I have a 2001 new beetle which I've had for just over a month. (Lifelong dream!) I took it in for a service and got a call that there's no point in going through with the service because it needs roughly £1000 worth of work including welding work for underbody rust. The car itself was £300 and a different one of the same models around £1300-1500 in my area, plus travel costs because I live on an island. I am wondering if its worth doing the welding, which they expect will at least get me through over a year to the next MOT, and coating the underbody in waxoyl, or whether I should take a chance on a different Beetle. I dont have much more than a grand to spend and I am wary of taking on a monthly payment for one of the newer Beetle models at the moment financially. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
