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


This is our third Volkswagen, and our second new Beetle. We decided to go with the TDI on this sunflower yellow purchase. Overall the interior and exterior are pretty much the same as our 2002 turbo GLX Beetle, with the exception of the diesel engine. So far the Beetle has lived up to everything that Volkswagen has promised from it. The fit and finish are excellent. For a diesel it is amazingly quiet and is responsive to acceleration. It has surpassed our expectations on mile to the gallon. My fun meter is always pegged whenever I drive either Beetle. I can't say enough good things about the new beetle. Suspension, handling, economy, acceleration, features, fun, it is peerless in its class.

Best Features

Leather heated seats, power sun roof, the bodies shape, smooth driving at any speed.

Worst Features

I don't think, as least as far as I could tell, that this model is available with the 17 inch premium wheel package. Other than that, absolutely flawless.
