2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
Beetle is a very good car overall, with
only a few annoying quirks. The ride is
sporty, yet supple where it needs to
be. Very easy to control. Just try to
get it on 3 wheels or to spin out of
control...it ain't easy. Braking is top
of the line & out performs most
Japanese cars & many domestics. No one
can match the headroom, not even a
truck,unless your in a convertible.
seats,etc are standard. It has an
excellent safety record too. Beetle has
a solid feel to it.
Favs are the nifty shaped keys,power
hatch,power gas lock,rear passenger map
lights,cut outs in the front seats for
the rear passengers. This car is much
bigger than it looks from the outside.
Engineers thought alot about the target
Needed are extendable
sunvisors,split-folding rear seat,&
better fuel economy.The visors are
completely useless for side use. A full
size stroller doesn't fit well into the
trunk if the baby is in the back seat.
If you want fuel economy,opt for the
diesel or manual trans.
2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This is such a fun car to drive. I
wanted a beetle in the 60's but was
young and could not afford one.
Finally got a Beetle last year after
all kids had left home. I think the
design of this new beetle is so much
better than the original. It is
Heavier and roomier and I feel much
safer in it than I think I would have
been in the orignal.
It handles like a dream and has a
smoothe ride not unlike much bigger,
heavier cars. It has met my
expectations many times over. I am
really glad I got it.
I plan to give it to my daughter as a
college graduation gift, (she has
wanted one for years) and then buy a
new convertible beetle for me.
my favorite features are: the Sunroof,
ease of handling, looks (I get
complements all the time), color (cyber
green), smoothe comfortable ride.
