2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Bought this car used. It was Clean on Carfax and had only 6,700 miles on it. I have only had it month and a half. It has been back for repairs 4 times. The window stopped going up and the convertible top would jam. Also, it has starting squeeking and rattling so much it drives you nuts. VW service is the worst. They take forever to get you your car back and then most times have not fixed it properly. I am fed up already thinking of bailing. I had a 99 Isuzu Amigo that ran 10x better and never a problem. I should have learned about German cars from our nightmare BMW 740i.
Cute factor, handles well, when I have gotten to drive it.
The cupholders are a joke. I can't put in an in-dash CD player. Not real problem with ipod. Really noisy. Bad quality.
