1998 Volkswagen New Beetle TDi 2dr Hatchback


I love my bug unfortunatly since the
warranty has expired: I having a
variety of problems.
The electric window on the passenger
side failled. The onboard computer is
now having problems again after having
been replaced under warranty. The cost
for changing of a headlight was $500.00
( an internal problem ) One of the
headlight burned out again 3 months
after replacement the other one after 6
months. The molding on the back window
is falling off.
Volkswagen has spent massive amounts of
money on advertisements to make us
forget about their not so good
reputation. It appears to me that they
are still unable to build a car without
