Complaint - Electrical System

WE PURCHASE OUR 2002 VW BEATLE FROM A PRIVATE 6 YEARS AGO. WE HAVE REPLACED THE FUSE BOX ABOVE THE BATTERY ON 3 PREVIOUS OCCASIONS AS THE BOX SHORTS OUT AND MELTS CAUSING THE CAR TO TURN OFF AND NOT RESTART. THE FIRST TWO TIMES WE HAD REPAIR FACILITIES FIX THE PROBLEM TO THE TUNE OF $500 PLUS EACH TIME. THE 3RD TIME THIS HAPPENED I ORDERED THE PART ON LINE AND DID THE REPAIR MYSELF. WELL IT JUST BURNED OUT AGAIN THIS WEEK WHICH NOW MAKES 4 TIMES IN A 6 YEAR HISTORY THIS HAS OCCURRED. I TALKED WITH VW CONCERNING THIS AND THEY SAID THE CABLE WAS TOO SMALL WHEN VW FIRST MANUFACTURED THE CAR. SO THE 3RD TIME IT WENT OUT I REPLACED THE SO CALLED FAULTY CABLE AS WELL. WELL I GUESS THAT WASN'T THE PROBLEM AS I SAID IT NOW BURNED UP AGAIN AND THAT WAS REPLACING THE CABLE AND GOING TO A LARGER GAGE SIZE WIRE THAT VW SUGGESTED. NOT WHAT SHOULD I JUST EXPECT IT TO HAPPEN AGAIN. NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAVE SEEN THIS SAME COMPLAINT SEVERAL TIMES WHEN IS VW GOING TO STAND UP AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY. I KNOW HAVE SPENT OVER $1500 FIXING THE SAME THING NOW FOR THE 4TH TIME. VERY DISAPPOINTING VW.
