2008 Volkswagen New Beetle S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)

Review

I bought this car less than a month ago, the second day I drove it, it stalled out at an intersection and I had to have it towed back to the dealership (burnt a coil and blew a fuse). Within a week later, the same thing happened again and again. Finally had to take it to a mechanic, said all 5 coils and spark plugs needed to be replaced. A week after that, I decided to just trade it in for something more reliable. On the way to the dealership, it stalled, started smoking and then caught on fire. It is now totaled and it is the worst car I have ever purchased. Save your time, its a cute car, but its NOT worth it.

Favorite Features

Gets up to speed quick, when it runs.

Suggested Improvements

Blows coils faster than you can replace them. Then blows fuse and possibly melts the connector, concluding to never ending problems.
