I traded this car in two years ago, and still keep thinking about how awful this car was and felt a need to warn others. It was cute, fun to drive and a real conversation starter, but the quality was TERRIBLE. I would drive down the street and pieces of the car would fall off (both on the exterior and interior). The car was three years old when I sold it because I couldn't afford the maintenance. I spent over $2,000 in an eight week period on various repairs and the dealership still didn't think they had solved one of the problems. This was an emotional purchase because of memories of my father's 60's Beetle, but a VERY EXPENSIVE trip down memory lane. I will never buy another VW ...
Cute and fun to drive.
QUALITY, QUALITY, QUALITY, QUALITY (did I mention quality ?)
