2002 Volkswagen New Beetle Hatchback Turbo S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Absolutely fun to drive. Has been therapy for a hard working professional that enjoys performance in a vehicle and some fuel economy to boot.


Favorite Features

Retro design on interior and the Monsoon sound systems rocks! Leather interior with rally design is a nice touch too.


Suggested Improvements

Very limited backseat headroom and leg room but not really sure that this could be changed without modifying the overall sporty appearance.

2002 Volkswagen New Beetle Hatchback GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is relaible and fun to drive. i bought this car in 2000, drove it brand new off the lot...within a week had it back to the dealership...a month later had it back to the dealship...2 months later had it back to the dealership....4 months later.....you get the picture. I am bummed because I have had the car for 2.5 years now and for the past 6 months I have wanted to get rid of it and get a new car...but I am stuck in a 4 year lease so must drive it for another 1.5 years.


Favorite Features

Looks and drives great


Suggested Improvements

shoddy plastic interior that falls apart within 2 years. Rear hatch never works. Goes through oil like a '72 Beetle. lots of little things that are always breaking.
