  1. Buy a used New Beetle or Not

    Miscellaneous Hoo-Ha
    My 05 5spd diesel has been very reliable other than the turbo going early which was covered under the powertrain warranty. I bought her new so she has always had the right oil and other fluids plus maintenance is always done on time. It's a fun car to drive and gets 43-44 mpg in 50/50...
  2. Legal Action vs. Volkswagen?

    Legal action?! Let us know how that goes.:p The peeling dash is easily fixed - paint it or have a shop do it for you. I doubt that's a "health issue". The crayon smell...yeah probably not good for the body, but eat an extra carrot or something every day. :D

  9. Need feedback on TDI new beetles please :)

    Suggestion Box
    Get one with verified maintenance by a TDI mechanic and you should be fine. Check out for bugs for sale. Some owners have had cam issues with the BEW but my mechanic says he hasn't seen a failure when the proper oil is used. 170k on my 05 and only a few issues like the alternator...

  14. For those that need clear screw covers for their turn signals....I can get them!

    That's awesome Michelle but I think they're still available from 1stvwparts as they have been for awhile? That's where I bought mine from about 4 years ago. The bad part was that shipping cost more than the covers. :D
