2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback

Review

Bought this car used with only 26,000 miles on it. It has always been very fun to drive and the handling is great (except in the snow). But the reliability is the worst of any car I have ever owned, and I have had some bad ones! The list of problems includes the permanantly on check engine light, replaced fan control unit at 65,000 miles, air bag problems, broken fuel latch and trunk latch, knob for mirrors fell off, broken arm rest latch, steering rack replaced twice, air conditioner went out at 68,000 miles, broken knobs on the stero, some dash lights are burnt out, etc. I could go on and on forever. And NOTHING on the car is inexpensive to fix. It even requires premium gas because of the turbo. Don't make the same bad decision I made.

Favorite Features

Handles well. Fun to drive.

Suggested Improvements

Keep the fun to drive part...everything else needs to be redone.
