I purchased a 2003 new beetle in Dec.
of 2002.I rated this car so low because
there was a malfunction in my vehicle
that caused it to "melt down"&almost
caught on fire.This happened after a
year of driving my car.After taking it
to the dealership, they said that
because the"melt down"is considered a
fire, it voided the manufacture
warranty.My insurance co.determined
that the cause of the incident was due
to a manufacture's defect.After
reporting this to Volkswagon America,I
was told that there was nothing that
could be done.I was not satisfied with
the reliability of the vehicle and
there is a chance that this can happen
to other customers.
