2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback

Review

Owning a New Beetle is a love-hate relationship. You love how it drives but hate how it keeps letting you down. I've had endless problems with this car from the start. The transmission started leaking the first week and had to be replaced. We've had endless brake problems due to a vacuum leak. It took Capistrano VW 4 times to diagnose it the first time it happened. Brakes have never worked well. The battery has been replaced twice. The interior is falling apart, door handles peeling, passenger sun visor won't stay up, side mirror knob broke off. We're going to replace it with something more reliable. It's a bad sign when the dealership knows you by sight.

Best Features

Cute car, good pickup, handles well. Wonderful standard features.

Worst Features

Use better parts and have better quality control. I won't buy another Volkswagen, no matter how cute they are.
