2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback
We bought our 2000 Volkswagen Beetle new and we take care if it. The check engine light has come on every few months since we've had it. Notable fixes include, MAFS (x2), sensor (~one month ago) and it is on again. At $80 just to find out what is wrong, it gets expensive. Also, the passenger window wouldn't roll up, the door switches are broken, and the armrest latch busted. VW service wants $800 to change two brakes, and an arm and a leg for everything else. Don't waste your time. I've had two other good experiences with VW but this car was a mistake. AVOID THIS CAR!
It is very fun to drive, except when you have a Christmas tree of something-wrong indicator lights blaring at you.
