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


I am a travel therapist and use my car to commute. It is pretty good on gas and I love the moon roof. It also came with a sporty racing stripe design on the doors... cute! Even though 'she' is 7 years old, I still receive compliments on her. My husband likes the gas mileage but says that he feels like the guy on the Simpsons when he drives it (he's 6'2). It's also a great car for wives who have problems keeping their husbands from driving their cars. :0)

Best Features

My favorite features are the gas mileage, the gas mileage and the moonroof.

Worst Features

Those darn door panels are awful! The leather is peeling and so is the handle itself. The interior needs a serious upgrade and the ability to fit a booster seat in the backseat without needing a trip to the chiropractor.
