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


Interior needs much improvement. Can't set taller cups in cup holders and cup stabilizers keep getting lost and drinks spill over. I purchased it as 3rd owner. Would love to have a diesel with convertible top but the diesel smell needs to be controlled somehow. Michelin tires look good on it. Love the shiny finish.

Best Features

I love to drive it. It is roomy. Love the moonroof, leather seats and power equipment (windows, mirrors (heated)). The diesel gets such great fuel mileage.

Worst Features

Dash and entire door panels need to be better material, peels off, scratches and looks bad with just normal wear and tear. The gas door and trunk release is constantly in need of fix. The VW hubcaps keep falling off so need a better way to attaching them. I have endured much pain with so MANY REPAIRS
