Ive been looking at beetles for a 2nd vehicle gas saver to drive around locally I have a full size truck and the mileage kills me. I have found lots of the 2.0 engine beetles in the $2500-$3500 range with around 150,000 miles. Are these good engines? Any known problems or ones I should stay away from? I've heard some people say stay away from these cars when they tear up they are costly to fix. I live in a small town and the nearest VW dealer is 2 hours away. I've also found some TDI beetles what kind of mileage is high for these engines? Saw one with 300,000 miles that has been serviced regularly is it done or have some life left? I would really like a 5 speed I've heard to stay away from the automatics.
