Nothing But Headaches!!!!

2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Bought my car used with 25,000 miles on it and within first year was met with of course the rear window not working issue that looks as though is a "normal" problem with this type of car. So needless to say $1,000 to fix and then front headlights blew out twice within a few months??? Now dealing with transmission "bucking" issues and passenger window not working and convertible roof not working!!!! help!!!!! NEVER AGAIN BUYING A VW...

Favorite Features

The look of it and when the convertible roof was working was fun to drive

Suggested Improvements

Please VW issue a recall on all window regulators so save you buyers from these headaches...
