In 2008 I bought a 2006 New Beetle hatchback similar to the one in my avatar. That is from the VW dealer certified and warrantied.

During the warranty period there were several repairs that would have been expensive, mainly to the alarm system and no problems with the power train. Holding up real good since then with no major problems.

Usage is mostly local commute and shopping, but there are a few long road trips in that period. Routine maintenance is a bit expensive (like oil changes). But on the whole, I'd say worth it.

BTW, I've been getting letters from the dealership offering good prices to trade it in, but where could I get as good a car to replace it for that kind of money? And I don't want a bigger one.

Then just hang on to this one, until the answer is much clearer. :)

Years later, still my every day car and going strong. :cool:

Routine maintenance is a little on the expensive side, but no major repairs as of yet.

I did replace the shocks along the way.
