Vehicle
2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Int. door lining peeling off, sunroof side strips both broke off no apparent reason, self air filter change extremely difficult, passenger side head light out before 30K miles, dealer stated 2-3 sets brake pads replaced on rear before replacing front ones, replacement remote key overly expensive, underside of front driver side head rest separated (why?), disconnect battery & to many things to reprogram, expensive windshield replacement, fog lens cracked & entire light unit replacement vs lens only, gas mileage should be higher for such a small car, & front arm rest latch broke early on & 24K warranty was a joke.
Favorite Features
Cute, 2-way sunroof, radio w/CD changer, lots of room compared to 70's models, heated seats & side mirrors, full size spare tire, comfortable w/ 2.0 having power when needed.
Suggested Improvements
Better coating on interior door panels, front cup holders useless, put compartment on floor vs pull down front arm rest, better gas mileage, distribute brake pressure evenly front to back, longer warranty period, steel oil pan vs aluminum to prevent striping during oil changes.
