2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Fun to drive. Still gets smiles.
Two airbags replaced already. One time
check engine light kept coming on...was
some module problem. Front turn signals
have repeatedly messed up, (started
blinking way too fast), dealer has
never resolved the problem. Well built
car, lots of fun. Needs the VR6 engine
and all wheel drive to make it what I
really want.

Best Features

two way power sun roof, heated leather seats, heated mirrors and windshield squirters, STYLING! fit and finish are very good, and the handling is great..a joy to drive. Also, the fold down and fully removeable rear seat..gives it lots of room for our camping equipment.

Worst Features

Fix the electrical bugs that keep popping up. FOUR WHEEL DRIVE (AWD), more power! (VR6 engine). more color choices...but...especially give this thing ALL WHEEL DRIVE!
