My first new beetle since 1970
By BigJer on
2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
This was supposed to be my wife's car
and I didn't drive it until several
weeks after we had made the purchase.
Once I drove it I found it to have
excellent ride and handing. I didn't
think that 115HP and an A/T would be
ample for interstate merging and
passing but on a recent trip from La
Quinta, Ca. to Las Vegas, NV I was
traveling 75mph on long upgrades and
still had plenty of the "GO" pedal in
reserve. Terrific little car!
Headroom, I'm 6'4, Telescoping Wheel,
Blue and Red instrumentation lighting
which is nice for night driving, color
and texture of dash, which reduces
reflections in the windshield and I
love the Luna Green color.
