Why this is my last VW purchase
By finalstraw on


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


After owning many VW's and with a lifetime of great memories I've got to accept the fact that VW's have never been reliable and I've spent waaay too much time and waaaay too much money for those memories. The final straw happened today; I received a Warranty Extension notice in the mail about the transmission valve body in my convertible. WOW!...VW finally admitted there has been a problem and they were going to fix it. WRONG! I was out of the warranty window by 2 months - but they could repair it for $2-3k! VW lost me forever. I wish I could recapture the time that I've wasted fooling with VW's. Unless you want to spend a chunk of your life hanging out in garages with mechanics - stay away!
