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

Review

I have had nothing but problems with my car since I have had it. Since 05 I have had to have the transmission replaced and some kind of sensor replace because it wouldn't come out of park. (that was the only two things that was under warranty) then the timing belt broke which bent the valves in the head so I had to replace them the turbo went out water pump sensor the timing belt again oh and the sun roof leaked when i first got it. And I have had to replace the headlights several times. And my current problems are the brake lights, blinkers and it doesn't want to come out of park again and an oxygen sensor needs to be replaced. And by the way, it is hard to find anyone to work on them.

Best Features

I like my yellow rims and my seat warmers and my yellow and black interior that is about all I like about the lemon.

Worst Features

Many many improvements need to be made. I thought maybe I just got a bad one but everyone I talk to says they have problems with theirs.
