Run... dont walk and find another car!!
By doodlebughi on


2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I bought my turbo conv. beetle used in 08 with 39000 miles on it.
I starting having problems with the drivers side window not going down within the first year and it just escalated from there.
I have since replaced 3 of the 4 windows to the tune of $800 a PIECE! I have just now reached 70k miles and my transmission is shot.
It appears this is a very common problem and VW refueses to deal with it or make good on it.
I now have over 5k in repairs into this vehicle that is not worth much and my mechanic is saying another 5800k to get it going again.
I have loved the look of my car and how fun it is to drive.....BUT, I will Never ever by another VW. what a money pit!!
