2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


This vehicle has given me unbeliable
electrical problems. The the whole
instrument cluster is unoperational, as
well as the console light is out. Our
transmission slips when trying to
downshift. This is a vehicle with only
50,000 miles it should not be this bad
at this point, but it is. Our warranty
is up and now is up to us to reapair
the unreliability of such a neglecting
company. Consumer beware

Best Features

When first acquired this car hauled A** and handle like the best of them. For an automatic.

Worst Features

They need to look further in to their electrical system and transmission that doesnt seem to be able to handle the extra power from the turbo.
