2003 Volkswagen New Beetle - Good value

My car was a good value when it was purchased, because it had leather, heated seats, it was quick, and was used but the body style had not been changed, so it was fairly cheap. It is a girly car and I was a teenage girl so at the time it was great, but as time has gone on I have come to dislike the pigeon hole it puts me in on the road. I do think that it helps detract attention from the police because it is so girl and non-threatening and attention grabbing, but it gathers other kinds of attention that I would prefer not to have. The backseat is very small and only has 2 seatbelts, so the car can only have 4 people. I liked that the backseats could fold down, revealing versatile space.

There have been some mechanical issues that were very expensive to fix because it is not that kind of car that can be worked on just anywhere. The turbo S version is special so it was fun to have a unique car, in a field of cars that are everywhere. Overall it was a good value and had good amenities for the price point and time of life I was at.

I had almost everything I needed for my college break stuffed into my car including a dog and a cat. There were a number of times that I had all sorts of things inside my car that normally I wouldn't think would fit.

The best part of this car was the model. It was a Turbo S version, so there were not that many made of it, and it is nicer and faster than most cars in its class. There is 2 tone leather, heated seats, a sunroof, and extra stylings inside that make it unique. The engine is a turbo and puts out some power when necessary.

I moved a lot of things back and forth from college to home on breaks and my car could hold quite a bit of things. It was a fun, red, car that draws attention which can be a pro sometimes. If this car is broken down on the side of the road, you can bet you're a lot more likely to have someone stop for help! The sound system was fine and I haven't had any issues over 10 years. The wheels on my car were upgraded and I like the way it looks compared to other models of the same car. The heated seats also get very warm very quick so that helps in the winters.

There were many cons to my vehicle including performance issues, mechanical issues, and styling issues. For starters, there have been many mechanical issues that had recalls and many that didn't. A fuse box in my engine melted which was a frequent problem on forums and that caused me to break down in the middle of downtown Dallas at night. I have popped many tires which probably has to do with how low and bumpy my car is. My sunroof has electrical issues and opens and closes whenever it feels like it.

The backseat only has 2 seatbelts and the headroom is very slanted and low, so over bumps whoever is back there hits their head. As a personal issue, I do not enjoy driving a standard and there are 6 gears to get through. Not everyone can work on VWs so the maintenance is quite expensive. The fuel consumption is lower than advertised and especially poor in city driving. The car is very low to the ground so it scrapes fairly often, even when you try to avoid it. The cupholder is a huge drawback for me, because it is small and underneath an overhang so it is not possible to have a large or tall cup in it and you have to get around the gearshift to reach them.

2003 Volkswagen New Beetle - Happy to have purchased a Beetle

When the new Volkswagen Beetle came out I had to have one. I owned the old Beetle and just knew that it was a great car. I especially like the form of the new Beetle. It is very stylish and the colors are great. And no, I did not get red with black dots - although I was thinking about it. The quality of the Volkswagen Beetle is exceptional. It is very well made and everything looks finished and polished. There are no flaws with the interior. The dashboard is designed very well and with lots of thought. The seats are very comfortable and easy to adjust. Even it is a rather smaller size car, there is plenty of room inside.

Especially because the car is looking so hip and with the great stereo you are certainly the talk of the neighborhood.

One night I went to a restaurant at the beach and parked on the side of the parking lot. When we came out there were 10 beetles just like mine, but different colors, parked next to me. And one person put a sign up facing the parking lot, saying: "Tonight we have a bug invasion - maybe we should call the exterminator :)"

The seats are very comfortable. Interior is very well made. There is enough space inside to seat 4 people comfortable. Fuel consumption is very good. Driving is very quiet and smooth. There are no audible noises coming form the chassis or the motor that do not belong to the normal operation of the vehicle.

Beetle 2003 price vw


NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Some Bugs are hard to kill. After a brief reprieve, the Volkswagen Beetle, the original version, faces extinction today. Volkswagen's plant in Mexico -- the only one in the world that still makes the old-style Beetle -- finishes one last gussied-up retro edition of the plucky, curvacious little car, ending the model's 70-year run.

The last  
The last "Ultima Edicion" Beetle rolls off the line.

More than 21.5 million of the cars have hit the world's roads in that time. The last 3,000 old Beetles were special, dubbed the "Ultima Edicion." That's Spanish for "Final Edition." Basically, they were the good old Beetle, only a bit fancier. They were made in the colors Aquarius Blue and Harvest Moon beige and sported chrome trim and mirrors, body-colored rims and whitewall tires.

The Ultima Edicion Beetles cost 84,000 Mexican pesos at dealer lots -- about $8,000 -- compared to 68,000 pesos for the regular version that stopped production on July 10, or about $6,500.

The beloved Bug

From Iceland to Malaysia, the original Beetle has attracted devoted fans like no other car. A redesigned, sleeker version called the New Beetle was launched in 1998, but at a price of $20,000 to $25,000 it is no longer a car for anyone with a few bucks.

For the 300 Mexicans who work on the Beetle production line at the plant in the central Mexican state of Puebla, it will be like parting with a member of the family. The factory will continue producing the New Beetle.

In 1996, Mexico became the last country to produce the old Beetle and since 1998 the car has been sold only there. The Volkswagen plant in Puebla also is the only one worldwide to produce the New Beetle, but they are mainly for export.

In Mexico City, the bug, or "vocho" as it is known locally, is a stalwart. Painted white and green, it is the standard model used by taxi drivers to crawl through heavy traffic. A decision by Mexico City's local government to give out future permits only to taxis with four doors helped to seal the two-door bug's fate.

Dark beginnings

The car that became the VW Beetle originally was conceived by Hitler while he was imprisoned in 1924 after an attempted coup. He conceived of an inexpensive car that typical German families could buy. They could be driven along the sweeping highways that Hitler wanted to build across Germany.

In 1933, through a combination of backroom politics and murder, Hitler seized power in Germany. The following year, he gave the task of designing the car to Ferdinand Porsche.

By 1938, designs were completed, a factory site selected and Hitler announced the car's name: The KdF-Wagen. KdF stood for "Kraft durch Freude" or "strength through joy." The name never became widely used by the German public, though, said James Flammang, author of the book "Volkswagen: Beetles, Buses and Beyond." It was more commonly called the "Volkswagen," or "people's car."

As it turned out, though, no ordinary Germans ever got a Volkswagen while the Nazis were in power. By the outbreak of war in 1939, only about 630 cars had been built. Almost all of them went to German military officers and to Hitler himself.

Kommandurwagen 
World War II Kommandurwagen

No Beetles, as they were later called, were built during the war. The car was used as the basis of various military vehicles, though. Among them were the amphibious Schwimmwagen, the jeep-like Kubelwagen and the Kommandurwagen which looked like a fat-tired Beetle 4x4.

The mechanical and electrical guts of some of those Volkswagen-based military vehicles were used to build the early Porsche 356 sports cars -- ancestors of the modern Porsche 911 -- said Chris Barber, author of the book "The Birth of the Beetle."

After World War II, under the jurisdiction of the British Military, production of the car, now named the Volkswagen, was restarted. By 1949 the car was being exported and two convertible versions, a 2-seater and a 4-seater, were available. Today, the 2-seater, made by a company called Hebmueller, is a valuable collectors' car.

The chubby, curvy little car took off, quickly becoming a symbol of the German economic miracle. As its popularity spread, the Beetle became the car of choice of the rebellious post-war generation in the United States and Europe, for whom it represented freedom from the tight social restrictions of the time.

By 1955 1 million Volkswagens had been produced. A VW sedan -- the name "Beetle" didn't become official until the late 1960s -- cost about $1,500, according to the Web site Nadaguides.com. Subtle changes appeared in the car over time, including changes to the rear window and increases in engine size. VW introduced the slightly longer Super Beetle -- boasting more in the front "trunk" -- in 1971.

The last hard-top old Beetle was sold in the U.S. in 1977, costing about $3,700. That was a little more than the competing Ford Pinto. The last convertible was offered for sale in 1980 for about $6,500.

By that time, demand had ebbed in the face of more technologically advanced small cars. Also, the Beetle's air-cooled engine couldn't meet stringent U.S. air quality regulations, Flammang said.  Top of page

2003 Volkswagen Beetle


Fahrvergnügen! If your looking for a "fun driving experience" the Volkswagen's two-door New Beetle is for you. The 2003 Volkswagen Beetle takes second generation to new galaxies with the introduction of the much-anticipated convertible. Those who have been on board with the now defunct Cabrio can now alternatively find themselves venturing off on to new inter-galactical ventures with even more room. Each trim level offers plenty of under-the-hood options to satiate all discriminations and prowess. Lots of extras abound as part of the standard package, with Volkswagen's usual line-up of fun-ctional add-ons.

Available Models
The 2003 Volkswagen Beetle is available in various engine-variated models: the GL, GLS, GLX, Turbo S, and GLS TDI (diesel), all of which are two-door, four-seaters available as convertible or…not.

Interior Features
Standard features include air conditioning, cruise control, six-speaker cassette stereo system, power locks with keyless entry, pollen/dust/odour filter, folding rear seat, outside-temperature indicator, and tachometer. Up the line to the GLS, you can find the addition of controls for power sunroof, and power convertible top. The GLX ups the anti with leather upholstery, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and self-dimming rear-view mirror.

Exterior Features
On the exterior of the 2003 Volkswagen Beetle, convenience and luxury features never cease to delight. Heated power mirrors with turn signals on the GL, the addition of fog lights, and alloy wheels to the GLS, with heated washer nozzles, rain-sensing wipers, and rear spoiler added to the GLX.

Performance
Tech specs offer several configurations on deck. GL trim-level models are equipped with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, capable of 115 horsepower and 122 lb-ft of torque. Next up on the list is a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine with 150 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque (GLS and GLX trims). GLS TDI models have a 1.9-liter, in-line, turbo-charged direct injection 4-cylinder diesel engine, specially engineered for maximum efficiency. It generates 90 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque and has a fuel economy of 42/49 mpg (city/hwy) for manuals, 34/45 mpg (city/hwy) for automatics. The new Turbo S is given a beefed-up 1.8-liter 4-cylinder motor with 180 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque.

Pass with conviction! Transmissions manifest with a 5-speed manual or optional adaptive 4-speed automatic, or the extra-terrestrial 6-speed manual on the Turbo S model. The New Beetle's estimated unleaded fuel mileage? 24/31 (city/hwy) mpg (based on 5 speed manual).

Safety and Security
Nothing is spared for your safety with the 2003 Volkswagen Beetle. Standard features include an anti-theft alarm system with remote panic button, remote keyless entry, and a central power locking system. Also standard are dual front and front side impact airbags, anti-intrusion side door beams, and a telescoping height adjustable steering column that is collapsible upon impact. Brakes that are ABS power-assisted, dual-circuit with vented front discs and solid rear discs provide utmost dependability. Up the line to the GLS & GLX, you can also see an anti-skid system.
