2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


I've had this car in the shop three
times for rattling in the interior.
The hatch has been removed twice to
fix it. When the car was built a
screw was left in the dashboard which
started to scratch against metal.
After they removed the dash to fix it,
they failed to hook up all the vents
properly. There is still rattling in
the doors, but I have given up that
they will fix it. This will be my 1st
and only VW. Where it that quality
German engineering VW boasts about?
Not in this car. Buyer beware!

Best Features

The best thing about this car is the A/C, it worked real good on a trip to Phoenix, AZ in the summer with 122F heat.

Worst Features

Better quality standards in the assembly of the vehicle.
