My dream car is a lemon :(

2002 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

I always wanted a bug, and made it a
goal to purchase one. I bought this
car brand new off the lot with 4 miles
on it. After 4 months of bliss, this
car became a nightmare. I have had
prolems with the oil light, check
engine light, airbag light, coolant
light, and the malfunction indicator
light. It has had the following items
replaced: a seatbelt, the faulty window
brackets that all the beetles had, the
instrument cluster (2 times), all 4
cylinder coils, a piece to the trunk
latch system, and last but not least,
that car is getting a whole new engine
put in it now!!! I am very very very
disappointed and have lost faith in
Volkswagon. :(

Best Features

The car's look, the turbo, auto spoiler, heated seats and defrosting outside mirrors.

Worst Features

Maybe they should start putting Toyota engines in these cars! Power seat option would be nice and cupholders that can fit tall drinks.
