I just bought a 2001 GLX, 5sd, with 93K. Everything seems to be okay and it runs fine at this point, but I only put about 200 miles on it so far. It seems from reading reviews online that people either hate their Beetle or love it. The more I read about some of the problems people have had, it makes me wonder if I made a wise decision to buy it. What is the best advise you could give me to keep it going with minimal problems. I would like to become one of the owners that like their Beetle.

It would be wise to make sure the timing belt has been replaced. When in doubt, go ahead and replace it. Sounds like you have a good cars that you like. My 99 has almost 170 K on it now and still runs like a top! O, by the way. Welcome to the new Beetle .org! :)

Welcome to the ORG from Tennessee!
I love my new beetle :D she has 215k her. Her valve body has JUST NOW wore out but, with her mileage I feel it's probably time. Not a complicated repair so she's on the mend :p. As with any car regular maintenance is key to longevity.

Glad you found us

:)
