2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
20 months with only a tail light to
burn out. Never back to the dealer
for any repairs. Highly suggest
replacing stock air filter with a
K&N for a nice performance boost.
I averave between 27 and 30 MPG. The
only option I got is the great
sounding Monsoon system. With the
back seat down there is plenty of
cargo room. Trips from MD to FL,
and MD to Ont. Canada were very
comfortable. The car holds it's value
well. A lot of fun and safty.
Looks, Handling, Monsoon sound system,
reliability, sunroof, fuel ecconomy,
overall fun. You have to smile when
you look at the car.
A better map light would be nice. The
paint seems to chip too easy when hit
by a small stone.
