2006 Volkswagen Beetle TDI Reviews
Person with signal light problem. With allot of cars if the bulb(s) are not working the flasher wil click once and then stay on, by the sounds of it, you have a bulb problem, or corrsion on wires. Take the bulbs out make sure there is no corrosion in the sockets, when replacing them put a little grease on the contacts
I had the 1999 Beetle and now I have the 2006 TDI Beetle. It is a fun car to drive. More pick up and go. It weights more which I think helps it to hold the road better. More interior room in the TDI. The AC is not the best, but it is workable. It has a good radio, just wish it had the touch screen and navigation system too. I plan to keep this car forever. I may get a second car to drive, but the Beetle will always be my favorite.
