2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Headlights burn out very quickly. Brakes
replaced at 30K. Alternator replaced at
24500-of course out of warranty. Less
than 500 miles later the battery died.
At 37K the alternator needs to be
replaced again. Door to gas tank is now
manual. While driving car will jerk,
electrical system dies at any speed then
resumes. This is very traumatic on the
Exterior design. Great power for its
size, handles well.
Extend the basic warranty. Improve the
product. Electrical system, lights,
alternator or take it off the market!
