2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


Initially had some problems with the top. The problem has since been fixed and works perfectly now. A little bit of trouble at first in getting the boot on without a lot of elbow grease and sweat. Now it's easy. There's not a lot of storage space in the car since I used up the arm rest with the CD player but the trade off for the wonderful sound system is worth it. The back seat is great for groceries but forget passengers for anything more than a short ride. Riders sit low at a 90 degree angle with not a lot of leg room. I bought the wind screen so that uses up the back seat anyway but it's a worthwhile purchase.

Best Features

The heat and air conditioning are excellent and the additional heated seats make the car very comfortable in the coldest climate. Sound system is excellent, though I upgraded mine.

Worst Features

Work on squeaks otherwise a well built, comfortable riding and very cute car.
