2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


I was really nervous plunking down $22,000 cash for this car, but so far I'm thrilled with it. It's so comfortable -- tons of room inside. The engine has lots of power and it's getting more than 40MPG. I debated between a hybrid and this, and I'm so glad I got this -- it's so much more fun to drive compared to the relatively blah hybrids. The back seat is really, really tight -- not a problem for me since I have no kids, but if you need to use the back seat for anything more than storing stuff, you probably shoudl think twice. But I really have no complaints at all.

Best Features

Definitely the roomy interior -- it feels like a much larger car.

Worst Features

None--so far it's perfect!
