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


After reading about all the problems on the New Beetle Convertible, I had to review mine. After nearly 20,000 miles it's been flawless except for a turn signal issue that the dealer addressed. Dealer told us to ALWAYS use the top cover or risk having the top torn away at highway speeds.

Best Features

Blue sky above. Wind in what used to be my hair. Wind blocker actually works. 1.8 Turbo is strong!

Worst Features

More lumbar support in seats. Better top cover. Sun visors are useless.
