i bought my 2000 new beetle in feb 2010 and i have put probably 3000 or more into it with repairs have seen it be towed away 4 times, left me stranded for all those times. i have done nothing but regret buying that car. yes its cute but thats it. i am honestly scared to drive it places in fear that it will leave me stranded again. its a piece of junk, and everything is expensive to fix and a pain to fix as well. i do not suggest anyone buys this car. i really wish they would stop making them to be honest. that breaks my heart to say because i always dreamed of owning a beetle and that dream has turned into a nightmare.
it's cute on the outside, tell me the temperature outside... that's about it.
I had the same experience and no one wants to work in it or if they do they scr** you over! My dream as a little girl also became a nightmare. Drop over $2000.00 in it in a little over 4 months time. I traded it away finally after no lights, radio, blower motor, turn signals and windshield wipers and of course the engine light on and no one could fine the problem.
