My '04 Bug
By my04bug on


2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


The car is fun to drive and fairly economical (the turbo takes premium). My only complaints have been with dashboard warning lights that light with no apparent reason, a center console that cannot be locked, and a balky roof that has had to be repaired on several occasions.

Best Features

The convertible top is fun and the Monsoon sound system is superb.

Worst Features

I say a prayer every time the convertible top comes back up after being down for a long time. There has to be a more reliable system.
