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

Review

This black Beetle was bought just a couple of months ago and haven't had any problems with it. I do think that it needs some more power under the hood as the 2.0 w/ auto tranny is rather slugish. I would suggest the 1.8t w/ manual to compensate for the poor acceleration. I do notice that it doesn't sound very nice from the outside, it seems to have a puttering type sound that def gives away its lack of performance. The rear hatch does have a lil rattle or clunk to it when enetering or leaving the drive sometimes. Other than that the car is great. I love the comfort of the seats. The pump style height and vintage roller style recling seats give it a nice ride no matter what body type.

Best Features

Interior and exterior design.

Worst Features

More power. When compared to the GLI or more sporty Jettas it's a Dog.
