2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Overall, I love my Beetle Convertible.
It's a ton of fun to drive. It turned
a lot of heads this summer with the
mellow yellow paint and the top down.
Its certainly not a fast car, but it
will get moving on the highway. The
cup holders are hard for more then one
person to use and the back seat is
tight. If you take it on a trip, plan
on packing lite. If you don't have
anyone in the back seat, use the
windscreen; it really cuts down the
wind and makes for only a moderate wind
on the highway. If you buy and the
windscreen doesn't come with it; it is
worth the money to buy one. The car is
great in the snow as well.

Best Features

Convertible top for the summer Heated seats for the winter

Worst Features

Move the cup holders; make them easier to use. The car is built really tight; I did have a problem with my drivers door rubbing the front fender; VW fixed this problem on my Beetle under warrenty; but it is still a concern so I no longer open the door all the way.
