2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Shortly after purchasing my bug, I made
plans to drive from Chicago to
California. A solo trip with diversions
north and south of the direct route. I
travelled through 13 states, through
many twisting mountain passes and
boiling deserts, and this car was
atreat to drive! Tight turns on
hairpin corners-she held at three times
the recommended speed. National
parks with a 360 degree view with the
top down! Close enough to pet the
buffalo at Custer State Park in SD. My
bug handled the snow and off road
terrain at Crazy Horse Monument. My
6CD changer and Monsoon sound system
blasted and relieved other drivers from
my questionable singing voice.

Best Features

I bought my bug in the winter in Chicago-so first I would say how warm I was-heated seats!!!!Handled great in the snow! Love the Monsoon sound system.

Worst Features

The only thing I would wish for is the Turbo-she's a little sluggish at the start-and PLEASE-longer sun visors!!!
