2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

A few too many recalls for windows & electrical. But the service from the dealership has been great. When looking at this and other cars, I was looking for something fun to drive and I had to stay under a $50K budget. There were no other requirements. This was one of the most exciting to drive and it came in at less then half the budget. The gas mileage might not what you'd expect, but I can handle 27 city, 31 hwy. Don't get this one with an automatic, what fun is that!

Favorite Features

Speed and acceleration. This car might be the ultimate sleeper. Steering is very tight and responsive. Ever pull up next to a 911 at 140mph, me and the Beetle have.

Suggested Improvements

Even though this car has a front mounted water-cooled engine and front wheel drive with limited slip, the front end gets a little loose when you give it some gas.
