2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


My mom actually bought this car a year 2000, and bought it in 2008. From the start, it was making a very loud noise from the engine, til i figured it was the air pump. So we replaced that and it takes off very fast! I have seen some reviews on this car, and i do not think this car gets the good reviews it deserves. If people actually take care of the problem and know exactly what it is, then it will be good to you. Anybody could buy a car brand new, but eventually it will need to be fixed, and something will break down. This car is running good and fast even after soo long. I could say that interior is cheap, but just driving this is very cool. even the small size makes it great anywhere.

Favorite Features

My favorite thing is the 1.8 Turbo engine that puts out a kick to take off. The size is not too small, but good enough to get around without having a bulky car like a sedan that has been stretched out with unnecessary space. I think this car would be good for people that are single, or dont have too much baggage (family). Saves on gas and a good car if you know exactly what you are doing with a German car.

Suggested Improvements

I think it could have a high value on the interior. Could have made the dash area a little smaller. Could have made the the back seat area with more room, but with the new Beetle coming out, i think it will figure it out.
