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

Review

I also always wanted a beetle, and when they returned a few years ago, I couldn't wait to own one! It's adorable, and the test drive was amazing- how it hugged the road. I love the sound of the engine. I bought a black one, and all was well until...a front headlight burned out after owning it for only 3 months?? Next? A light came on indicating that I could not drive without damaging the engine...most recently? The car died- fine one minute, dead the next. It needed a new battery after 18 months?? Oh- and the other headlight burned out. I do still love the beetle. Would I buy another one? No. It's unpredictible.

Favorite Features

Both the interior and exterior are fantastic. I smile when I see a Beetle on the road!!

Suggested Improvements

Those cup holders are awful!
