Love My Beetle BUT....no clearance under
By Rene' on
Vehicle
2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
Just purchased the beetle three days ago and am quite pleased. Actually the process was so smooth and easy however am disappointed in one feature that seems impossible to alter...clearance under the vehicle. Therefore I feel the dealership needs to make sure the potential buyer understands the cars limitations in this regard. See below....
Favorite Features
Feels spacious inside. Love the inside lighting at night. Very comfortable ride. Easy to drive and shift. Great power from 2nd to 3rd!!!! Surprised how roomy the trunk is.
Suggested Improvements
Found out about lack of clearance when attempting to drive into my driveway (a "normal" slope)first time;scraped the front lower edge of the car causing it to pop off and crack. Had 17 inch wheels but it didn't make a difference.I am able to back in and out of the driveway.
