2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


Without a doubt this is the worst VW I have owned.
Had a 71 Bug in high school and I would rather have that car back then this 2004.
We bought this car in 2006 for my wife, she loved the red/black coloring, and the convertible top.
Since buying the car we have replaced the water pump 3 times, drivers side headlight keeps going out, convertable top was vandalized (not VW's fault) the power windows dont auto close correctly. Its just one problem after another...I will never buy another VW

Best Features

During the summer when the car runs well, she loved driving with the top down

Worst Features

Overall just poor quality...
