2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Uncomfortable back seat because of
headroom; car much too low to the
ground for pot holes and poor roads,
interior falls apart (fourth beetle
owned) colors boring - this is a fun
car, and the same colors over and over,
or shades of the same do not sell cars.
But...... best design exterior
appearance, excellent handling, best
most comfortable seats. Also,hate
unmovable new console, seat belts very
hard to use. Most of the improvements
on these new models stink. Who is
designing these anyway? Why did they
mess with a great car? Pay attention to
my comments because I am a very loyal
Almost everything. The Eames-
inspired Printed Seat Covers, the Two-
Tone Paint Jobs, the Wood-Grained
Consoles, the Turquoise, Rose, Cocoa,
Melon, Chamois, and Powder Blue yet-to-
be-discovered colors.THE WAKE-UP CALL
THAT THE MANUFACTURER DOESN'T HEAR!
The Beetle is designed for a nostalgic,
as well as sophisticated public. Trying
to make it a Middle-class-sub-compact-
type car, is a huge mistake. The lines
of this car are timeless, and the
quality of Volkswagen make it a great
new classic. But the advertising
campaign is poor.
