1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I got this car for my 16th birthday. It was the car I always wanted...cute, fun...until you drive it. It had 30,000 on it when we bought it. Since then, we've replaced both window switches, both O2 sensors, radiator and engine mounts. The check engine light pops on periodically. We didn't recieve a maintenance record with the car. I don't think we would have bought the car if there was one. It's an electrical attrocity. If I've learned one thing, its not to buy a prototype.

Worst Features

Electrical nightmare, more pep please...115 hp doesn't get you up a hill
