I needed a commuter car.
I bought my yellow bug used at 100K km.
I now have 380K km on it.
I replaced the clutch about 40K ago, upgraded to a racing clutch without the double throw.
The car has has brakes at the normal interval, had to have have the AC repaired last year after 12 years service.
Everything else works great, I hope to get 500K on her, the only issue I have is the running boards are too easy to rot out... but its a cheap fix.
Im now looking for another TDI for the wife... BTW I drive it like I stole it and average 53-56 MPG
Oh yeah, women seem to like the yellow beast.
