- Good drive when all is OK. Ride and appearance are great
- Three warranty repairs in four months of car purchased in May 05.
New 2005 beetle. The old check engine problem happened after only four months and two days after 9.000 miles and 10K maintenance. Repair was oxygen sensor. Also, chirp nosie comes from rear of car when going over rough roads (of course not all the time). One visit to dealer confirmed (in for 10K maintenance) the chirp noise but technician needed to have it again for a second visit. The second visit (also for the check engine light) will now lead to visit number three as they could not replicate the chirp noise. Number 3 warranty item, rear cup holder failed within one month of purchase. On order now for two months.
But, great car when all is well! Jury still out on keeping for long term. I have owed cars from Honda, Toyota and Nissan. Level of problems similar to my last Nissan-same check engine issue.
A lot of service and warranty activity for a NEW car!
