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


I bought this car used and I think that makes a huge difference. I have (hopefully) avoided the pitfalls that the new owners did and my car is intact and in beautiful shape, inside and out. I bought some tires and got an alignment and some wipers, but everything else is going smoothly. I love the way it drives, besides how tight the clutch is. Everyone thinks it is the cutest thing ever and it is the first car I am proud to drive. I loved my 97 Golf, but I love this car even more.

Best Features

Purple and red interior lighting, sunglasses holder above the passenger side AND in the middle of the ceiling, variety of ways to move the seat and steering wheel, headroom and legroom.

Worst Features

Obviously the cupholders, though the one on the center console works just fine. The trunk space is a little smaller than I was expecting, but is workable.
