2002 Volkswagen New Beetle Sport 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I really wish that I could write a
positive review after a year of
ownership, but I can't. Although
people still approach it like a
celebrity, the car has been extremely
unreliable--and I only put 7500 miles
on in 12 months so far. The dealership
has been cooperative in trying to find
the problem, but they cannot. It is
not having simple window problems
either, rather the engine is barely
running or cutting out during
acceleration. I have never had a car
spend sop much time in the shop. Not
even a ten-year-old Civic with 150,000
miles. To those of you still in love--
good luck!!!
