2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

I love it so much that I do not want to trade it in for a 2007, although I probably shall. With every New Beetle there is usually one problem. For the 2000 model, it was the parking gear, which was somehow attached via computer chip to the brake light and the cruise control. For the 2003 model, it was the alternator and the heater. The car handles so beautifully on the road that these are mere annoyances!

Favorite Features

The black leather seats that heat up in the winter and the moonroof. These are a few of my favorite things!

Suggested Improvements

Continue making the Beetle in Lagoon Blue with black leather seats (The Laser blue is not nearly as pretty and the seats are grey). I have to settle for Salsa Red (looks like a big tomato!)
