Sick of Dung Beetle
By abroome on


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


This Beetle is the worst car I have ever owned. The cup holders, the window regulators, the air bag light, the check engine light, replaced several headlights, the convertible top, the console lock, and the transmission. These are just a few problems with the car. THe transmission will not shift and the VW dealership wants 6,000 to fix this. I will never buy another VW again. The dealerships act like nothing ever happens with these cars but everyone I talk to has these problems. Also a design flaw regarding the battery and seatbelts. Battery must be replaced by dealership. Beware!!!!! Very cute car but not reliable at all. It is a piece of crap there for a dung beetle!

Best Features

Only riding with the top down. Cute color (baby blue)

Worst Features

recall all convertible beetles, redesign the car, everything is cheap about the car
