VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE 2001 car safety problem was reported on Jan 07, 2011.VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE 2001, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with STRUCTURE . i purchased a 2001 new beetle gls turbo with 42k miles on it in 2008 for my teenage daughter. i have had this car garaged, oil changed, and have only put 8k miles on it in the three years i've owned it. at my most recent oil change, i explained to the vw dealership of the transmission issue which they brushed off as being the way vw transmission's do in and that they are not smooth running transmissions. during this 8k miles, i have went through two new batteries until the dealership made me aware of the need for a new alternator. after getting the new alternator fixed this week at the tune of $500, the tech informed me the transmission needed replacing at a cost between $4k-$6k. i had been noticing when i stop and then accelerate again, the engine hesitates and then slings forward so fast the tires will bark. it's hesitation almost cost me a rear-end accident not long ago. thankfully, everyone was just shaken up a bit. i have also had to replace the cabin air filter when it disintegrated and started blowing filter in her face as she was driving. all these repairs in the 8k miles i've put on it. the car at this moment now has only 50k miles and sits in my garage as i am afraid for my teenage daughter to drive it because of it's unreliability and safety issues. also, the console has broken, the clear coat is pealing off the interior doors, handles and dash. please help us because there are alot of people that depend on the vw's and cannot afford new, safer cars. *tr.Mileage was 48000 miles.
