2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Looks, Handling, Monsoon sound system, reliability, sunroof, fuel ecconomy, overall fun. You have to smile when you look at the car.

Suggested Improvements

A better map light would be nice. The paint seems to chip too easy when hit by a small stone.
