Vehicle

2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GL TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

The big (+) here is the TDI Diesel. I just finished a trip through the NC mountains and this car handled almost as good as my A4 Audi Quatro. The torque is amazing, pulling four adults up 15% grades in 4th gear at 60 mph is nothing to laugh at. This car is well balanced and the rear wheels stay right behind you where they belong. The car is solid and well built. It's a VW Beetle and should last for years.

Favorite Features

TDI 1.9L TurboDiesel, 12V outlets, Drivers seat position, Well balanced.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the wind noise at the doors. Needs larger brake disc's. Look forward to a 4Motion version. The Monsoon Sound System needs a Sub.
