I have had my 1999 Volkswagen Beetle for six years and I have had to replace a little bit of everything. Everything that can go wrong with a car has. It is fun to drive a Bug, but it has so many blind spots.

I was so excited when I bought my
Beetle. I had wanted one since they
came out in 1998. I had about a good 2
months until I realized the air
conditioning didn't work, which was
just the beginning of my repair woes.
I have had my car in THREE times to
have the air conditioner fixed along
with the windows and window switches,
the gas and trunk hatches, the
temperature guage, and other problems.
In the two years I owned this car, I
took it to have it fixed TEN TIMES. My
clutch went out and it cost $1400 to
have it fixed. The week after that, my
check engine light came on. I sold
that lemon and bought a Civic Si.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY VW BEETLE....SURE,
I'VE HAD A FEW PROBLEMS WITH IT, BUT
WHO DOSEN'T HAVE ANY CAR PROBLEMS?? MY
WINDOW BROKE BUT THEY REPLACED IT &
ALSO WENT AHEAD & REPLACED MY OTHER
ONE, BECAUSE THEY HAD A NEW, IMPROVED
MOTOR FOR THE WINDOWS. I LOVE DRIVING
DOWN THE ROAD & SEEING PEOPLE LOOK &
SMILE AT ME!!! I WOULDN'T TRADE MINE
FOR THE WORLD.
A high-performance turbo model debuts this year. A small spoiler over the rear window is the only exterior telltale that the Bug next to you has the 150-horsepower 1.8-liter turbocharged inline four from the larger Passat sedan under the hood.
