2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GL TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


If everybody had one of these, it wouldn't be as much fun. The TDI can pull a 1500 lb. boat and trailer better than a gas with all that torque and still get over 32 miles to the gallon.

Best Features

Lots of headroom, even with the sunroof. You can elevate your seat and drive like a busy-body or pump your seat to the bottom, tilt back and cruise cool.

Worst Features

The engine should have been in the back where it belongs ... like a Porsche. That's why the dash board is so deep, and the rear head room is less than an old Beetle.
