2000 Volkswagen Beetle

The Volkswagen Beetle received relatively few additions for the 2000 model year. The only notable upgrades were an improved anti-theft system, and traction control was added to the high-end GLX 1.8T Turbo trim package.

Other than that, standard equipment included power steering, power brakes, power windows and door locks, power heated mirrors, front and side airbags, air conditioning, cruise control, fog lights, and keyless entry. A five-speed manual transmission was standard while a four-speed automatic was available as an option. In addition, features such as leather seats and a sunroof were available as options on most versions of the 2000 Beetle, and as standard equipment on the GLX 1.8T Turbo.

Generally, drivers liked the car's handling, fuel economy, roominess (for a small car), and safety features. Others noted that it had some visibility problems out the back and sides, and some complained about the placement of some interior features. Still, most drivers raved about the New Beetle, appreciating its reliability, distinctiveness, and "fun" factor.
