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

Review

Interior is covered in a plastic like material that peals off. If if wasn't for the 43 MPG I would turn it loose. The mileage is the only redeaming feature. Arm Rest latch has broken 3 times, cost $58 to fix at dealer cost...so that remains unfixed. Factory car mats are garbage. Cup holders can not be used at all. If you do use the one in the console, it cracks...all four are cracked now. If you spill coke or coffee, it eats away the finish on the cups...

Favorite Features

Fuel Economy...although every single owner of a diesel that I have ever met tell me they get better than the 42 mpg I get.

Suggested Improvements

Recall the interior parts that are defective and replace them...
