2002 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Do not buy this car unless you love
going to the repair shop. My BUG
was “Artificially Sweet”. With-in the
last five months my old car has been in
the shop three times for the same
reason– will not start, always some
starter problem. VW has decided to
build the complete car in Mexico where
QA is not the most important thing, but
cost is. VW cars are a good example of
poor QA. The car has been in the shop
about 7 to 8 times for some “BUG”
problem with-in the last two years. I
just hate coming out of a restaurant,
get into my new car and have the car
not start. No more little kids seeing
my car and playing the “punch game”.
