55,000 miles and the car won't start!
By beetle_owner on


2006 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


This is the cutest most fun to drive car ever....when it works. Oh...are
you thinking about taking the car to a mechanic outside of the dealership to have it worked on for cheaper? Don't even think about it...many mechanics either won't want to touch your beetle or they will not be able to fix it since it's an electrical nightmare that's built like a puzzle! And how is it that a chord has broken on the top? That happened at about 40,000 miles. One more thing...if something breaks, like the radio...you have to get it fixed right away before it starts affecting other electrical things in the car...sigh...selling it asap once it comes out the shop (been there a month already).
