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


My 2001 New Beetle has proven to be reliable, stylish, and economical. I get a steady 26 mpg in my dail commute. It cruises easily above legal limits showing it was designed to run German autobahns. Great seats - no bun or back aches after a day of driving. Excellent German engineering at a rock bottom price.

Best Features

Excellent handling, interior design and quality of materials, front seats for leg and head room - lots of standard features for the money and its unique looks.

Worst Features

Basic 2.0 liter engine needs about 20 more horses. Power window design has had the Bug into the shop twice for warranty work; inside door handle cover peals.
