Vehicle

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.

Favorite Features

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

Suggested Improvements

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