Run don't walk from this car!
By Angry VW owner on
Vehicle
2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I purchased this car from a friend who had won it. So, I was considered a 2nd owner, so I got cheated out of a 50K mile warranty by VW, even though my friend never insured or drove the car. Beyond that the car is plain and simple--JUNK! The catalytic converter needed to be replaced at about 52K miles, VW wouldn't warranty it. They finally did up to 100k by that time I had over 100K. The check engine light has been on forever, and the transmission is sketchy. The interior is a mess. Cup holders broken, seat fabric is torn, rear view mirror is a joke, not to mention the interior light. Trunk release broken and the fuel release door broken. Don't buy this car unless your are a masochist
Favorite Features
Headroom only, Sunroof is noisy.
Suggested Improvements
Better quality everything. The car is an absolute mess from beginning to end.
