2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I just sold my Audi 4000S which I had
for 19 years. I was nervous about
getting this New Beetle, but I took the
plunge. Three months and 5,300 miles
later, I am so delighted with it. Even
though it has plenty of power, people
do not expect it to be a hill climber
or a speeder, and so I think it is cut
some slack surveillance-wise.
Naturally it looks like a cartoon and
makes me happy whenever I get into it.
It has so much more power than the old
Beetles and even my old Audi 4000S,
that I feel totally satisfied. I do
not understand the Car Talk radio
program's reference to "unreliability."
One should be able to order upscale
seats for even more comfort, and the
dash should be designed to upgrade the
stereo system. One should be able to
get in dash CD, digital radio, etc.
