1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback
As the title of the review states this car has totally sucked the money out of me. So far I have put $1000 in it, but it needs MAJOR repairs...Recently, the air bag light has come on and stayed (checked the code in computer and it disappeared, came back 3 days later, told could be electrical glitch). Passenger door lock switch needs replaced, the relase to shift A/T from park won't work, and now, no brake lights. I HATE this car now but loved it when I got it...It has been a complete NIGHTMARE!!! Major Electrical problems with VW's (read the rest of the reviews)...STAY AWAY or you'll be sorry.
When it runs, it has a pretty smooth ride, kind of like a BMW 318i or 318ti. Cute look.
Cup holders are in the most rediculous place, electrical system is very unreliable. Factory radio is absolute junk.
