Lots of problems
By Mark Niska on
2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback
Original wiper blades made screeching
sound. Told they were aftermarket.They
came with car. Out of stock. They
wouldn't send to me. I replaced on my
own. Battery died within 30 days. Road
service never showed up. Gas tank
filler lid wouldn't open. Inition was
faulty. Several problems with indicater
lights. Most recent "engine malfunction"
Dealer hasn't even looked at.Car at
dealer for 5 days. Floor mats useless.
Poor design on tabs that hold in place.
Call to owner of dealership refused
eventhough they were on premises.
Every time oil is check it is down 2
quarts. Told this is "normal" Enough
Either stop making New Beetle or
drastically improve workmanship and
bring dealers in line with acceptable
customer service standards
