A nice Bug
By Ally on


2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


The pros: Fun with top down, people love to look at it, reliable, zippy power, vinyl no dead cows to sit on, windsheild is not in your face, lots of head room. Some things that disapoint me: The stupidly short sun visor that doesnt even cover 1/4 of the window to block the sun from the side. I had to get one of those kids sun shades that suctions to the giant side window. The seats are not made for long rides or if you have any kind of back trouble. The pedals are high so if you are tall, its hard to get comfortable. I still have trouble adjusting to the seat, doesn't go back far enough. The back seat is for kids only, it has no comfort. I like the car overall but the comfort is poor. Not it is not for old people.

Best Features

Its zippy power, cute looks, easy top to use.

Worst Features

Better seat comfort! Better sun visors. Bigger trunk.
