Finally after years of my wife saying I never get the car I want . I always get the car we need . We got the car she wanted. IT'S an 07 new beetle convertible lucky find it only has 38k on it. We both had bugs back in high school a 61, 68 , and a 70. I have to admit I resisited because the reviews are not that great but I'm in it for the long hall now. My concerns are not the little stuff breaking but that valve body issue on the auto trans. Is there any way to prevent it? What mileage does it happen at? Is the new replacement part still defective? I'm not afraid of a wrench.
