2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

In the year and a month I have owned this car, it's brought me nothing but smiles and enjoyment. The turbodiesel engine is smooth, quick, and rather quiet. The power comes on strong and keeps coming until redline. It's a great highway cruiser and long-distance traveller. Why go hybrid? Get a TDI! It's more fun!

Favorite Features

The mileage! I'm regularly getting in the upper-40 MPG range, once averaging 56mpg for the tank. Passing power is there, the heated seats work great, I love the new console design. It's been a great car so far!

Suggested Improvements

Bigger sun visors, really. That, and an autodim interior mirror. Not much else I can think of.
