The Worst VW I've EVER Owned!!!
By lisa_tim on


2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDi 2dr Hatchback


This car has been a nightmare. First the
sunroof made a buzzing noise, then the
cable on the gas door broke. A wheel
bearing went bad at 12,000 miles and
another wheel bearing went bad at less
than 18,000 miles. The rear brakes were
completely gone around 18,000 miles, I
had to replace both the pads and
rotors.(The rear brakes definitely
should not have been bad, the front
brakes were like brand new). Obviously
VW put cheap brakes and wheel bearings
on this car. Don't buy this car or you
will probably regret it as much as I do.
The dealership was absolutely horrible
to deal with. I've had less trouble with
my used cars than I do with this one
bought new.

Best Features

The design of the car, the mileage you get with a diesel, the car handles great.

Worst Features

Don't put such cheap parts on the car, Cup holders, and definitely quality. More than a 2 year 24,000 mile warranty. Warranty definitley too short.
