2002 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
We have never bought a new car that had so many problems in such a short mileage life, the window fell out in the first month it was purchased. The brake lights went next, then the a/c, it had a hesitation from day one on take off and after 2.5 years the mass air finally failed, there are no turn signals on the dash gauges [intermittant]. The latest is the dealer said the fuel pump failed and they won't replace it because it had bad gas. They want $600+ to fix it and the car is under warranty. I'm a mechanic and I have never seen a electric fuel pump fail because of so called bad fuel, a defective part yes. I got a different VW dealer to agree to repair it.
