I am the original owner of a Blue New
Beetle, we have had to Replace the 02
sensor, the windoew controls twice,
window regulator, and just yesterday,
door latch sensor, air conditioning
filter, mass air sensor, etc - most of
which were all out of warrenty. The
car was decent - I got it as my first
car. The safety was definetly a
selling factor. But, if we would have
known all the issues it was going to
have, we never would have bought it.
My interior door handles are peeling
too, and I don't use lotion... VW sure
gives everyone the run around.
The cd player isn't bad for factory -
thats about it
Electrical problems, more power, sun
visors way too small, cup holders
unusable. Lost the fun factor about a
year or 2 after in was released.
