2000 Volkswagen beetle hit or miss.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

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.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

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.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

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.

It is hard to find parts for it.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I dislike the outdated stereo system that can only play CD's. I like its compactness, size, and unique look/shape. I dislike it is engineering because mechanics that understand it are hard to come by and only the VW dealership will even look at it when problems like the eps light turn on. I really hate that light because it slows down the car and its dangerous when it randomly comes on while driving in the middle of the roadway.

- Gabriela M

It's the best car that I have ever driven even though it is 18 years old.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

The biggest issue that I have with my car is electrical problems. The windows will sometimes get halfway up and than the buttons will not work right. Ill press up and they will go back down instead. The light does not always turn on when I open my door even though it is set to. My right headlight is dull no matter how new the bulb is. Other than that my car runs perfectly. It has never broken down or had any major issues.

Volkswagen beetle- my favorite car! A great little car for first time drivers.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

My bug engine tends to sputter very loudly, sounds like a go kart, good gas mileage however the engine is very loud and tends to rev in a concerning way. Very fast, stops and turns quickly, and is very cute! May be old but still runs well, my check engine light is always on but there is not a problem, that I have found, seems to be a recurring problem with Volkswagen unfortunately, however I would highly recommend.

2000 VW beetle problems starting to arise after nineteen years.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

My beetle requires me to occasionally fill the radiator water as I believe the is a small hole in one of the homes. I recently have become concerned about the transmission because after doing highway driving and back on surface streets it often misses or will not seem to get gas. Also I have had to replace the battery twice and last week needed a jump again after the car seat for only a week.

- Cynthia B

It has amazing sight lines, and is like driving in a bubble!

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I really enjoy driving my bug, because it is basically half windows. The sight lines are amazing, and you essentially do not have a blind spot. I drive a 2000, and it is been very reliable thus far! I recently replaced the a few parts, but they were the original parts that came with the car 19 years ago! All in all, I would definitely buy another bug!

- Jennifer H

You will have so much fun in this tiny car!

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

Love this car. Diesel engine gets great gas mileage. Much more roomy inside then one would think. Drives like a dream, turbo engine has lots of zippy zoom. Downside. Maintenance. Expensive to maintain. Needs regular maintenance. Uses synthetic oil. Timing belt is changed every 60,000 miles. That includes changing the water pump. $4-500.

- Lila C

2000 Volkswagen beetle - super cute!

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

For positives, I really love how compact this car is and how well it does for me. It is a great way for my friends and I to get around and I always get compliments on it! For negatives, it looks nice on the outside but the inside coverings come off of the wall easily, most likely because it is so old. It is still a great car, though.

- Carlie C

Volkswagen beetle manual diesel.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

It is a really good running vehicle. Reliable has a lot of room. Does need the ac and heat fixed. All in all it is amazing. Great on gas. Its a diesel so it takes longer to burn gas. Easy maintenance. Smooth ride. Easy to shift. Six disc CD changer. The seats move up more than a usual two door to make it more convenient.

- Lorraine R

Compact 2-door car. Black. Manual transmission. Heated fabric seats.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

The Volkswagen beetle is a very reliable vehicle. It will run forever. It has heated seats, power windows, power locks. It has a manual transmission. Large trunk. Lots of legroom. Very comfortable. It is an adorable car and everyone loves them. In my experience, the alternators can be faulty.

- Morgan V

How I cannot open my passenger door from the inside, and what to do about it.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

The biggest problem is the door on the passenger side. It will not open from the inside because of an latch problem. I am not sure how to have it fixed and going to the dealer to do will cost a fortune. I have to roll down the window and then open the door from the outside which is a hassle.

- Corey A

Love my Volkswagen beetle! Do not look forward to having to replace it!

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I love my bug! I bought it brand new. . . And continue to drive it every day! It has small problems. . . But for me it still is a great vehicle! The windows have had to have work done on them. They both got stuck going up and down. The trunk does not latch well. . . And has not for years.

- Jane F

The blue VW beetle, ride in still and comfort.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

It is a very reliable and safe car. Hard to do maintenance with small front end. Costs a lot of money because of the time things take to fix. Had to replace the radiator and the wholeness front end had to come apart. Rides a little low to the ground so speed bumps need to be taken slowly.

- Hannah P

The 2000 beetle is very cute and easy to drive but difficult to work on.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I love my beetle, but it is hard to work on because of the compact engine layout. Whenever I need to get work done on my car, the entire front body needs to be taken off and it is sometimes difficult to find certain parts. It is also not very reliable, as it has broken down many times.

- Alessandra O

My vehicle is a Volkswagen beetle 2000. I love the sunroof and a little vase for the flower I also love the 6 disc CD changer. And I love being able to see everywhere. There's not very many blind spots.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

It looks very small from the outside and fit in any parking spot. It's quite roomy on the inside. But there's not very much trunk space. And if you're in the backseat and have long legs and the person in the front seat has long legs there's no room. But I have young kids it works great

- Nazera H

2000 Inchworm color Volkswagen beetle.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

It performs really well. I like the sunroof. I like how I can fit my car into basically any space. The color is unique. The trunk can surprisingly hold a lot of groceries. Unfortunately it only has two doors, which can sometimes make having more than one passenger a challenge.

- Samantha W

Overall for its size and look this beetle packs a punch.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle GL

This car has been through thick and thin. Going uphill and cruising car maneuvers and handles like a champ. Some issues I see is that since it is a European make some mechanical parts not in same spot. But if you like small and powerful you'd never go wrong with the beetle.

- Juan U

Love my bug want to continue to have one!

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I bought my Volkswagen beetle new in 2000. I love my bug! It was my first new car in 10 years. It is very dependable. It has a few problems.. But is a good car! I am planning on buying a new one in 2019! Looking forward to the new vehicle! Not the payments but the new bug!

- Jane M

Very tough car. It seems to hold up pretty well.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

Drives great. Do not have many problems with it. Good built car. It is a manual transmission so if it does not start a little push is all you need to get it going. My only complaint would probably be that parts are kind of expensive but they seems to last for a long time.

- Joan C

When my Beetle is working well, it's the best car ever!

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I love my Bug. It's sporty, fun, and has personality. I hate that it needs repairs very often, but it's 18 years old so I guess it's not unusual. I enjoy watching people play Slug Bug when they see me, and the smiles my car elicits. It makes ME smile.

- Ellen m

They attract a lot of attention from VW Beetle lovers and they are fun to drive, even for tall people like me.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

Although I love Volkswagen New Beetles, they are costly when it comes to repairs, such as replacing headlights. The layout under the hood makes it difficult for repairmen to do labor efficiently.

- Robert B

Very safe, Volkswagens are highly rated in crash tests.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

It is a reliable and dependable vehicle. Very safe and comfortable. I feel secure and in control when driving it. Maintenance can be hard. Money to fix because takes time with small front end.

- Priest P

That it's very unique and special and should not be laughed at.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I love its unique shape and design. I dislike it's outdated sound system. I have complaints on its engineering, as it seems to be complicated for regular mechanics to figure out.

- Gaby M

don't mess with it! this car has power

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

Love the smooth ride, turbo engine, cute look. I love the gas mileage love the German engineering. But it is getting a bit old...it might be time for a new vehicle!

- Kimberly P

It is fast. It is ready to go quick. Definitely fun to go in.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I like the sun roof and the turbo. Its fast and reliable. I dislike the way it doesn't start sometimes. It does the job. The back seats fold down which is handy.

- Sean G

1999 VW recurring maintenance.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I had to rebuild the engine last year because the former owner did not complete the engine recall notice; also transmission/shifting problems; also abs problems.

- Mona O

They last forever. Worth the money.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

In 400 more miles it will have 300, 000 miles on it. Purrs like a kitten, great on gas and low maintenance. An extra 2 inches of arm room would be great though.

- Cheryl C

As it gets older more and more small problems are starting to occur.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I wish I had better gas mileage but I love how small it is and I can park it anywhere. I also wish it was a new make so that I could have Bluetooth.

- Madeleine J

It actually has more room inside than what people may think.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I like my car because it is good to handle. I do not like it because it is not big enough. It is also really expensive to make repairs on my car.

- Ashley S

My car is my favorite color and was the car I wanted as a kid.

- Hailey s

It runs beautifully and handles like a dream. It is small and efficient.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

I like the size, the better gas mileage, and the way it drives and parks. I also enjoy driving it so much, it handles like a little race car.

- Michele B

Very reliable and goes as well as the day I purchased it.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle

It is so old some sensors randomly start to flash. The starter motor is sometimes stuck. The plus of the is it is shape and gas consumption.
