2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Turbo S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
The car has exceptional ride and
handeling for a vehicle of it's size.
The drivers seat is comfortable and
adjustable. The vehicle seems much
larger than it really is. The car feels
solid and confident until pushed to
it's limits.On the dependabiltiy side,
there still seems to be some issued
that need attention. My car had an
start and stall routine from time to
time. The engine and transmission
require close attention to keep the
motor from redlining. The engine revs
fast and requires shorter shifts than
the 150 hp 5 speed. It is a good car
and a good choice for single or two
Sport seats and quality feel.
The Monsoon system makes all the sound
come from the front of the car. The
standard system fills the car with
much better sound. More dealerships
