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

Review

What was most surprising to me was the headroom. I'm 6'4" and I had the opportunity to sit in one. Prior to that I was sure I wouldn't fit. I commute about 100 miles a day twice a week to my job, and find the VW New Beetle to be a viable commuter car. This car is stylish and comfortable when the commute gets tedious. I have two issues with this car: no pop out rear window, and the noise when the sunfoof is fully open. I also have to admit VW created a compromise on the latter issue by creating a sequentially opening window. This way you can open the sunroof partially without increasing the road noise.

Favorite Features

The folding front bucket seats, and the I-pod that was an incentive in 03. This car also has heated seats. I also love the way VW used the hatchback to create more storage space. That was a definite surprise, given how the beetle used space in the first cars.
