Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Turbo


I drive a 2003 VW Turbo Beetle. I had recently bought a bike rack that just strapped onto my car. I had been told that it would fit, but when I tried to install it, it did not fit. I just want to be sure that before I go and buy something else to try, that it will 100 fit my car so that I dont get burned again. If you could just let me know as soon as possible, I would really appreciate it. Thanks and have a nice day.

The Draw Tite hitch part # 24679 is a confirmed fit for your 2003 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo. It will be the best way to go about installing a bike rack on your vehicle as well since it will be the most secure and won't touch any metal surfaces.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Camber 2 # TH9058. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

If you plan on carrying any women's or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
