2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


I've had so many problems …1. Rear
hatch doesn't close (had it in 6 x &
replaced twice- still not right), 2.
Gas flap servo broken & replaced, 3.
instrument cluster replaced, 4.
vehicle towed 2x due to 2 faulty
switches (separate incidents), 5. air
conditioner blower/compressor vibrated
so loud that the dash shook (blower
was replaced 6 mo. ago; just started
roaring again), 6. Inside door cover
plastic is peeling, 7. New brake pads
installed- the rears badly worn at 48k
miles, but the fronts like new--??, 8.
engine light comes on frequently, 9.
front air bag needed to be replaced
(after 2 yr warranty ended) though the
air bag had never been inflated, …

Best Features

Blue lights on display, after market spoiler, roominess inside, turbo, quickness and tight turning ratio.

Worst Features

Improve work quality--this is disappointing!
