1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback

Review

It is constantly running out of oil. Just had to put in 2 quarts yesterday. The door locks work only when they want to and the AC doesn't seem to be a cold as it should. Trying to work with the service departments can make a person go bald. (from pulling your hair out). They actually told me that my car was using up oil because oil in the US is different from oil in Germany so I need to check it often and add oil as needed. They estimated 1 quart every 800 miles. If this were true I'm sure VW would be importing SPECIAL German oil for VW owners, put an outragous price on it per quart and make a huge profit on it. My car only has 40k miles on it!!!

Fire the engineers who put this car together, RIP out the guts, START OVER, and don't sell it till you've gotten it right! Better yet...sell the company to the Japanese!!!
