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


Averageing 40 mpg @ 40% highway 60%
city driving with the 1.9 TDI 6A. It's
pretty peppy to boot. Better gas milage
than the hybrids at a fraction of the
cost. NO SMOKE or SMELL and great
mileage, why would anyone not get the
TDI?? I paid 17,200 plus tax and I got
a price quote from deales from this web
site in my area. Very pleased!

Best Features

I realy like the diesel. You have to be a complete fool not to get it. Very reliable and economical for the price. It's amusing to watch kids punch each other when you drive by.

Worst Features

Definately the cup holders are POOR placement. No arm rest / storage in the GL model. Didn't realize how much it's needed.
