1999 Volkswagen Beetle from North America
Good, but has to go
It hasn't been too terrible, but...
Cadillac converter went out... quite costly.
One time my window wouldn't roll back up.
Be sure if you ever get brake pads replaced that you get Volkswagen specific, otherwise they won't work and sound like screaming children. (that was as experience)
Trunk won't seal quite right.
Alarm system has a bug.
Wiring for trunk lights is not good. Lights sometimes shut off which is unfortunate when looking for something in the dark.
My driver side door fell off its hinges, very odd and quite expensive.
Passenger door handle is mess up.
This car has been treated very nicely! No kindness in return!
I am about to get rid of it hopefully for a fire bird. I wouldn't recommend keeping these cars past the five or six year mark.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Err, what is a "Cadillac converter"?

Cadillac converter = Fed-up (former) VW customer buying a GM product!
I think they mean catalytic converter. (So they aren’t a mechanic…)
Never the less spelling and terminology, sounds like another 'wonderful' VW ownership experience.

I'm a VW fan myself, and I just wish that VW would stop building their cars in Mexico (which is where the New Beetle is built) and start building more of them at Wolfsburg...
