Volkswagen should be ashamed of themselves

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


I purchased the car of my dreams an aqua blue Beetle convertible, little did I know, my dreams would turn into a nightmare. Since purchasing this car last year it has been in the shop 12 times. I did not have it in for minor repairs these were all MAJOR! New transmission, new computer system, the top broke 2 times, the heating and cooling system failed 3 times and the car overheated twice. This car a piece of junk and I would not recommend it to ANYBODY. When Volkswagen was contacted regarding these issues, I basically got a so what tough luck response. SHAME ON VOLKSWAGEN.

Best Features

The car is darling.

Worst Features

STOP making cars that are nothing but garbage, I should've listened to other consumers when they said Volkswagen stands behind NOTHING!
