Too bad!
By savage1 on


2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback


Major repair problems. Tried 2 different VW dealers and an independent mechanic - no one can fix it right. Had head gasket replaced ($1200), water pump, and themostat (twice) - still overheating! No temp gauge - only a red light when it's already too hot. Front license plate holder fell off. Everything about this car is expensive, so make sure you get an extended warranty! Dealer service is terrible - will keep car for a week for any repairs. Oil change took 3 hours.

Best Features

Looks cute, fun to drive, nice looking dash.

Worst Features

Reliability must be improved. Dealers need to learn how to fix it in a timely manner. And make cup holders bigger!
