Vehicle
2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6A)
Review
It is a fun drive, and I fit at 6' 2", the TDI smoked a little at first, but after it was broken in, and using Biodiesel it now does great. Going from a Land Rover to a VW TDI is very nice on the pocket. Only thing that bugs me a little is the outside mirrors defrost is in the center position of the mirror adjustment switch, this is taking some getting use to, hope I don't burn them out before I figure it out, a light would be nice.
Favorite Features
45 MPG for an automatic when driven at 70 MPH, and less when you stomp on it, and with the DSG transmission it performs well in sport mode, a surprise to me.
Suggested Improvements
At a light for the defroster (rear mirrors).
