2001 Volkswagen Beetle LX 2.0 from North America
Get a Mini instead
Oil leak at 350 miles.
Engine blew and was replaced at 13,000 miles.
Gas cap lid opener froze inoperable in winter.
Misc. parts fall off car on regular basis.
Wheel bearings failed at 20,000.
High oil consumption.
Leaks oil like a sieve.
Interior plastic delaminating.
Electric window switches fell out at 30,000 miles.
We were really looking forward to this car. I've owned five VWs prior to this one and loved them all. What a dissapointment! It is a serious piece of crap. Bad build quality-period.
Too bad because it handles and performs reasonably well. When it works we like it, but we can't count on it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
