    2004 Volkswagen New Beetle - GLS T (M5) Hatchback

    Pros: Beautiful

    Cons: engine light keeps coming on and the gas peddle sticks on me.

    Advice: Be prepared to have it in the garage more than you have it.

    We bought our bettle about two months ago and it has been in the shop four times. They have had it a month and I have had it a month. The engine light keeps coming on and I am in great need of knowing if anyone has had a problem with the GAS PEDDLE STICKING. Mine has four times and it scares me to death, but they say there is no reason that it should do that because there is nothing there to make it stick. I am really afraid to drive it. It only has a little over 4000 miles on it. Pleas give some feed back on the gas peddle if anyone has had this problem.

    2004 Volkswagen New Beetle - GLS T (M5) Hatchback

    Pros: Performance

    Cons: Sun glare through the windows.

    Advice: Make sure that you are satisfied with the fact that it is a 2 person car (truly so).

    Performance and handling are excellant! It would be nice if VW would get into the 21st century with in-dash CD, however.

    2004 Volkswagen New Beetle - Turbo S (M6) Hatchback

    Pros: The performance of the turbo engine .

    Cons: Blind spots with the top up.

    Advice: Get the best deal that you can. They are pricey for the class of car.

    Test drive was impressive, but should have done the test with the convertible top both down and up. There are some small rattles that I didn't notice with the top down.
