I bought a stink bug

1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I bought the car with 22000 miles on it, it now has 52000. I have replaced both headlights twice, both power window switches, both power window motors, and both window regulators. The cooling fan has quit, two speakers don't work, the interior handles have peeled off, and if you're not a midget you will bump your head on the rattle infested roof.

Favorite Features

I don't know how but, it holds its value.

Suggested Improvements

change everything except the tires, that's the only thing I didn't replace. When something goes wrong on numerous american made models they have a recall. When every single Beetle tears up they raise the parts price. JUNK JUNK JUNK JUNK
