2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is the only car I have EVER wanted and after having it for a year, I will never own one again. I have had it in for repairs at least 20 times-- everything from a basic turn signal not working to the entire electronic system completing going. The driver's side window also malfunctioned---and when it was 30 degrees outside! Can you believe that for a car that's a year old? No thanks. Volkswagen can keep it.

Suggested Improvements

the visors block no sunlight whatsoever. The windows are curved up so high that when you go to swing the visor around, it doesn't reach 1/4 of the window! I constantly drive with my arm propped up on the ledge of the window so that my hand can block the light from my eyes.
