What a Surprize!

2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GL TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
Review
I compared the New Beetle TDI with the Mini Cooper. The Beetle won out as to ride, handling, and economy. The panel instrumentation was also better. What won us over was the ease of getting the Beetle it serviced. The dealer also gave a deal on oil changes that was less than Jiffy Lube quoted for 100K miles. I wish the low fuel light didn't come on with 125 miles left on the tank empty.
Favorite Features
Fuel milage exceeds the 42/49 about projected. I drove the bug on a 1500 mile round trip and got 51 miles to the gal at 75 mph. I get 47 in mixed driving. I wish I had the ESP option. The radio is very good.
Suggested Improvements
Change fuel warning light to reflect the Diesel added range over the gas model. Don't get the light grey seats. They stain too easy.
