Gotta have one...

2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


This car is pure fun. I used to drive a
'91 Saab, but the body style got
boring on the newer model... so I
defected. My friends thought I was
nuts when I was considering this
car, but the review once they rode in
my Bug was "this is the coolest car I
have ever been in." The pep of the
turbo rocks and the luxury features
on the GXL are a great value. I got
everything I wanted for $22,600 vs.
$30+ for everything else I was
considering. Picture a sunny day,
sunroof open, stereo cranked,
leather wrapped wheel in hand,
turbo kicking in on a straight-away...
sounds like a beach day to me.

Best Features

Auto deploy spoiler, heated leather seats, spacious fold down trunk (skis fit inside), Monsoon stereo, rain sensing wipers... Better yet, review the standard features list in the brochure, they didn't miss a thing.

Worst Features

Some slight rattles in hatch need to be resolved.
