2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I love this car however the interior
seats stain too easily. The paint is
chipping off the interior door panels
and door handles. Gunther VW repainted
them at no charge. Headlight plastic
cover came off for no apparrent reason
while driving in Florida. The chip
protectors are peeling off (cheap
plastic film). Besides the cosmetic
annoyances, I would definately purchase
one again as it drives like a dream.
Don't waste your money on the 2.0
turbo. Turbo lag, annoying sound of
rear spoiler, and highprice tag. Will
purchase a TDI next time around.
Exterior, engine, and comfort.
Interior plastic trim that chips off
too easily. Headlights are a nightmare
to fix. Seats stain from water spillage.
