2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

VW seemed to solve lots of early-model
assembly glitches. This 2001 virtually
problem-free, compared to first problem-
prone 1999 model. Mileage great - too
bad diesel fuel often priced same as
premium gas.

Best Features

Poor man's Porsche. Great handling and power better than would expect for 45 mpg.

Worst Features

Interior rattles and plastic peeling. Burnt-out headlights can be replaced only by disassembling engine - a boon for dealers' service depts.
