Displaces Mosquito as Most Annoying Bug
By Wolf S. Berg on


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


The four sources of Beetle mega-
annoyance: The non-negotiable light
switch; the auto locking system that
cannot be overidden for more than 15
seconds; the keyless remote that
requires a flashlight to operate after
sundown; the BIG ONE -impossibility of
removing dust from the fly paper-
surface dash and cloth upholstery. what
a mess! All unimportant but a constant
pain.I only have 5K miles for C's sake.

Best Features

Great ride; sound system;owner's manual; exterior styling; safety features; sunroof; MANUAL seat adjustments; non digital instrumentation, only women drive them.

Worst Features

See four sources of annoyance above; move front turn signal lights to top of front fenders. Replace awful color of instrument lighting; move to central interior dome light; market to males.
