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

Review

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 highway!!!

Best Features

Exterior design. Great power for its size, handles well.

Worst Features

Extend the basic warranty. Improve the product. Electrical system, lights, alternator or take it off the market!
