2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
Review
Still having the honneymoon effect with the beetle, however, we are exceptionally pleased with our 03 GLS TDI 5M. First fuel tank at 43 MPG mostly around town. Very smooth driving and top rate handling & braking. Very easy and fun to drive and gathers speed much quicker than we anticipated. Speedo shows 70mph and it feels like 60, I keep thinking it must be wrong. We love the sunroof and so far very glad we purchased it. I cannot keep the wife out of it. G. Miller
Favorite Features
Retro Look, sunroof, great handling and ease of driving. Fuel milage is a big plus especially when gas goes to $3 a gallon this summer.
Suggested Improvements
Better cup holders, not much other than that. VW Dealers are not friendly so we went to an independent to buy, will have car serviced elsewhere. At Dealer we test drove a Jetta (limited to 2 mi) and tried the beetle but could not to leave the parking lot!!! A real turn off.
