Love My Beetle BUT....no clearance under
By Rene' on


2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Just purchased the beetle three days ago
and am quite pleased. Actually the
process was so smooth and easy however
am disappointed in one feature that
seems impossible to alter...clearance
under the vehicle. Therefore I feel the
dealership needs to make sure the
potential buyer understands the cars
limitations in this regard. See

Best Features

Feels spacious inside. Love the inside lighting at night. Very comfortable ride. Easy to drive and shift. Great power from 2nd to 3rd!!!! Surprised how roomy the trunk is.

Worst Features

Found out about lack of clearance when attempting to drive into my driveway (a "normal" slope)first time;scraped the front lower edge of the car causing it to pop off and crack. Had 17 inch wheels but it didn't make a difference.I am able to back in and out of the driveway.
