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

Review

owned my GL (auto) for 2 and a half years. It's a fun car to drive. But it constantly has some kind of troubles. First, the cable of the fuel filler has been fixed twice. Now it's broken again. The windshield wipers kept making bad noises even though I had it adjusted/filler changed every time I went to a dealership. I finally solved the problem by changing the whole blade sets with those inexpensive ones from Walmart. Ironically, dealerships could not solve it! Third, engine light was on and signal light did not work once.Last, the engine consumes oil. Worst, the dealerships wouldn't even mention it when you bought the car.

Favorite Features

Look, big headroom for front seater, interior.

Suggested Improvements

quality,more DIY instructions in the manual.
