2000 Volkswagen Beetle GLX 1.9 tdi from North America
Engine shuts off unexpectedly when have the AC on..or even the radio.
Electronic control unit was replaced.
VW replaced the ABS system..due to the recall on this year..2001..but soon after, another problem occurred..they replaced the seat belt sensor..
Now, my 2 year warranty on the beetle is up, and I'm having more problems than ever with this car. Within the past couple of days, notices that whenever I try to accelerate to a different speed, the car shudders, and drops back in speed. Also, the ABS light flashes infrequently. I'm trying to sell this car..because I'm just sick of vw in general..would strongly advise people to never lease from vw..and read all reviews on the cars they're thinking about buying.
The fuel sensor went bad..reset the fuse..it works OK..for now.
Car would stick in gears..would not get out of park..vw dealership replaced the brake light switch..
Would tell people who are thinking of leasing from vw: DON'T!! You get stuck in one of the worst leases..and all that money you just paid goes for nothing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
