My second Beetle
By DallasDriver on
Vehicle
2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
I'm now on my second New Beetle. I've never had any problems with the car beyond a few minor complaints like the placement of the cup holders or the fact that the texture on the interior door handles tends to wear off. Both of mine have been the GLX trim. Plently of power and a lot of fun to drive. I've heard of people having mechanical issues with New Beetles but I have to wonder if perhaps some of it isn't abuse.
Favorite Features
The instrument lights with their red and blue hue are very visible at night and the engineering of the interior is first rate. Steering is very good and the compact size makes it a breeze to park.
Suggested Improvements
The headlights are very difficult to change. The first time I had to do this it took me nearly two hours. Also, glove box is tiny and the placement of the armrest vs. the shifter could use some work.
