1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I loved this car when i first bought it, but then after I had it for a week it was back in the shop. I've had the transmission replaced twice on this thing. The light bulbs keep goin out and the window buttons always break. My window broke while it was down which was horrible. The dealer always is really expensive too. My brake light switch went out too and I couldn't move my car. This car spends more time in the shop then it does on the road! VW seriously needs to rethink some ideas on the Bug. My interior door handles are pealing and the cup holders stink. I can't even put any drink besides a can in there. It also needs more horspower. It has horrible acceleration! Don't buy a new Beetle.

Best Features

The style, comfort, and the flower vase.

Worst Features

Better cup holders, interior, mechanics, electrial system, and make them better made. What happenned to German enginnering? German cars should not be made in Mexico.
