My first new beetle since 1970

2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

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!

Favorite Features

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.

Suggested Improvements

A temperature gauge and sunvisor extension.
