2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Turbo S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
The wife always wanted a new beetle
and now she has one. I made her get a
black Turbo S.(LOL) Ok, now the review.
Smooth shifting 6sp. Power band on
S is great, no big bang just a good
stream of power. Interior leather is
great. Exterior is nice. I wish it was
more different than the other beetles.
I do like the exhaust tips. Dash seems
way to big but you get use to it. Cup
holders are a big problem. I like the
route 44's from sonic and they will
not fit right. We have a three year
old and getting him in and out is not
as bad as one might think. MPG could
be better but my wife drives the car
like she stole it.
Turbo power and looks. Nice leather.
Cup holders. I hate the A/C vents.
They are the worst of any car I have
ever owned. They slant way to much and
you can never get them in a good
position. I live in Texas, so I need a
good A/C with easy working vents.
Stereo is just ok.
