2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback
Heres what I went through in the ten months that I owned my bug before trading it in: 2 new alternators ($400 each), 4 new tires ($450 for all), getting stranded b/c the battery was dead all the time, new front brakes ($300), and then, the mother of all, in one weekend- oil change that led to $800 repair for hose that kept engine cool, $900 for new timing belt in the engine, and the guy also told me it would need a new front axle. I said forget it, so I traded it in the next day for a 2006 Hyundai sonata which drives like a Lexus!
the turbo, and that was only when it worked. the looks. and heated seats.
anything electrical. my check engine light was on for 9 months out of the ten months that i owned it.
