The Volkswagen Co. Not What It Used To Be
By George Lafont on
2008 Volkswagen New Beetle S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
Day one from picking up the car from the dealer the handbrake came off when I parked. The car doesn't feel at all like a German car, in fact it feels like it's coming apart. About 2 months later on my way home (45 min. commute) on a very hot Summer day, the underneath engine cover came loose fell off and broke into many pieces. When I took it to the dealer, they accused me of running into something and refused to fix it. The service manager even went through the trouble of fabricating a story that I ran over a parking turtarrier with a piece of rebar sticking out tearing the cover off and again refused. Both their customer service and chairman of the board also refused to help
At this point I'm disgusted with the car.
Build them in Germany not Mexico and be responsible of your car's defects.
