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

Review

This is my second new beetle in as many years. The first a 2000 GLX, I kept a year before VW of Amer. replaced it with a 2001 GLX, gratus. Car kept loosing power after coming to a stop and attempting to accelerate again. They spent a year trying to correct without success. New 2001 does the same thing and now they "own-up-to" it's "Turbo-Lag which all Turbos have and They can't do anything about it."

Best Features

...Cars mileage has never been better than the infrequently twenty mpg.New battery after cars warranty ran out was $190.00 for replacment at !4,000 miles

Worst Features

Correct "Turbo-Lag"--- Correct their epa estimated mileage to a realistic 15 to 20 mpg and reduce their thieving battery replacement charge of $100 labor and 90.00 for the battery.
