2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Turbo S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Had the Turbo S for 2 years and haven't gotten a speeding ticket yet. The mpg was what I expected, but the appointments came as a surprise. What a thrill to drive. (Wife hasn't driven it yet). The Monsoon w/ cd changer is an exceptional sound system. Quiet, stable and a real zoomer. The heated seats are great in the winter, and the AC blasts you out in the summer. The best VW I've owned.
Handling capability is extraordinary, as is the quick responsive steering. Seating is quite comfortable for a man 200 lbs plus.
Bring the Turbo S back into production ... and offer it in a convertible
