Where to Start?
By Michele on


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


Wow! For such a cute car it has been terrible when it comes to repairs. Cat. Converter, alternator, Intake valve, check engine lights, oil pan, rear brakes, rear taillight, headlamp replacements, front spoiler, trunk latch, key replacement, cup holders, window regulator, peeling door, seats stain, interior panel lights, airbag light, small sun visor, loud engine on the highway, not as good on gas as you would think. I'm sure there's more. It seems nit picky, but really the issues are extensive. I had a 1995 Jetta and it was awesome!!! But this beetle is impossible. We want to sell it, but feel guilty passing it on to someone else! Maybe VW will buy it back, lol.

Best Features

Roomy head space, comfortable seats for travel, dash panel, interior chargers

Worst Features

Well, I think I've exhausted this one. Hands down the interior looks crappy!
