Buy a Bug!
By michaels on


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


I love my convertible! I have wanted to
get a new beatle for a while and I am
happy I purchased it. The tiptronic is a
fun way to speed up for merging and the
S or Sport Mode is nice for country
drives. While the GLS isn't going to win
anybody over who just HAS to zoom
everywhere they go, this bug has got
some pep to it. An overall fun way to drive.

Best Features

Overall design of the car. A great update to the line at Volkswagen.

Worst Features

The wings that come out of the side while the top comes down could be more sturdy.If you bang one (mind you, it's my fault I did not wait for them to come all the way down before loading lugggage) it is unnerving if it doesn't fold back.I had to bend it back and it works fine now.
