    2000 bug, 2.0 , 90,000 miles and never had a serious problem. I tried to start it and the battery was stone dead. (twice in the past 3yrs the radio has stayed on after I pulled out the key and it ran the battery down. I assumed that was what happened. No big deal.) I charged the battery...

  9. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have the 2003 Turbo S - after reading a thread on here about electrical things not working properly (for me it's the passenger window and lock that suddenly don't work), I thought I should check connections (they are OK) and fuses.
