2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


I bought the beetle 'cause it was my
childhood dream to own one. The car
drives awesome, the way it handles
curves and braking etc., you never feel
you are out of control. But sadly, I
sold mine today not for comfort reasons
but for reliability. The quality control
is poor, the window trimming gives way,
and the window switches are flaky, and
after it crossed 50K miles, this year I
had to go the dealer multiple times to
get my engine check light fixed. When I
talk to the service agents about the
quality issues, they shrug their
shoulders and say it is normal wear and
tear. I own a camry with 80K miles and
never had any problems. Reliability is
one reason I would never buy VW or
recommend it

Best Features

Handling, brakes and stereo system, simply awesome!!!

Worst Features

reliabilty and quality. VW needs to get its act togather if they think they want to be a long term viable company
