2000 Volkswagen beetle hit or miss.

I actually live my car. I bought it used already 18 years old. I basically did a tune up. Fuel relay, fuel pump, spark plugs, spark plugs and wires, although, oddly, just today it broke down. It is looking as though it is a possible crankshaft or camshaft sensor. The problem is the way it breaks down could be dangerous. It acts as if it is not getting fuel and cut out on the highway. Hopefully it is what I think. My mother had a 2004 Volkswagen beetle and I did a lot of research on beetles. Hers was a complete lemon. And the makers if Volkswagen were caught in the biggest car scandal in history. Do your research. So far my car has been great but too much plastic not enough metal.

The joys (and hazards) of driving the Beatle.

Love my bug with a few exceptions that is. It is a lot roomier than the bugs of the past and a lot more comfortable in comparison however it has no room for your purse nor anything else other than seating. The room available in rear is not much and the drink holders in the front are basically unusable as they cannot hold any size other than a 12oz can and the rear has only one which cannot hold a large/extra large drink as it will tip and spill everywhere. The car has a lot of get up and go for a smaller engine but unfortunately it has an extreme amount of large blind spots making it not so enjoyable to drive.

It is a gas saver and you can get about 32 miles on highway and about 23 in town.

This car has great gas mileages. It's a good car for people who need somethings smaller to drive or just starting out driving. It has good airflow in it. Seats open up nice and wide for back seat passengers to get in and out. It has heated seats. You can move the seat up and down if your a shorter person and need some height to be able to see out the windshield better you can make the seat go higher up or you can lower the seat. For the side of this car it has a pretty big truck.
