Front & Rear Impact
By Dora on


2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I actually have a 2005 Beetle Conv. I
was hit from the rear by an SUV doing @
40-45 mph. I was at a stop. The impact
pushed me into & under the Ford F150 in
front of me, and pushed us both through
the intersection. My air bag deployed
and my rear seat roll over protection
deployed. My car was a total loss at an
estimate in excess of $21,000. I bought
another beetle.

Best Features

It is sooo much fun to drive. I love to see the kids 'punch-buggy' each other as I go by. I love the turbo. It drives like you are gliding on air.

Worst Features

The only thing I would change is I would put a little finger space on the trunk to make it easier to lift open after hitting the trunk release.
