2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback
I have had my new Beetle for almost
three years now. As cute as it is (and
it is!), I have had many minor
frustrations for such a new/low mileage
car. Such as: gas cap release lever
broke, passenger side window broke (in
down position, of course), window
switch came right off in my hand. As
someone who only owned Japanese cars,
my first and only VW has been very
disappointing. I would not buy another
VW made in Mexico.
This car is fun...easy to park, fun to
drive, great stereo system.
Improve cup holders, visors (the
current visors are for show only and do
not block the sun...they are useless),
improve gas mileage. Implement quality
checks. Recall these cars and replace
faulty window switches. Build QUALITY.
