From under my 2004 vw beetle give had water at a stay pace drip from the skid plate. Its the gasket seal in the water pump. After sitting awhile, or through season temperature exposure seals and gaskets may dry out, crack even wear away, leading to leakage. In the case of a water pump however, this actual part will require replacement vs repair.

Great Commuter Car — had the car since 2003. bought from vw dealer off lease. put 170k miles on it and still going strong. unique car - kind of cult-ish. get the nod of approval from the other "oil burners" at the diesel pump. My brother was recently in the market for a new vehicle. Bambi and the front end of his A4 didnt agree. I talked up the TDI and he ended up getting a new Jetta TDI. He loves it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a diesel. You cant kill them.

Cons: fine for one or two people. Too small for more than 2.

A Lot Of Power In A Compact Package — I love the power of this car, you put it in second gear and tromp on it and it puts you back in your seat. It runs and handles great. Does have almost100,000 miles but thats nothing for a VW

Pros: Nice little car, fun to drive, good power and acceleration, surprising amount of cargo room

Cons: Little hard for a bid person to get in and out of

It's A Love Hate Relationship — Love driving it around but sometimes can be a little cantankerous. Has some quirky features that seem to make things more complex than they should be like adjustable headlight position and turning the key to the left in the door winds the window down. Don't see the point. But overall I enjoy driving it so it's mostly love.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roomy up front and comfy to drive.

Cons: Automatic gearbox is slow and has a few "quirks"

Cute Little Bug — Good power for a 4 cylinder. Loaded with nice features that you normally don't find in a small/compact vehicle and roomy interior. Poor location of the exterior mirrors creates blind spots when turning - VW lowered the mirrors on later models.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Heated seats, power sunroof, peppy & good fuel economy

Cons: Too many blind spots

I Love This Car. — I've had this car for two years, I drive it almost every day. It gets great MPG especially with gas prices being what they are. The clutch is the one thing I hate, and it takes it a while to get up to speed but overall I love this car and would recommend a Beetle to anyone. They're so cute! Plus it's really entertaining to watch people punch each other as you go by, and little kids always love you.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: VERY fun to drive! Huge windshield, virtually no blindspots, heated seats VERY nice in the winter.

Cons: TERRIBLE clutches, they're so jumpy, you can replace the VW clutch with an Audi clutch but it won't make it too much better. It takes a few minutes to get up to speed as well.

My Little Dumpling — I really love this car. Now I drive a truck due to my lifestyle and no longer need this one. I plan on buying another VW Beetle in the Fall of 2013. They do tend to run a little rough like a go cart, so if you need a luxury ride, this car is not for you.

Pros: I think it is the cutest car I have ever owned. People always wave to you in a Beetle!

Cons: Not practical for moving or hauling things around however, I have fit a dishwasher into the back hatch.

Title Is Free And Clear — My daughter got tired of repairing the electrical system. This is the classic Beetle Turbo. The car was fun to drive. Ratings based upon the car when it was functioning. It would be neccesary to check out all internal mechanical componants for possible repair after sitting 8 or 9 years. Once rehabbed this would be a great car to own.

Pros: Body exterior in good condtion. Interior only used for 15,000 miles. In good condition except it has been sitting for 8 or 9 years.  

Cons: Has not been drive for 8 or 9 years

I'll Never Buy Another Volkswagen, Period!!!! — The beetle might be fun to drive, if it stays out of the shop long enough!!!!! There was a recall on the timing chain but we didn't know it until after we had to replace our engine because ours broke. Volswagen wouldn't do anything about engine repair except an offering of $250 credit toward a NEW Beetle. They weren't thrilled about my suggestion of where to put their offer.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's fun to drive.

Cons: Too costly to maintain
