2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback
Review
Very cute car and fun to drive, but extremely unreliable. If you don't live close to a volkswagen dealership don't even think of buying one. Been on tow truck almost as much as driven in the 15 months we owned it. Constant problems starting. Shudders when it starts and was told by dearlership this was normal. When it shuddered for them, they could not figure out what was wrong and wanted to replace many parts to try to fix it. Car was bought for 19 year old daughter. She loved it when it ran, but it was dead more than running. Just replaced shifter linkage because linkage is made out of plastic parts.
Favorite Features
Fun to drive when it was running.
Suggested Improvements
Don't make parts out of plastic. Teach the mechanics at the dealerships how to fix the numerous problems the bugs have.
