2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Fell in love with this car and bought it new. Within the first three months, I think it was in the shop about 4 times. Since then, particularly during summer months, it's in the shop on average about once every 6 weeks. Have had problems with the windows, the speakers, the battery (twice), the roof has broken countless times, the wiring on the tail lights, the airbag sensors, the blinker - and the door, which still isn't fixed. Also, the service at my dealership is terrible. They once replaced the wrong airbag so the sensor came back on a couple days later. I would ABSOLUTELY NOT RECOMMEND this car. They take no accountability and I will never purchase another VW, no matter how cute.
It's very cute.
Where to begin? Start by working out the glitches before they put a car on the market. Adequately staff dealer service dept. Spend less $ on marketing and more on building a better product. I'm so done with this car and ready to trade it in.
