2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDi 2dr Hatchback

Review

I love the way the Volkswagen Beetle handles. The seats are infinitely adjustable and the steering wheel tilts and telescopes. Everyone can find a comfortable position. Add to all that, the 45 mpg around town that it gets and there should be no more to say. However, VW electronics are trash. Everything links into one central processing unit so if there is a problem with a door lock, the car may decide not to go! I typically spend $500 on non-routine maintainence items a year. Routine maintainence adds another $400 - 600. I am starting to do more of my own service as an effort to save money and keep my Bug rolling down the highway.

Favorite Features

The great gas mileage of the diesel engine and comfortable seats.

Suggested Improvements

Fix electronic and service garage issues (another whole topic). Put fabric in that does not stain as easily.
