2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


In the year and a month I have owned
this car, it's brought me nothing but
smiles and enjoyment. The turbodiesel
engine is smooth, quick, and rather
quiet. The power comes on strong and
keeps coming until redline. It's a
great highway cruiser and long-distance
traveller. Why go hybrid? Get a TDI!
It's more fun!

Best Features

The mileage! I'm regularly getting in the upper-40 MPG range, once averaging 56mpg for the tank. Passing power is there, the heated seats work great, I love the new console design. It's been a great car so far!

Worst Features

Bigger sun visors, really. That, and an autodim interior mirror. Not much else I can think of.
