Summary:

A great all day classic car

Faults:

The car came out of a collection and had stood too long. In the beginning I had some electrical problems with the fuses. After regular use, these problems are gone. Now, after 13000km in 9 months starter broke down. It was no big deal to find a reconditioned one at a reasonable price.

General Comments:

The car runs great! I went into the Swiss mountains for skiing: Great on snow. I went to South France: No heating problems. To use the Beetles claim: It runs and runs and runs.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
