This Little Bug Will Only Break Your Heart. — This car was my dream car when I bought it, but now it is just a money sucker. I have put in the same amount in repairs as I put in to purchase it and all of the problems are still not fixed. Breaks needed replaced. The air pump, timing chain, throttle control, and ignition coil have all died while I was driving it and gave no warning as to when those would happen. Mechanics would say the car is fine and then one thing after the other would happen. The car has been in the shop at least 8 times in the past two months. All the dealers that fix it charge way too much since it is a foreign car. While this car is cute and fun to drive, it is absolutely not worth the repairs. Never buying VW again.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: sunroof.

Cons: repairs

Great Little Car. Probably Be A Classic Someday. — I like the quick pickup, overall sporty look of convertible, and gas mileage. Dislike the fact that there's no factory installed CD player (only a Cassette player). This is weird for a 2004 model. CD's aren't commonplace in Germany or what?

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Good looking car...good gas mileage...quick pickup for a 4-cyl

Cons: Even though it's a 2004 model, there's no factory installed CD player (only cassette).

Overall:

Looks Great. — I like the look of the New Beetle. Driving it is fun. But I knew when I bought it there would be problems. I bought an extended warranty and over $13,000 dollars went into the car in the 4 years I have owned it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's fun to drive and it is cute to look at.
It makes me smile.

Cons: Cost of repairs is expensive. Window regulators break constantly. Replaced each one a minimum of 3 times.

Tears Of A Clown Ca — This car is screaming yellow and very cute. I get lots of positive comments from others. The front seat is very roomy and comfortable. The car is built solidly and I do feel safe in it even though I've heard horror stories about having a wreck in one. I bought it used and with what I thought were some minor problems. However, the mechanic told me the costs to repair these minor problems would be excessive. For example, in the Pontiac I used to drive, I got the fuel filter changed for free with an oil change. Now, in the bug, it costs over $60 plus tax just to get the fuel filter changed. Wow!!! You can't get away from the fact that it's a blast to drive though.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I primarily zip around town.  This car is a great little zipper!

Cons: Repair costs are awful!!!
