2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


When the New Beetle Hatchback came out in 1998, I knew that I wanted have one as my very own. But once the word was out about the Convertible I had to get it instead. I own a Sundown Orange one w/black-grey interior....which was very hard to get (limited availibity in NJ) and I absoultely love it! Great handling, quiet smooth ride, love the blue and red dash...rear seats are more spacious than I thought. Trunk space is a little disappointing, but the head room and "open" feel of the interior makes up for it. It's almost like a clown car...looks so small outside, but once inside you feel so comfortable. My tallest friends (at around 6'2") fit without any trouble. Limited glove box storage....

Best Features

exterior color, blue/red dash, great gas milage, soft top latch and switch makes it very easy to lower/raise roof; intergrated blinker signals in side mirrors

Worst Features

Hook-up for iPod, cellphone. Standard CD-cassette indash stereo , better interior lighting system (light off of rear-view mirror is limited); easier adjusting air/heating vents to control air flow; folding rear seat
