Cute, but....

2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


I have had my new Beetle for almost
three years now. As cute as it is (and
it is!), I have had many minor
frustrations for such a new/low mileage
car. Such as: gas cap release lever
broke, passenger side window broke (in
down position, of course), window
switch came right off in my hand. As
someone who only owned Japanese cars,
my first and only VW has been very
disappointing. I would not buy another
VW made in Mexico.

Best Features

This car is fun...easy to park, fun to drive, great stereo system.

Worst Features

Improve cup holders, visors (the current visors are for show only and do not block the sun...they are useless), improve gas mileage. Implement quality checks. Recall these cars and replace faulty window switches. Build QUALITY.
