I hate my car. It makes me sad.

2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This car is cute, but man does it stink. Little things keep breaking. Sure, they're under warranty, but it's a pain to have to bring the thing back to the dealership. I've had to repair the following things: Seat back/fwd levers - these constantly break, both trunk arms, the lock on the center console, the front panel accessory slots (empty), rear phone charger - it fell right out, the back window is starting to have problems rolling down correctly, the front airbag sensor, various electrical problems - including one that made the car turn off while driving. Fun. Also, there's a wheel noise that I need to get checked now. I feel like I drive a 1987 Taurus or something, except with a payment.

Best Features

It's cute. It's fun to drive a convertible in the summer, especially by the beach. The color - galactic blue - is superpretty.

Worst Features

I wish it had better overall quality. I wish it were faster. I wish the cupholders and the things to push the seat forward were not stupid. Man are they stupid.
