Poor Quality
By mas16 on


2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


Stay away - engineering and quality are very poor.
I bought the car new for my daugher for a graduation present.

With just over 50K miles we have had to rebuild the transmission and replace the cytelitic converter.
Also had numorous annoying but slightly less major problems.

My daughter had to stop usign the convertible top several years ago.
The darn thing is too complicated and something breaks about every third time it was used.

The scary thing is that every we encountered a problem I look on the VW forums and found that many other owners are experiencing the same problem.
