Love it, but had a big problem
By NeilS on
Vehicle2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
ReviewAmazing engineering and design for
such a small car, lots of fun to
drive. Turbo has a lot of power, but
lags when starting from dead stop. I
had a BMW 325is, and this car drives a
lot like it. For the $, I don't think
you can beat it, especially if you're
looking for a four seater
But.... I had a defective slave
cylinder that caused the clutch to
burn up after 3300 miles, and the car
broke down on the NJ Turnpike.
Warranty covered it, it's all fixed
and working great, but I have to
question reliability when I break down
Best FeaturesMonsoon stereo is great, 6 disc changer in center console is neat too. Stick shift performs well (until my clutch problem), top comes down easily. Rain sensing wipers are really cool, except for one complaint (see below).
Worst FeaturesButton that controls all four windows at once (very useful) gets confused sometimes if all windows don't start in same position. Rain-sensing wipers are great, but sometimes don't sense the rain until you turn them off and back on.
