Loving my 2005 New Beetle Convertible!
By Bsktlover on


2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


This is my second New Beetle, the first being a 1999 New Beetle, 5-speed manual, and not a turbo. The first time I drove my 2005 turbo on the highway, it felt so good - when I wanted to pass a big motor home or semi truck, no problem! Just step on the gas and I was there! The fuel economy on this vehicle is amazing, too - I have averaged of 29 miles per gallon so far, with a total mileage so far on the vehicle of about 8,000 miles. And fun to drive - nothing could beat it!

Best Features

The way that the New Beetle feels on the road is my favorite thing about it.

Worst Features

The only improvement I can think of that could be made is if they offered the VW New Beetle in a hybrid.
