Orange you a fun car?
By Bob Twofifty on


2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I've only had the car a month. It is
a fun car to drive, and gets noticed.
I ordered the Sundown Orange and it
reminds me of a little hot rod. I had
read reviews that the car was
underpowered, but I have had no
problems with pick-up or top end
speed. All of the controls are well
marked and easily operated. The GLS
comes standard with alloy wheels, 4
wheel disc brakes, cloth interior and
cassette deck. I added heated seats
and a 6 disc player in the console and
still paid under list. I've owned a
lot of cars, both foreign and domestic
and barring a major catastrophy, this
is the best car I've ever owned.

Best Features

My last car was a base Jeep Wrangler (base, as in no radio, no air, no doors, etc.) So I am enjoying all the features. My wife drives a Land Rover, and I feel the power options on this car are better laid out and perform better.

Worst Features

I don't want for anything when I am in this car. If you want a Beetle it's got everything you need. If you want a Ferarri or Mercedes, then you should buy that car to get your added power or luxury.
