2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback

Review

I had problems with my car a week after delivery. Here are the problems. 1) Rear hatch not closing properly. 3 visits to the shop before it was fixed. 2) Door not shutting flushed. 3) Broken power window and switch. 5) Gas flap servo broken twice. 6) Both honks broken and a dead battery. 7) Broken speedometer cable. 8) Oxygen sensor broken twice. 9) Door handle cover plastic is peeling. 10) Paint on steering spooke is peeling. I should have gotten rid of the car a long time ago. This time I will as the last repair bill was $750, not to mention the time lost and the inconvenience I had to put up with.

Favorite Features

Interior design and driving sensation.

Suggested Improvements

Use quality components and improve upon build quality. Can't keep customers with inferior products. Those of you who are considering buying a VW, think hard. There are better cars out there than this Mexican built POS !! This is my FIRST and LAST VW !!
