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


When the New Beetle Hatchback came out
in 1998, I knew that I wanted have one
as my very own. But once the word was
out about the Convertible I had to get
it instead. I own a Sundown Orange one
w/black-grey interior....which was
very hard to get (limited availibity
in NJ) and I absoultely love it! Great
handling, quiet smooth ride, love the
blue and red dash...rear seats are
more spacious than I thought. Trunk
space is a little disappointing, but
the head room and "open" feel of the
interior makes up for it. It's almost
like a clown car...looks so small
outside, but once inside you feel so
comfortable. My tallest friends (at
around 6'2") fit without any trouble.
Limited glove box storage....

Best Features

exterior color, blue/red dash, great gas milage, soft top latch and switch makes it very easy to lower/raise roof; intergrated blinker signals in side mirrors

Worst Features

Hook-up for iPod, cellphone. Standard CD-cassette indash stereo , better interior lighting system (light off of rear-view mirror is limited); easier adjusting air/heating vents to control air flow; folding rear seat
