I recently came across a 2001 VW Beetle for sale with only 7,200 miles on it. I currently own a 07 Rabbit and have had great luck with the car so naturally I would like to get another VW. The beetle has been sitting and has low miles however I'm not sure if it is a good deal. I have read many blogs about this car stating that they are a money pit. Is this true?
I have no idea what the cars history is. All I know is the interior looks like new and the outside has a small scratch.
I have read these cars are bad on O2 sens., had head light problems, transmission problems, air bag sens problems.
This car is only worth about $4,700 so if the transmission goes then it will not be worth it.
VW enthusiasts- I know beetles are not the coolest thing in the world but Im a college student and I love my VW Rabbit but she has too many miles and needs to go...
IS this a good trade up? or a money pit?
