Hi ya! I have a 2010 VW New Beetle. It fits me perfectly, and I’ve absolutely loved driving it. The headroom, legroom, and shoulder/arm room is incredible and really cannot be beaten in a car. It now has over 106,000 miles on it. I’m having an intermittent problem where the car will stall at idle - most often at a very long light. When it happens, I quickly put the car in park and then turn the ignition to off, then it will immediately start back up. It doesn’t make weird noises or throw codes with this. I have taken the car to be seen at the dealership and at a few different mechanic shops with no solution so far. With car prices being what they are, I’d rather fix my car and continue driving it than get something else. If I do have to get something else, I’d strongly prefer another Beetle either another New Beetle model or one of the more recent ones. If I do have to get a different car, what do you think about the reliability of a diesel model vs the gasoline engine? Additionally, would you recommend finding one of these as a certified model from a dealership so that there’s some warranty, or would you look at places like Carvana and CarMax instead? Thanks in advance for any advice!
