2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Less than a year after my powertrain warranty expired, my OBD II inspection failed. Apparently my second intake air flow is screwed up (dealer said it'll cost ~$500 to fix). To top it all off three days later, my blinkers went out. It's not the fuses, I can tell you that much. I am not going to get my money back on this car. I'm only driving it until I can afford another car - which will be a few years. VWs stink.

Best Features

I still like my color (green), but it's really fading.

Worst Features

Don't try to redesign any more cars and don't make them so cheap.
