2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


I bought my Beetle new and I've loved
driving it from day one, but I have to say the
first 10,000 miles were mostly spent at the
dealership. Granted, most was covered by
warranty, but what a hassle!

Best Features

So much fun to drive! Handling is great. Seats remain comforatble for long drives. Incredible carrying room with the seats folded down.

Worst Features

INTERIOR QUALITY!! 50,000 miles- window parts replaced 5 times, center console opener broke at 5,000 mls, rubber coating on door handles peeling at 12,000 mls, rear speakers died after 10,000 mls, cupholders are too far forward/useless. Repairs are EXPENSIVE.
