I've had an amazing experience in the
98 Beetle. It's my first car and is an
excellent option for the teenage
driver. It's incredibly safe! After
being rear ended in a nasty collision
that left a Stanza totalled, both
passengers in my car walked away
without a scratch. The car took quite
a hit and was driveable; however, it is
especially hard to repair because of
the build of the car and it's low
level. The Beetle has rarely failed me
or even let me down in the least. It's
fun, it's safe, it's reliable, and it
gets the attention of the opposite sex;)
You've gotta love that panel all lit up
at night. It's absolutely gorgeous.
The factory sound system is incredible
Those little parts like the emergency
break knob have a tendency to fall off
easily. It's not a huge problem, but
it gets annoying.
