Love/Hate 2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS

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


I ignored all of those typical issues with wiring, bulbs out, handles coming off seat, chronic top opening problem because I loved the fit and finish and the drive, but then last summer my transmission started to go. A new transmission on a car with 75,000 miles on it is 6,000 plus installation? You have got to be kidding me! So I continue to drive it jerking all around until I think up what to do next. This was supposed to be handed down to my 13 year old.

Best Features

Seats are so comfortable for my 6'7" hubby! Love getting a tan while I ride.

Worst Features

Fix the transmission!
