2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


I purchased a 1998 Beetle only to have
BIG problems with it. By 50,000 miles
I had replace 4 headlights, 6 driving
lights a brake handle, 5 window
switches, 5 inside door handles, 3
radios and a set of brakes and rotors.
Then the trouble really started. Two
radiator fans, engine fuse box, air
conditioner conpresser, computer and
more. So, I figured it was just the
first year of production, surely they
worked out the bugs! NOPE! I got a
2000 Beetle and still had the minor
problems plus a new clutch at 30,000
