engine light came on within 30 days and has been on feet since...I'm 71, alone, and no
money and purchased this cute little car for convenience..I thought...any suggestions
Sorry, no inexpensive fix. VW beetles are know to nickel and dime their owners. Your window regulators probably need replacing. Check Engine light, you can have the car scanned for the codes to see what error the engine management system has detected. Try to find an honest local mechanic vs the dealership. Ask a few friends on who they use for car care. FYI: Buying a used car always requires having a little extra money stashed away. You save on payments and insurance, but spend it on more repairs.
The person who answered before me is correct if you have no one to help you it could be expensive. Although there are things that you can do to get the upper hand. If the window regulator motor needs replacing, you can minimize the cost. Using aftermarket parts, like Napa etc. Avoid the dealer at all cost for parts if you can because they charge a premium. You can even get the check engine light scanned at a auto parts store if you are not in California.
