Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Every now and then my car would struggle to start. Also, everyday I would get a new
random warning light. It could be airbag one day and then brakes the next. Been
happening for half a year now.

VW bettles are know to have many electrical issues. Hard to diagnose electrical issues over the internet. Since you are getting warniag lights you can scan for the codes to help find what the real issues are. Good Luck!
