Volkswagen Beetle Reliability and Durability: Cons

2004 2dr Convertible turbocharged 105hp 1.2L I4
7-speed automated manual FWD
Despite having an extended warranty the vehicle was in the shop so often it became too inconvenient to own.
2000 2dr Hatch 115-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I bought this car as a "Certified Used". I replaced the main computer twice in the first 3 months. I have replaced 02 sensors every year, sometimes up to 3 a year. Repairs are expensive and required often.

2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

Its a Toyota, simple as that. They are built to last.
2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I am a stickler on maintenance and was very disappointed on the driver side drive shaft seal leaking twice! I was not given any reason why this would happened but so far since the last repair it seems all is fine. I change my own oil and was able to notice the problem way before it was serious as I notice an oozing of manual transmission oil around this drive shaft. I have not been able to find this is a common problem though.
2009 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have not had a single problem with the car in the first seven months of ownership. Put gas in, change the oil and it just goes.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Other than a few minor warranty problems the car is solid.
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I have had 3 Toyotas now and all have been trouble free for over 150,000km.
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
It has a good reputation. I have known many Toyotas to have well over 250,000 miles on them without so much as minor maintenance and a few small repairs.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Have owned this car for almost three years. NO need to go to the shop at all (oil changes and other routine maintenance has been done at home).
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Know others who own Toyotas and all are very happy.
2007 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
This car uses the tried and true 1NZ-FE engine and 2nd generation of the C50 transmission, both of which can take a licking and keep on ticking. It enjoys the typical and legendary Toyota legacy of reliability.
2007 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Many years history of solid red dots on Consumer Reports Reliability Survey.
