2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
I wanted one of these cars for ever. I finally bought one a year and a half ago. It has cost me more in maintenance and repairs in that year and a half than any other car I've ever owned for the entire time I owned them! I went over a bump and it cost me $850! There is always something broken, now it is a window sensor. Don't be fooled with the German engineering thing - It's now Mexican engineering and they are not the same. I am selling my little lemon bug. Lesson learned.
Looks really great, I get a ton of compliments.
How about you start building them in Germany again? Quality for the cost would be a novel idea.
