Fun Yet Pragmatic

2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Handles extremely well. It's not a
sports car, but you're never lacking
for power. Great gas mileage makes
this a terrific commuter car for me.
Even though it's a diesel, it isn't
noisy. It has extra headroom
(important for tall guys like me).
Extras, such as the alloy wheels,
carbon trim, side airbags, rear disk
brakes, electic windows/locks are all
standard features. Hey, it really is
fun to drive!

Best Features

50 Mile per gallon! You only have to fill the tank once a month.

Worst Features

The cup holders are the only negative I have found so far. They stick a bit and the liner sometimes pops out.
