Do not waste your time on Beetles PLEASE
By lylarose13 on
1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback
I beg you.
I have spent over 3000 and now need a new transmission (everybody seems to need these with these cars.)
The car only has 70 K's and when I bought it only had 39,000.
NOTHING BUT A MONEY PIT of problems and every time I turn around I see more and more people with the EXACT same issues as me to a, "t."
Like others have said, it should be illegal to make a car this unsafe, and unreliable.
Even though my car is older there are similar problems with newer models of this car.
I can't think of a worse car to own then this one.
They should just learn to make reliable cars like Japanese makers.
Seriously my favorite car is a BMW but after owning a German car with this many problems, I WILL NEVER EVER EVER own one even if it was given to me for free.
