Not my wife's car!
Vehicle2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Turbo S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
ReviewWhen it was time to replace my 95 GTI
VR6, much beloved for its power and
utility, my goal was 4 seats and at
least as much performance. My kids
wanted a "punch buggy." My wife loved
the snap orange New Beetle. I test
drove the 1.8T but felt it was a step
down, and had a rubbery shifter. Then I
test drove the Turbo S and fell in love
with the noticeable increase in power,
6 speed shifter, and great seats. My
wife can get an orange one next time;
mine's a black Turbo S!
Best FeaturesGet this car for its style, flair, usable power, and refinement: Smooth power band, peak torque from low rpm on up; 6 speed much better than 5 speed; great all-leather seats; nice sound system. Style!
Worst FeaturesMore responsive throttle (Hate the wire) Wheels are a matter of taste (18" wheels?) Front bumper & tailpipe extensions susceptible to scraping; watch that ground clearance! In dash CD should be standard! Color choices should be more unique to the Turbo S model.
