2006 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I have had one thing after another go wrong with my 2006 Volkswagen Beetle. The window was out of alignment, the emergency break over loose, the inside panel rattled, the trunk won't open with the auto-button on key. It rides good but all these little things make us wonder why we gave up the Honda Civic for a cooler looking (but not built) car. We've had to visit the dealer almost five times to solve these problems. For the Honda we just visited for oil changes and maintenance.
Nice design, drives well, has good milage and feels safe.
Better workmanship of the interior. I wish the dealers weren't so eager to sell the car if it is not ready for the consumer to purchase. We waited three weeks to get the car just to have it in this shoddy condition.
