A Car With Personality

2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I picked it over the BMW and Mercedes
CLK convertible. It says, "I'm fun and
I'm happy" whereas the other
convertible say, "I'm a snob." VW is
one of the only convertible that
doesn't strive to something it's not.
It's not trying to be a luxury car.
This car has so much more personality.
Being a former BMW driver, I surprised
myself when I picked the VW (fully
loaded). I live in California, so I
have the top down all the time. I
can't even begin to tell you the number
of people that give me compliments on
it...while I am driving my car. My
whole family loves it and sometimes I
find my car missing because someone
else borrowed it.

Best Features

The sound system is awesome. My favorite has to be the butt warmers. I also like the solar powered battery charger.

Worst Features

There is a cigarette lighter thing to charge your cell phone in, but there is not actually a cigarette lighter. Be careful with the windblocker. I've scratched the paint of in places just trying to take it off and put it on.
