1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

first, this car sets so low to the ground that I scraped the bottom and broke the oil pan, 2x. costly repairs! Then the it overheated and the timing belt, pump had to be replaced, another costly repair. The windows don't work, especially in winters. The door doesn't open on the passenger side and a rock hit the windshield and put a big round crack on the driver side. Now, the check engine lights comes on and when I put it for diagnosis, it says that a valve is going in the wrong direction. What next!!!! the door lining is falling down on me when I drive so have to use duck tape to keep it in place. never will I buy another german made car, made in Mexico...

Favorite Features

engine sounds fun when driving

Suggested Improvements

no electric windows, better engineering so that it doesn't fall apart with every bump and higher off the ground and no plastic parts.
