2002 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This car has been in the dealership 12 times in 6 months for stupid things like spark plug wires and everytime it costs at least $400, if you want a car that is cute and reliable get a Japanese car like Honda/Toyota, steer clear of German cars, they are expensive and so is the upkeep. When you average out the costs its about $100-200 a month for repairs alone.
Don't make the cars so fast, and stop making them in Mexico, go back to Germany.
