Vehicle2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewInt. door lining peeling off,
sunroof side strips both broke off no
apparent reason, self air
filter change extremely difficult,
passenger side head light out
before 30K miles, dealer stated 2-3
sets brake pads replaced on rear
before replacing front ones,
replacement remote key overly
expensive, underside of front driver
side head rest separated (why?),
disconnect battery & to many things to
reprogram, expensive windshield
replacement, fog lens cracked & entire
light unit replacement vs lens only,
gas mileage should be higher for
such a small car, & front arm rest
latch broke early on & 24K warranty
was a joke.
Best FeaturesCute, 2-way sunroof, radio w/CD changer, lots of room compared to 70's models, heated seats & side mirrors, full size spare tire, comfortable w/ 2.0 having power when needed.
Worst FeaturesBetter coating on interior door panels, front cup holders useless, put compartment on floor vs pull down front arm rest, better gas mileage, distribute brake pressure evenly front to back, longer warranty period, steel oil pan vs aluminum to prevent striping during oil changes.
