Question about 2006 Volkswagen New Beetle
The best way to determine the problem is to get the trouble codes read.
The most common issues are the brake switch (actually on your brake pedal) and the MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor). Since you're experiencing a loss of power I would definitely go with the MAF.
If you were having trouble shifting out of park (if you have an auto) I would say brake switch (this switch has been recalled by vw 2x).
Getting the fault codes read would definitely narrow it down, but I'm betting on the MAF.
Please rate/vote! Thanks!
