2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
Fell in love with this car immediately
just on looks, but was completely sold
when I test drove it. The 2.0 engine
gives fine performance and really does
have plenty of zip for the highway. The
top operates easily and I'm just
waiting for full blast spring to really
have fun. A great price for a nifty
baby boomer dream car. Even room in the
back seat for a big dog (always use pet
Sound system is awesome. Very quiet
ride, especially for a convertible.
Comfortable seats, good handling. Love
the blue dash lights, too.
Adding someplace for parking change
would be nice. Larger map pockets
behind seats. No info on the Tiptronic
Auto Trans. in the Owners Manual. The
video that came with the car had
nothing to do with convertibles.
