2005 Beetle GL 5sd manual

2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Extremely solid vehicle, very responsive to driver command. Good not great acceleration, excellent drivetrain, with smooth shifting and ultra sensitive clutch manipulation. Steering articulates well with little to no tire slippage under severe cornering. Wonderful interior ergonomics and ease of operation. Easy to read clear gauge panel with good back light. Very comfortable seating and adjustability. Overall just a GREAT car!
Favorite Features
Exterior looks and packaging. Interior comfort and respect for ease of use. Proven drivetrain with smooth function and good performance.
Suggested Improvements
High performance versions are only available in GLS configuration - while seemingly not a concern. I would have loved to purchase the High Performance gas turbo engine with a 6sd manual transmission, but could not without the sunroof standard on the GLS.
