2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDi 2dr Hatchback
Good car. Two major components needed
to be replaced (clutch and cruise
control) but otherwise mostly
minor things have broken. Its
small, fun to drive, holds things
alright with the seat folded down.
Comfortable on the highway and gets an
unbelievable 44+ mpg at 90mph, 49 at
normal speeds. Enough power, it feels
equally as fast as a standard beetle.
Interior is funky, you either like it or
you dont. Everything was easily
replaired but this is the list of things
that have broken: mirror adjuster
broke off, window switches, center
console latch, the drivers window
The fact that it is plenty fast and
still gets great gas mileage is the best
thing about the car.
Better heat, its struggles to heat up
the cabin when the temp is below 20F.
