2002 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
Review
Purchased new. Average mileage has been 40, mix of highway & city driving. Have had problems with headlights burning out. Had to replace the horns. Have had to replace several brake light switches. Trans. won't shift if defective. So far engine & trans OK. Low fuel light is on all the time. $600.00 to repair. I'll live with it. Overall, I love the car. Good mileage, easy on tires and easy to do my own oil changes. We'll see how long the engine/trans last. Diesel should go 250,000 miles easily. I'm using Stanadine Fuel Additive.
Favorite Features
Fuel mileage. Seats are comfortable. Feels heavier than many Japanese cars the same size. A/C is great.
Suggested Improvements
Sun visors are too short to do any good on the side windows. Cup holders are located under the heater/ac controls. Not enought height.
