VW does it again

Vehicle
2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 4A)
Review
VW pulls another "Rabbit" out of the hat. I am 6-3, and fit this car like it was made just for me. I didn't buy it for performance, thrills, and such, but it's simply amazing what a 90 HP engine prodcuing 155 ft-lbs of torque can do. The creature comforts for the GLS level are well done, the sunroof is in the right place, the thoughtfullness and operation of the controls are, well, so German! And that's a compliment. Good drive- ability, outstanding, frugal economy, and reminds me an awful lot of the "real" bugs we loved so much in the 60's and 70's. I wouldn't want to go back there, this is a superiour car
Favorite Features
sunroof placement and operation, multi- mode, good job. Diesel engine, adaptive auto trans. Drives like a go- kart 8-) Great dealership, BTW. Thank you.
Suggested Improvements
temp gauge for diesel, please. slight wind noise (70+mph) CD player, please. otherwise, there's nothing else broken, please don't fix it.
