2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


I've had my Bug for a year and half and had only heartache. I thought a Bug would be a good choice as my aunt had her '78 Bug for 17 yrs and was in still great running condition when she sold it. I was disappointed to find that this high reliability no longer exists in the new Bugs. To begin with the sensors had to be replaced, and the seatbelt covers. Then the oil pan sprung a leek, the axle bent, the cd player broke. Now my driver's seat no longer stays locked as it should. The sunroof visor is now off track and to top it off my air filter is now over heating the car and causing it to die and need a jump start. I can't run the air at all. I've thrown over $4000 into the trash for this lemon car!

Best Features

The sunroof and big windows. The cute design and colors. Very fun to drive!

Worst Features

Just about everything including the gas mileage, my Bug only get 19 mpg!
