2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


This car was made for me! Everything about it fits someone under 5 feet tall. I love the turbo motor, but the electrical problems have been very costly. That makes me regret this purchase. A VW rep told me they had subcontractor supply problems from 2000-2002. I could not find any info along those lines before buying the car and I certainly wish I had!

Best Features

I can reach everything I need while driving! The turbo engine gets me out of danger because it moves!

Worst Features

The body panels, being in such few pieces, mean a dent costs far more to repair than it should. The litany of electrical problems make this otherwise happy purchase a miserable mistake.
