I love this car!
By Ron Bruce on


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


I just sold my Audi 4000S which I had
for 19 years. I was nervous about
getting this New Beetle, but I took the
plunge. Three months and 5,300 miles
later, I am so delighted with it. Even
though it has plenty of power, people
do not expect it to be a hill climber
or a speeder, and so I think it is cut
some slack surveillance-wise.

Best Features

Naturally it looks like a cartoon and makes me happy whenever I get into it. It has so much more power than the old Beetles and even my old Audi 4000S, that I feel totally satisfied. I do not understand the Car Talk radio program's reference to "unreliability."

Worst Features

One should be able to order upscale seats for even more comfort, and the dash should be designed to upgrade the stereo system. One should be able to get in dash CD, digital radio, etc.
