Since I got this car, there was only one problem with it and it was EZ Lube's fault. Took it there for an oil change and the next day oil was on my driveway. I recommend getting a Beetle. It's one of best cars I ever had and I think it's really reliable. All these other people who had problems with it probably didn't really take good care of their Beetles. My Honda Civic had more problems than this car.
The color, Uni-Red :) the overall look of the car, the CD-Changer, everything!
The dealers shouldn't charge so much for service. One of my headlights burned one dealer told me it cost $54 to fix it if I had a bulb and $74 to fix it without the bulb. I took it back to the dealer I bought it from and they did it for free. And the bulb cost like $10 at AutoZone.
