2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


I bought the beetle 'cause it was my childhood dream to own one. The car drives awesome, the way it handles curves and braking etc., you never feel you are out of control. But sadly, I sold mine today not for comfort reasons but for reliability. The quality control is poor, the window trimming gives way, and the window switches are flaky, and after it crossed 50K miles, this year I had to go the dealer multiple times to get my engine check light fixed. When I talk to the service agents about the quality issues, they shrug their shoulders and say it is normal wear and tear. I own a camry with 80K miles and never had any problems. Reliability is one reason I would never buy VW or recommend it

Best Features

Handling, brakes and stereo system, simply awesome!!!

Worst Features

reliabilty and quality. VW needs to get its act togather if they think they want to be a long term viable company
