Why I regret buying the 2005 Volkswagon New Beetle
By javidiaz on


2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


I made the huge mistake of purchasing a 2005 Volkswagon New Beetle last year. This was a used car meant to be a small retirement gift to myself, and a year later, after 4 visits to the mechanic, $2500.00 dollars in repairs and a looming transmission problem, I am now faced with having to trade this blue nightmare in for a more reliable car. Any smile I had on my face was wiped off by the pure unreliable nature of this vehicle and what this year of driving what I consider the worst vehicle ever made has been to me. I have owned Ford, Dodge, Honda, and never experienced a poorly engineered vehicle until I drove the 2005 VW New Beetle. Heed my review and stay away from these cars.

Best Features

I haven't been able to enjoy any of the features since shelving money out to repair the faulty design and engineering that was applied to this vehicle has consumed my focus.

Worst Features

I will never purchase another VW vehicle.
