VW New Beetle Convertible / don't buy

1 United States

2005 vw new beetle convertible has design flaw! I've needed to replace three electronic window mechanisms which require high labor hours - front side windows nearly $800 each and rear side windows nearly $400. Dealer cannot repair - must replace entire mechanism. First time was at 3 years old. Seems to me this is because the over use of automatic window drop down & up everytime door is opened or closed to fit with the convertible fabric top. Additionally, my top is now not rolling properly and I rarely use it! Great car if not for these issues but I will not buy another one!
