1998 Volkswagen New Beetle TDi 2dr Hatchback

Review

Bought this car almost 3 years ago and I want to hug it every day. This is TDI GLS version with an automatic transmission. Suprisingly good acceleration off the line (even with the automatic). I test drove a 5 speed and as expected the performance was more lively than the automatic.....but the automatic is good. Aside from regular oil changes (synthetic only) and a new set of front brakes, there have been absolutely no mechanical problems. (I think the TDI engine is bulletproof). I would highly recommend this car. I am getting about 530 miles out of a tank of gas (with a heavy foot).

Best Features

Fuel economy, fit and finish exceptional, headroom, cute-as-a- button!!!!!!!!

Worst Features

Volkswagen would do well to offer the 130 bhp TDI engine offered in Europe or at the very least the 100 bhp TDI!!!!!
