Jun 242003

Beetle 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,000 miles
At and after 30,000 miles many mechanical failures including 2 alternators replaced, 2 batteries replaced, epc light had come on twice, brake light defaults, signal light defaults. Most of this waas fixed under warranty, however, the A/C system stopped working at 65,000 miles and is not a freon issue. The A/C was not covered under warranty.
