2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback

Review

We are nearing the end of our 3 yr lease term on a 2000 Turbo New Beetle and I couldn't be happier! This is without question the most unreliable vehicle I have owned in the last 12 years (out of 8 vehicles). I have owned 2-Chryslers, 2-Jeeps, 2-BMWs, Pontiac and now this junker...what a mistake. Problems: too many O2 sensors to count; catalytic converter; dead car (only to start mysteriously within 1 hr); gas cap cable; emergency brake cable; coolant loss (where did THIS go?); etc, etc. 2-yrs and 24K miles on the warranty...should have been a message at time of purchase: VW KNEW THIS ONE WAS A STINKER! Buy American!

Take lessons from Daimler Chrysler or Toyota.
