I have a 2005 VW Beetle with 2.0 engine. My mechanic said I need a new ECU. He is
leery of any besides factory. How reliable are rebuilt ones, and where can you find them
As they are so expensive from the factory I would try to find a running unit at a wrecking yard that has matching numbers first just to confirm that that is the actual problem, and if it is then you have some time to save up and purchase a new one, the reason he is suspicious of remanufactured units is he has had problems with them, as has most everyone.
That is what I have decided. Found one online for $225. Thanks for your help
I think you should get a second opinion-
