2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
A joy to scoot about in and to park. It has had one thing after another break off in the car. It seems that they did not have the correct recipe for plastic. To replace costs $40.00 for each broken item. The trunk brake light has been replaced twice at $129.00 and this one has cracked apart. I am the only one driving the car. The cloth front seats are grossly stained, the explanation being that they got wet once.
This is a fun and a safe car to drive when it is not lighting up one of the warning lights.
Start looking at the poor quality and start improving. I will never get another VW product. I had one in 1971 and the integrity of the entire car was solid.
