2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


Took it in the next day after purchase to service the driver window because it didn't want to go up.The interior melts in the sun.Switches in the car fall off,like window switches. Cupholders detach therefore, i have a big orange juice stain on the passenger floor.Replaced both headlights at least once every year, very expensive, due to labor.VW made it difficult for customers to do themselves.Head of car hit pavement going over bumps.Forgot how many times I took it to get something fixed or replaced.AC filter needed to be cleaned within the 1st year and VW charged me for that. Hubcaps fell off in the 1st year of ownership.I hate this car.Even my Sentra from the 80's treated me better.

Best Features

Looks cute, the lights that light up the speedometer,easy to make u turns, can fit into small parking spaces, and smells like crayons.

Worst Features

The whole interior design except for where the speedometer is.Make it easier for other repair shops besides the dealer to work on it.Everything but the look of the car needs to be changed.
