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


This car was not what I had hoped. The headlamps needed to be changed every two months, the gas door froze, then broke, the front console where the cups holders are broke. The a/c broke at one point due to a mechanical failure...a little piece of plastic broke inside the dash, ended up costing me $500 to fix. I've paid the car off and hoped to keep it until the engine died...but I think the inside will fall to pieces before that happens.

Best Features

Not a bad ride in bad weather.

Worst Features

The interior is cheap as heck, I will never buy another Volkswagen.
