I HAD to have it!! Now so SORRY!!!

1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback
Review
Problems that required replacement include headlight harnesses, door locks, window switches, air conditioning compressor and four batteries in less than five years (one exploded when I started the engine). The inside finish is peeling off, the radio is mostly static unless right in the city, the cupholders are pathetic and the VW emblems on the wheels have fallen off. I use only dealerships for my routine maintenence/service and they claim that my problems are unique. Each time I get ready to sell the car I have another $1000.00 repair bill and feel I must drive it a bit longer to justify paying the bill!!
Favorite Features
Fun to drive--I feel safe with the good ratings for that particular feature
Suggested Improvements
Have the dealerships take responsibility for the costly repairs by putting pressure on the manufacturers to stand by their vehicles. Be honest re: similiar problems being had by other owners
