2002 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


I just recently bought a 2002 TDI. It was very hard to find a diesel. After several months finding one that I wanted and was willing to trade in my Chevy "gas guzzler" Tahoe, I purchased my Beetle. Since owning it, I have done nothing but enjoy the ride and the gas price. It is nice to have a vehicle that gets great gas mileage. I just got 34 mpg in the city. I would recommend a diesel beetle to anyone. The noise is minimal and well worth it. If you really can't stand the diesel noise, which is a lot quieter than the trucks, crank up the radio.

Best Features

The sunroof, can't stop opening it!!!

Worst Features

Multi CD changer where you put all the cds in the stereo instead of the trunk. Cupholders... they are worthless to a point. It is for one drink only, unless the driver is drinking a kid size drink. Maybe a little more horsepower for the diesel instead of the 90 hp.
