2005 Volkswagen New Beetle

- nice look, good straight line performance, solid feel
- cheap material, everything breaks, VW provides lousy service
This car looks very nice and I feel more confident taking corners and driving at higher speeds, than in most american and asian cars.
The bad news is:
there is not much space in the back, passengers will always hit their head on the rear window, so its practically a two seater. Things constantly break. The armrest broke three times, the transmission was replaced, both windows broke, there was a waterleak, the mirror broke, ... I could go on and on, there are 23 pages of service history. Most issues were fixed under warranty. Two days after the warranty ran out the armrest broke again: $260. Considering all this plus the dealerships arrogant attitude, I will get rid of this car, and not buy any VW cars again any time soon. I know a few people who haven't had any problems with their VW, so YMMV.
