2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought it used but the previous owner only had a slight problem with the moonroof. I've put tons of miles on it and very few problems. Something got in catalytic converter, and a radiator support thing snapped when I hit a 35 degree angle at 40 and bottomed out suspension. Great reliable car! Never fails to start (if you dont run down battery), very fun to drive, doesn't burn oil, sturdy trans! Great car!
I love how big the front seat space is: tons of head and leg room. Table like dash is used as a 2nd trunk. It's cute!
Make ride a little more comfy, and body a little more rigid. VW's already improving their engines with the FSI's: diesel techiques applied to gas engines!
