Great Car, Poor Volkswagen Quality
By Kaye on


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


When I first got in my Beetle I smiled
but after 1200 miles I had a frown. The
front seats bolsters had premature wear
on them!! I took it to the dealer they
replaced them under warranty, but they
are still showing some wear. The ride
is smooth, it handles great(it is a
little heavy) I love it. I am noticing
that when you open the door and the
window lowers a 1/4 inch it somtimes
hangs on the roof when I close the door.

Best Features

I love the convertable, heated seats, 6 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANS.!!! (Corvette only has 4) I love the blue dash and the stereo.

Worst Features

Have a better team of testers for quality of little things that might not seem a big deal but they are.
