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


2002 Beetle GLS 2.0 Bought in July 08 trying to sell in July 09. My son paid $7,900.00 he put 10M miles (96M miles) on it and is trying to sell it for $4995.00. Had to fix driver side power window. Cat went bad VW has 10yr extended warr. Replace brake cables. New tires. 6 disc change went out replaced it. Replace seat buckle to get the air bag light off. Orig key and remote didn't come with car son bought one $200.00. Quick lube shop stripped drain plug. They paid $400.00 to replace oil pan. Now they mechanic says it should have timing belt and water pump replaced. What a money pit. I own 2 toyotas and you change oil and tires when needed and they just keep running. Wouldn't buy VW or Audi

Best Features

Fun to drive easy to park.

Worst Features

Upgrade all the components and make the car easier to work on. Most mechanics would rather not work on VWs and Audi
