zippy, but little things go wrong

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


This car is fun to drive, lots of
acceleration, great gas mileage and
looks good. the finish details are
plastic and aren't holding up well. I
accidentally drove over a short
parking curb and did $1.7K in
damage -- the steering and cooling
systems are behind the front
bumper, so if you get in a minor
fender bender, these things all get
damaged. The service at Santa
Monica dealership is TERRIBLE!!!

Best Features

quick, zippy, looks good, lot of car for the money.

Worst Features

cupholders, plastic covers and trim that break easily, sunroof shade is poor quality, dealer service SUXXXXX.
