scotty my mother REALLY WANTS A VW bug i hold her that they are money pits but she REALLY wants one now granted she is 63 years old and from an era when the bug were reliable cars if i REALLY want a modern bug what should i do ls swap?

they are endless money pits, period. That said, you buy a brand new one, they generally don't start falling apart for 6 years or 80 thousand miles or more. It's her money and if she wants a new one, go

If your mother really wants a VW Beetle, tell her to get a diesel version. They're all fixed up now.
