VW Beetle-Air Conditioning problem
By R. Ehret on
2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback
I purchased the car 10/01 and in 6/02
discovered the air conditioning didn't
work. Neither the dealership nor VOA
would do anything about it. There were
2 major leaks-one in the AC Compressor
and one in the Evaporator Core. Cost
to fix $1800+. The warranty was only
for 2 yrs. or 24,000 miles and I was
told I was JUST out of warranty.
VOA should stand behind their vehicles
as they advertise because all mechanics
thatI have talked with say these parts
should last 7-8 yrs.
