This is my second new beetle in as many
years. The first a 2000 GLX, I kept a
year before VW of Amer. replaced it
with a 2001 GLX, gratus. Car kept
loosing power after coming to a stop
and attempting to accelerate again.
They spent a year trying to correct
without success. New 2001 does the
same thing and now they "own-up-to"
it's "Turbo-Lag which all Turbos have
and They can't do anything about it."
...Cars mileage has never been better
than the infrequently twenty mpg.New
battery after cars warranty ran out was
$190.00 for replacment at !4,000 miles
Correct "Turbo-Lag"--- Correct their
epa estimated mileage to a realistic 15
to 20 mpg and reduce their thieving
battery replacement charge of $100
labor and 90.00 for the battery.
