2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback

Review

I bought this car on impulse during a sad time in my life. It cheered me up for about two months. Unfortunately it has had four engine repairs, a broken hatchback door, battery died three times, and the a/c had to be replaced twice. I also replaced the clutch, air filters, and multiple electrical components. It's a beautiful, fun drive vehicle, but its reliability stinks. I am trading it in for a Toyota Corolla. I forgot to mention how lame VW dealerships are.

Favorite Features

This car is fun, handles well, has a great 5-speed transmission, is fast, and is pretty.

Suggested Improvements

Look at Toyota and figure out how it produces such reliable vehicles.
