Can one car be this fun?
By BillyT on


2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


This has been my favorite car ever.
The retro stylings of the VW were my
first attraction, then being the
ragtop, and lets not forget the gas
milage! It's a say something car with
practicality in mind. I am a tall guy
and was concerned about comfort, not a
worry, believe it or not it's quite
roomy! (I wouldn't put a tall person
in the back seat for any lengthy
amount of time, as the back seat area
is limited) It comes with a lot of
standard features, a definite plus! If
you like to get noticed, this is the
car for you! What kid didn't dream of
owning an orange bug? LOL! PUNCH
BUG! "ouch"

Best Features

The ragtop goes down in an amazing 13 seconds! I love electric locks, windows, heated seats, AC, tilt wheel,rear GLASS window with defrost, the wonderful colors it comes in. The roominess of the cabin.

Worst Features

My only complaint is, the radio antenna is a thin wire in the windsield. Although it improves the appearence of the vehicle, the radio doesn't pick up stations as well as I would like. Thank goodness for satellite radio!
