2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

This car is pure fun. I used to drive a '91 Saab, but the body style got boring on the newer model... so I defected. My friends thought I was nuts when I was considering this car, but the review once they rode in my Bug was "this is the coolest car I have ever been in." The pep of the turbo rocks and the luxury features on the GXL are a great value. I got everything I wanted for $22,600 vs. $30+ for everything else I was considering. Picture a sunny day, sunroof open, stereo cranked, leather wrapped wheel in hand, turbo kicking in on a straight-away... sounds like a beach day to me. F-U-N!

Favorite Features

Auto deploy spoiler, heated leather seats, spacious fold down trunk (skis fit inside), Monsoon stereo, rain sensing wipers... Better yet, review the standard features list in the brochure, they didn't miss a thing.

Suggested Improvements

Some slight rattles in hatch need to be resolved.
