2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Exterior, engine, and comfort.

Suggested Improvements

Interior plastic trim that chips off too easily. Headlights are a nightmare to fix. Seats stain from water spillage.
