2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
I was looking for anything but another
minivan. My sons all have their own
cars now and my daughter and I were
looking for something fun. She's 9 and
I am 45. I remembered my fathers VW
bug and it brought back many good
memories. We bought a mello-yellow VW
(2004) convertible bug. The car is fun,
handles well and we love the car!!
The VW stero/radio and CD player
in the car is fantastic! I drive
a lot for work and now I can
blast the beach boys on the CD player
with the top down/work/save on gas (the
milage is great)/all with a smile on my
face. I would buy the car again! Even
my 18 year old son says the sound
system is awsome!
The car handles well and is very good
in bad weather. It handled well
driving through Huricane Alex in North
Carolina recently. The stero system
won't be beat! I love the convertible
top, even with arthritis I can
open/close it by myself!
It could use more storage space for
purse/change and a place to keep papers
when the top is down. More cup holders
and an ashtray. I'd like to have one
with onstar! Is there a way to
reduce the dust that gathers daily on
the large dash??
