2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

After the long wait for the Convertible Bug. You would think that they could get the top right! I mean afterall the car is approaching 30K and yes its a BUG! I purchased this car in April 03. Since then the car has been in for service 4 times. From the top jamming/breaking, to the Transmition and tiptronic failing. THis car has been a nightmare. VW service and parts is a total disaster. They dont even carry as much as a cigarette lighter that isnt on back order. It was so exciting to get this car only to be a great disappointment. you might spend more time with a service rental.. then your own vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

I suggest you wait a WHILE before buying this car and also research VW's Recent ratings on reliability and service BOO!
