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

Review

Bought this car brand new. It was okay at first, but the thing started falling apart after a few years. Numerous electrical problems, gauge cluster failure, constant problems with rear brakes seizing. Paint failed in places, and running boards underneath doors get dented easily. Stuff was coming loose and dangling underneath car. Due to its design, this car is very difficult to work on, and some parts are poorly designed due to the car's shape. We unloaded it before it hit 50k miles.

Best Features

Unique styling, fun to drive, comfortable, roomy interior.

Worst Features

Get Honda to design the mechanical, and you'd have a great car.
