2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I was thrilled when the New Beetle came out. I finally purchased a loaded used, 2001. I love driving it! The fuel economy is good, comfort is great, styling is nearly perfect, and the stereo is fabulous. Some small complaints that I have are the poor design of the cup holders and the peeling door handles. I have not had any mechanical issues, except the ongoing mystery of the temperature and oil gauges coming on randomly. They chalk it up to a "VW quirk" (this is my 4th VW and all have had some kind of quirk).

Favorite Features

That Beetle style! Moonroof, stereo, and overall driving fun.

Suggested Improvements

Yes, please fix the peeling door handles and place the cup holders somewhere practical.
