1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

Recently I've been driving a Focus. I like the Beetle so much better: the way it handles, the conveniences, its smooth acceleration and its look. I have had little annoyances with the Beetle: power windows failing, heating vent shut-off valve broken, power gas cap didn't release once, headlights burned out quickly, keyless entry not working (battery dead?), cassette player died. Other than that crap, I love the car.

Favorite Features

Personality Headroom Convenience package Cargo space Gets out of its way Great suspension and handling Variable-speed intermittent wipers Heated mirrors Vase

Suggested Improvements

Appears that these items were poorly designed: Power windows Power gas cap compartment release Cassette player Have to use the A/C to defog the w/s Can't quite get comfortable in the seats
