2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Unfortunately, I have had to bring my
car in 5 times for repairs. 4 times
because the automatic convertible roof
wouldn't go up and 1 time because the
motor in the back electric window
broke. I love the look, feel and drive
of this car and I am completely
disgusted and greatly disappointed with
the convertible top not working
properly. According to the dealership,
I am not using due diligence when
opening the trunk when the top is down.
They are indicating that the top is
getting stuck in the trunk which is
causing it not to go up and that it is
my responsibility to make sure this
doesn't happen. This sounds like a
design flaw to me!

Best Features

Look, drive and feel!

Worst Features

Redesign of the roof and the trunk. And have a car return policy.
