Pretty, but a Gamble

2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback
Review
Buying a 2000 VW Bug is a bit of a gamble, you can get a wonderful car, or a unreliable lemon, so its best to get your hands on a 2003+ model. I have had a myriad of electrical failures / hiccups with my Beetle, and I get the feeling that this wouldn't be so dire if I had a better dealership. I've also had the problems with coolant pumps, engine speed sensors, the fragile window switches and more recently the HVAC controls. Also, some of the interior trim chips/wears very easily. Yet I still can't hate my car, it's a good car for driving around town, gets a lot of attention, feels well planted on the highway, is very tough chassis-wise and it's generally pleasant. But it could be so MUCH more rewarding
Favorite Features
Ilove the interior / exterior design, safety features, and benign but not boring driving dynamics.
Suggested Improvements
Improve the reliability and build quality.
