down after you've rolled them up. Sluggish start after sitting overnight. There is a wind vibration inside the car if the sunroof is open and traveling less than 20 mph. Very annoying.
Favorite Features
The dash lights have to be the coolest feature on the vehicle.
Suggested Improvements
Interior design could be better accomodated for storage and and indash CD player. Cup holders still need to be redesigned. Allow more room in back for the seat to fully lay flat when the front seats are fully back.
