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


I saw all of the problems others were having and felt compelled to speak up. My experience with this car has been fantastic, a few small problems, but nothing to put the car out of service for more than a day and nothing requiring a tow. The car is fun to drive, has way more leg and head room than any other in its class, and is good on the pocket book. All these people that have problems have failed to mention the standard 4 year 50000 mile bumper to bumper warranty. The car is well designed and the company stands behind their product, not sure what else you could ask for.

Best Features

Great style, ample room for tall folks, fun to drive, makes other people happy as they smile at your car.

Worst Features

The windows are too sensitive and sometime want to roll themselves down when you are trying to put them up, drop the tape player and give me an in dash cassette. Who listens to tapes these days?
