2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Bought this cute bug 6 years ago for my daughter. Has been in the shop more times than I can count. I've always had it serviced right on time either at a dealer or by a VW specialist and still have tons of problems. Main ones: - SUNROOF LEAKS - ruined interior! Have taken it to a VW dealer 4 times and an independent specialist once. Still leaks. Really bad design! - POWER WINDOW MOTOR - Replaced - Misc Buttons - pop off. Design is also really a 2-seater as the rear seats are virtually useless for anyone over 5 feet tall. My daughter wanted this based on looks alone. At least this has been a great lesson for her. NEXT TIME SHE'LL BUY QUALITY IN ADDITION TO LOOKS. AVOID THE BUG!

Best Features

Looks. Very cute. Drives well for a small car. But very frustrating to own which outweighs those features.

Worst Features

Redesign the sunroof to eliminate leaks as it is a real problem.
