1998 Volkswagen Beetle TDI turbo diesel from North America
Worst used car decision I ever made
Air conditioning compressor, transmission second gear and reverse, driver's side power window failing, can't open the trunk or gas hatch without prying them manually, check engine light on all the time, overall sluggishness.
Very cute and very fuel efficient. However, a disastrous money pit. It has cured me of my VW fetish -- I'm done, Honda here I come.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I bought a 1998 VW Beetle new. A 1.9 TDI.
At 150 thousand miles I had to have the engine rebuilt. It cost me $5,000.00.
The seats broke on me.
The alarm killed the car.
The air conditioner never worked from the start new!
Don't buy a VW!
The hatch back does not work.
The hood release does not work.
The E-brake does not work.
The paint is pealing.
The windshield cracked on its own. WTH!
