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


Very very expensive for a car of this low quality. Got rid of it after 25k miles, the single worst quality car I have ever owned.

Transmission problems, AC problems, electrical problems, cup holder broke and spilled a slurpee on the floor.

First of all it seems that every part of this car is built with the bare minimum of material. And to make it worse seems to have been assembled by kindergarten dropouts.

By the way the old ones were not much better but at least they were cheaper. You are better off with a korean car or american car.

Best Features

cute to look at (now I am repulsed by the thought of it)

Worst Features

serious build quality improvement serious material improvement
