Too many problems
By Christina on


2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback


My Beetle has had endless electrical problems. The chrome finish on the steering wheel began rubbing off after 18 months of ownership. The engine cover falls off once or twice a year, which I hear happens a lot to new beetles. A cute car, but ridiculous to maintain. I didn't start having problems until it was about 4 years old. When I bought it, I sure expected it to last me more than 75,000 miles.

Best Features

Really great gas mileage, fun to drive, and cute.

Worst Features

Fixing anything is so expensive. It is unreliable and falling apart, even though I take care of it. It is something new every two months. Time to buy a Toyota.
