2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


2000 w/45k miles,2.0 motor,cloth
interior,silver.Love it.Seats very
great.Feeling of quality.Love
the curved window line.Has enough
power,but just enough.Plenty of
headroom.Only had minor problems.
Switches for the window&the parking
brake broke,the AC went out,&there was
a minor electrical problem.All fixed
under warranty quickly.The car comes
with service&bumper to bumper coverage
for 50,000 miles.I wouldn't worry about
reliability.Think of how many old
Volkswagens you see on the road.Even if
you have some problems, what other car
has this much style to offer.I'll take
a few problems over driving an econo-
box anyday.
