10 Years & Still Goin'!

2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


My husband bought me a 2000 "Bug" in 2005 for Mother's Day, had 32,000 miles. The turbo power is awesome, it hugs/grips the road like you wouldn't believe, the 6 disc cd/speakers will blow you outta there, let the back seat down & you'd be surprised what you can haul around, great mileage. After 5 years: new gear shift, timing belt, tires, inside roof. Mileage today: 69,888. The door panels have come loose & finding replacements is almost impossible. The engine light just came on yesterday, not looking forward to whatever this may cost. Husband says to trade it in. I don't wanna. The bottom line is: it's a great running lil car. Gonna hold on to it as long as I can afford it.
