There are people who have a clue at those stores and some who don't. Atleast they are working.

Like I said, everywhere I go, it's their first day or first week. Economy must be great, huh?

i work at a parts store & our system asks all those questions. i usually bypass them since i know it's not related, but if you bypass the question, the computer puts every single option on the screen (related to sub-models) if you bypass the question. then there are more part numbers to scroll through.....so basically, i sometimes as the stupid questions b/c i'm lazy at times, lol.

Sometimes those stupid questions do in fact make a difference. Ran into it with a honda one time. The O2 sensors are different if its a 2 door, 4 door or hatchback.. same motor.. same model.. but number of doors changes which o2 sensors you need to buy.

I had a '95 and a half when it was new. Had some of the improvements when they released the TJ. Rubber hood bump stops instead of the hoops, more powerful ( ) 4 cyl..... But I miss her. not the Ex that killed it though.

Actually '79 was the last Beetle, and they had thermostats even before that. It was a bellows in the cooling air stream that operated air damper flaps.
Not being picky, just that I'm an old VW guy.
The beetle was in production in mexico until 2003. Not being picky, but a bellows is hardly a thermostat and volkswagens suck. IMHO

It is called a thermostat...And as far as making them in Mexico until 2003, they were not imported here. In order to register one, the VIN has to be switched with an older chassis.
Volkswagens' sucking has nothing to do with the post. By this comment I assume I hurt your feelings. Sorry. You offend pretty easily, don't you?

Why would you ask the ex burger flipper at AZ for a part?
Even if they did manage to find it, it would be a sub-quality Chinese junk part anyway. Their stuff doesn't last long. Even still in the box it's defective.
And watch them - they advertise a shelf price, but charge more at the register.
I'm surprised they are still in business!
