    Seeking advice - my current car has the grim reaper comign for it and I have the opportunity to get a 2000 Volkswagen New Beetle with 140,500 miles. I am kind of in a pinch and it seems to be well maintained, so is it worth getting the bug to zip around in with those miles? How long until I have...

  8. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hi all, I recently bought my first car, a lemon-yellow 2005 New Beetle (not convertible) with around 70k miles on it. From the research I've done, it sounds like getting the water pump and timing belt replaced, and the transmission serviced, would all be good things to get done ASAP. Is there...
