1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I love this car, it's so fun. Use it as a
3rd car -about to sell it since it's hard
to get a car seat into the back.
Window switch problem, peeling
door handles (no lotion here!), badly
designed cup holders, had MANY
headlights and harnesses, plus
electrical problem I had to go to war
over...defective killed the battery
within 48 hours. They told me I
should "drive it more!" (how, since it
was always dead?) After calling VW
and causing a scene at the dealer
they finally diagnosed the problem. It
is cute, fun, very good pickup. I still
love it after all that. Good design,
German-style steering. And it fits my
6'4" spouse.

Best Features

Blue dash lights, tight handling, GREAT head clearance.

Worst Features

headlights, windows, door handle, electrical, vestigial cup holders
