Why I regret buying the 2005 Volkswagon New Beetle

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.
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.
