What a Dissappointment
By RDFreier on
2002 Volkswagen New Beetle Turbo S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Had problems with the car from the start. Engine would just shut off while driving 60 mph on the highway. Wife had many close calls with that until they found the problem in the programming. Then car leaked water into the floor of the back seat. VW said it was the sunroof drain. After over $2k in repair charges problem still not fixed. Battery died, car sat a little and leak filled the floor. I've got bad mold smell, VW can't fix leak and I've basically got a junk car as I can't afford to replace the interior. What a piece of Crap. Should have listened to my little voice that said VW has reliability problems. Don't buy a VW
Great acceleration and handling with it works as intended.
Quit trying to make the car more complicated with programming crap and just fix your quality control issues. Repair costs are out of this world. I'm done with any VW product.
