2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


The GLS automatic tiptronic 4 cylinder convertible Bug rocks No comparison to the reg beetle, it's much more of a car in the way it rides as well as being loaded with the heated seats and outdoor mirrors, air, stereo, etc. It beats the hard top. I'm hoping it will last. I love the top and I wish the seats were a bit better, like real leather and with heavy rubber footing throughout instead of carpet. Other than that, it's cool. No problem yet with light on dash coming on like the past Beetle I owned, hopefully never will. VW is known for engine sensor light on a lot so the mechanics tell me, and through my own experience as well. Its great in the snow!

Best Features

I like them all

Worst Features

interior should be real leather not leatherette and the floor should be covered in heavy duty scuff resistant moldings on inside doors and front and rear seats
