I am new to the forum and needed to introduce myself. I have been a VW owner for less than a week. Bought a used 2000 new beetle for my daughter and we are already having trouble. I'm pretty sure she burned up the clutch tonight... I suppose I am looking for advice from other VW owners who love their cars... or daughters... or daughters car... whatever. I am sure it will work out eventually but I am a little worried because 4 hours ago the car was running smooth. Now I can't get it to start. Any suggestions on repair work. I have done some moderate repair work myself. Changing break pads etc... but never pulled a transaxle to work on a clutch. Anyone have experience with any VW repair shops in Salt Lake? Lots of questions. I am hoping to have the work done either by myself or a shop before September.
