2006 Volkswagen Beetle Reviews

It's my 2nd Beetle and it has 270,000 miles but it was a terrible car compare with my first Beetle 2002.
Car was not well done from the beginning and service would not help much as all problems never were fixed (just short term fix). To make long story short the car was falling apart from the beginning despite that I do take good care of my car.
I do not think I'll buy VW Beetle again. Very much disappointed !
