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


What was most surprising to me was the
headroom. I'm 6'4" and I had the
opportunity to sit in one. Prior to
that I was sure I wouldn't fit.

I commute about 100 miles a day twice a
week to my job, and find the VW New
Beetle to be a viable commuter car.
This car is stylish and comfortable
when the commute gets tedious.

I have two issues with this car: no pop
out rear window, and the noise when the
sunfoof is fully open. I also have to
admit VW created a compromise on the
latter issue by creating a sequentially
opening window. This way you can open
the sunroof partially without
increasing the road noise.

Best Features

The folding front bucket seats, and the I-pod that was an incentive in 03. This car also has heated seats. I also love the way VW used the hatchback to create more storage space. That was a definite surprise, given how the beetle used space in the first cars.
