2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


If you are thinking about buying a new
VW Beetle, think again! This is the
biggest piece of junk on the market!
I have lost count as to how many times
my car has been in the shop. It is in
there right now because it will not
start! They are cute and fun to drive
but not reliable! I have had just
about everything you can imagine go
wrong with my car. I have had five
oxygen sensors replaced, my CD changer
replaced three times and have had
several other issues. My Instrument
Cluster went out and it is $300.00 to
replace. The dealership charges
$235.00 for a new battery! I just
spent $300.00 two weeks ago to replace
a bad Temperature gage. Do not buy!
