I was so excited when I picked up my
black 98 Beetle from the dealership.
However, this feeling quickly turned to
frustration after multiple problems
with this "car"...
1) car would not start--later
determined the engine fan was running
almost 24 hours a day, thus killing the
2) "check engine" light came on,
nothing determined to be wrong with the
car at that time. Very frustrating
problem that causes many headaches.
3) drivers side window would not come
up, part took over 3 weeks to get in.
4) when I shifted to 4th gear, and odd
clicking noise would come from the
fun to drive when it works
fix all the engine problems, computer
for crying out loud, put some decent
cup holders in this car
