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


Ok, I'm a french canadian and I will
get to the point about children
safety. This car is not legal in
Canada for children seat because it
doesn't permit the installation of a
top (third) point anchor. We learn
that after the purchase. VW said that
the car is equiped with LATCH system,
but it doesn't (the third point is not
there at the top.) For that, this car
should be 0/10. The children safety is
the top priority of any car builder. I
plan the get a lawyer until VW find a
solution. I will go to the media. For
the rest of the the car itself, it is
very good.

Best Features

Turbo, front seat, ESP, shifter.

Worst Features

Children safety (3 points, LATCH + the top anchor). This is necessary in Canada.
