2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I am a 17.5 year old male, who has been driving this car since I turned 16. I started driving it and really liked the ride. It was very smooth. The insides of the doors were peeling when I got it and continued to peel as I owned it for the next year and a half. I didn't like the looks that I got while driving it, most likely because I am a man. The cupholders are ridiculously placed, and the rubber things come out so the cups don't stay, when they actually fit under the clearance. I had to replace the brake light switch twice because it failed and wouldn't let me take it out of park. I was late to work twice. Also, a belt wore out towards the end. Overall this is a decent first car, but I am never buying another Beetle and probably not a VW either.
Favorite Features
It has a great stock sound system, is very comfortbale, and has a smooth ride.
Suggested Improvements
This car is unreliable, has terrible interior quality, and has bad cup holder placement.
