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


I have had too many problems with my VW Bug to name. The EPC light is always going on and off. It doesn't start in the morning, unless if you take 10 minutes to jiggle the key back and forth in the ignition. The passenger side window has never functioned properly. I have had the car towed into my dealer several times, and they don't do anything but tell me that there's nothing wrong, or why don't you pay $200 for new spark plugs, we're sure that this will take care of the problem, then the problem comes back. Bottom line they are bad cars and VW does not take care of their custumers. I will never own another VW.

Best Features

The flower holder - it is the only thing that did not break.

Worst Features

Correct the faulty electrical system. Make windows so that they actually roll up on the first try, not the 20th. Develop better customer care, if a customer has a problem fix it, get to the bottom of and guarantee your work, not just when your warranty runs out were done, if there's a problem fix it.
