    • Fastest Bug I have ever owned.

      Car is dependable. Drove it from Oregon to California and back with no problems the first week I bought it. The only on going problem I have had with the car is with the windshield wipers. They blow a fuse in the rain only when it’s windy. Replaced the wiper motor and the wiper arm assembly but the problem has not gone away. Next I will try to piggyback the wiper wire. Mechanically the car is stress free because I will make it from point A to point B without a hitch. AC, Heater, Power mirrors and Cruse control are important to me and they all work great.
    • Not worth the money

      Not only is the car more expensive to fix than a BMW, I had one problem after the other. I put new breaks (front AND back), a waterpump, ball joints, and more into it in less than six months. I put about $1,000 into the car, and I still have problems. VW's are known for electrical problems and it has proven to be true in my case. It does get pretty good mileage, about 32-34 MPG but it is not worth all the trouble and money when I only owned the car for two years.
    • THE WORST CAR EVER BUILT

      Bought the car brand new. Now with 40,000 in 6.5 years. VW was great with their handicapped driver program. The car got great safety ratings. So, it was a no brainer. Well, that was the END of the satisfaction. Poor gas mileage, that has never improved.(15city/19hwy) Many electrical problems, WAY TOO MANY RECALLS!!!(15 so far) Some for the same issue. Poor engineering, quality, & reliability. Dealerships are not equipped to take care of the problems.(I have tryed 4 in my area.) Every plastic piece on the car that could possably fall off, HAS. AND, what is up with the "Stewart Little" sunvisors??? I think they should have kept this car on the drawing board. This is definatly NOT a Volkswagen like I remeber. DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE CARS!!! NEW OR USED.
