surprising beetle...
By kathryn on


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


I also always wanted a beetle, and when
they returned a few years ago, I
couldn't wait to own one! It's
adorable, and the test drive was
amazing- how it hugged the road. I love
the sound of the engine. I bought a
black one, and all was well until...a
front headlight burned out after owning
it for only 3 months?? Next? A light
came on indicating that I could not
drive without damaging the
engine...most recently? The car died-
fine one minute, dead the next. It
needed a new battery after 18 months??
Oh- and the other headlight burned out.
I do still love the beetle. Would I buy
another one? No. It's unpredictible.

Best Features

Both the interior and exterior are fantastic. I smile when I see a Beetle on the road!!

Worst Features

Those cup holders are awful!
