I have been quote $800 to replace a/c compressor. Is this a good price? I check fuses, could ther be another cause for "no cool". Thanks

NO cool air out of A/C at all. Got estimate for $1,000 to replace evaporator core, expansion valve and dryer with a flush to clean system. Is this excessive?

Had a rear end collision in 2002 New Beetle. The shocks in the rear bumper did deploy, contracted to absorb the hit, then returned to original position. Have seen that the bumper shocks must be replaced after collision. They are only good for one incident. Insurance Adjustor does not seem to know this. Any comments? Ideas?

car started off by needing rear brake pads,so decided to do front aswell. pedal was nice and firm before replacing all pads. all pistons went back in easily but for some reason, now has very spongy pedal and goes to the floor. removed all pads and seems that front pads arent grabbing rotors like if the pistons were stuck? removed pads and they come out fine, bled ft brakes and still nothing,master cylinder?

I just had my waterpump, thermostat & timing belt replaced at 62,500. I only had the car for exactly 1 week. Is there any way the previous owner could have known this was an issue prior to me buying the car? Also, since it was fixed my temperature light is now blue when I start the car for the first time in the day. It stays on for a few minutes and then goes away. It did not do this when I first got the car but it did after I had it repaired. Is there an issue?

Bought a 2006 Volkswagen July 9th,2010. About a week after purchasing the vehicle the exhaust malfunction light came on. We took it to a service person and we replaced some part under the hood which any person could have replaced. HOweve the exhaust light came on after replacing that. Then, we took the car to a place that had a certified volkswagen service person who said the part could have been defective so we replaced it again. The light came on again. We took the vehicle to the certified service person 3 times afterwards and he could not find out what the problem was. We finally took the vehicle to a dealership in Va. and $1400.00 latter we got a new valve cover plus some other repairs. Four days latter and the light come on again. I am frustrated and don't know who to trust or believe. I thought dealerships had all the equipment to perform the test to determine what the problem is. The Volkswagen owner's manual is very vague and really offers no information but to take it to a dealer. Give me a break. I can't keep putting money into this used car. I could have bought a new car. Please any advise or information you can offer will be so much appreciated.

just bought the 2003 Vw beettle and love it, however we have a buzzer that comes on now and then not all the time, but no light indicators on. Then when we turn the lights on it becomes a constant buzz. Will go off and then come back on
