2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
HORRIBLE CAR!!! Poor ride and handling
(shakes violently above 50mph),
annoying click-click-click sound when
stopped, embarrassing pick-up speed,
horendous gas mileage. Main reason to
not buy this car is Volkswagon Credit.
Sent in payment every month, every
month they would cash my payment check
and then call me to tell me I never
paid. I would have to pay my bank to
send me a copy of the check to fax to
VW Credit to prove it to them. You
say "simple mistake by VW, probobaly
only happened once or twice" - try
eight times and others have told me of
similar experiences. DO NOT BUY THIS
CAR - poorly designed by poor people.
I am debating whether or not to get
personalized tags on my new car (not
VW) that say DNTBYVW
I plead with you, DO NOT BUY THIS CAR,
you will be disappointed with
everything about it. Resale value is
disgusting. It is like throwing money
away every month.
