Cutest piece of junk on the road!


2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


This car has been in the shop 4 times for window motor replacement, countless times for various electrical and sensor problems, the convertible top motor broke,bad headlights, impossible to clean seats, etc. I've had every problem that everyone else has had. This is the least reliable, most poorly designed car with the worst customer service I've ever had; it's also incredibly cute and very fun to drive! I would never spend another penny on a volkswagen, especially if it was my only car. We have other cars so it wasn't a problem that has been in the shop almost 20 times.

Best Features

Unbelievably cute, fun to drive with the turbo's power boost, a very happy car!

Worst Features

Everything. Redesign the electrical system, man up and pay when your crappy parts break over and over again once the car is out of warranty, and don't charge your customers a $105 fee to diagnose a problem with a sensor when you know the problem is that your sensors are faulty.
