Second Childhood / Cool car

2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


I was looking for anything but another
minivan. My sons all have their own
cars now and my daughter and I were
looking for something fun. She's 9 and
I am 45. I remembered my fathers VW
bug and it brought back many good
memories. We bought a mello-yellow VW
(2004) convertible bug. The car is fun,
handles well and we love the car!!
The VW stero/radio and CD player
in the car is fantastic! I drive
a lot for work and now I can
blast the beach boys on the CD player
with the top down/work/save on gas (the
milage is great)/all with a smile on my
face. I would buy the car again! Even
my 18 year old son says the sound
system is awsome!

Best Features

The car handles well and is very good in bad weather. It handled well driving through Huricane Alex in North Carolina recently. The stero system won't be beat! I love the convertible top, even with arthritis I can open/close it by myself!

Worst Features

It could use more storage space for purse/change and a place to keep papers when the top is down. More cup holders and an ashtray. I'd like to have one with onstar! Is there a way to reduce the dust that gathers daily on the large dash??
