So sad about my bug

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


I should have done a little more
research about this car before I bought
one... I fell in love with this car the
moment I saw/drove it. It was
beautiful, roomy, and a very
comfortable drive. I loved the seat
warmers too! But I've had nothing but
problems since I bought it. The window
control broke off, the gas door doesn't
open all the time, the hatch doesn't
open al the time, the turbo was having
problems, etc. I'm so glad I bought the
extended warranty. The gas mileage is
also very bad, 14-18 mph and it needs
premium gas. I might as well own an
SUV. I finally got rid of it last week.

Best Features

Dash lights, roominess, seat heaters

Worst Features

Reliability, better gas mileage.
