2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


My only problem with the car was when
it was two days old. I had an
electrical problem where the windshield
wipers would go on, the emergency
flashers would activate, and myriad
other electrical impossibilities. It
took 3 weeks to get it back to me...
problem; a bad ground in the
headlight. Since the day I got it
back, it has been problem free. I
really enjoy the spirit the turbo GLX
displays and only now, after two years,
have come to drive it a little more
sensibly. My two biggest complaints
are the useless cup holders and the
reception on the radio, which is really
bad on the AM side.

Best Features

Acceleration is wonderful... front seat leg room and head room are about as good as my Mereceds 420... I still love the appearance of the car and have never ceased to be amused by everyone waiving at red lights.

Worst Features

Reduce wind noise when driving at highway speeds... design useful cup holders (may have already been done by now) Redesign the switches for the windows... you have to be a contortionist to operate the switches now.
