2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I bought a 2001 Turbo New Beetle in October 2000 as soon as 2001 model came out and paid top dollar as there were no discounts. I have had the car almost 5 years and it has been the best new VW I have had - only 2 very minor problems with the electric locks & a dash light. Both problems were fixed right away without agrument. I have moved a few times so I have gone to 6 different dealers with a minimum of problems. The car is great, fun to drive, great looking and still gets a lot of stares. I would agree that the cup holders aren't good for tall drinks but I do not use them much. The car is great in the snow as I ski and take it to Canada, the only improvement - All Wheel Drive!

Best Features

Turbo Engine, Heated leather Seats, Pop Up Spoiler, Sound System, Does 105 MPH (at least)in style - looks great and it's fun to blow away bigger, more expensive cars or SUVs!

Worst Features

All Wheel Drive, In Dash CD Player that holds 6 CDs (I have the optional 6 cd player in the hatch).
