1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I've had this car since it came out in 1998. Overall the car is alot of fun to drive, powerful and handles great. The only problems have been electrical.The front headlights are defective and the power window regulators were disigned poorly. I would definitely buy this car again but would get manual windows and a 1999-2001 since I think they have less electrical problems.

Best Features

The car is noticed often, even though it's been out for 4 years. Very safe feeling and great handling, even in emergency situations.

Worst Features

Hopefully they have fixed the problems with the headlights constantly burning out and the power window regulators.
