Good mileage...defective interior parts.
By Thebtls on


2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Interior is covered in a plastic like
material that peals off. If if wasn't
for the 43 MPG I would turn it loose.
The mileage is the only redeaming
feature. Arm Rest latch has broken 3
times, cost $58 to fix at dealer
cost...so that remains unfixed.
Factory car mats are garbage. Cup
holders can not be used at all. If you
do use the one in the console, it
cracks...all four are cracked now. If
you spill coke or coffee, it eats away
the finish on the cups...

Best Features

Fuel Economy...although every single owner of a diesel that I have ever met tell me they get better than the 42 mpg I get.

Worst Features

Recall the interior parts that are defective and replace them...
