1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I beg you. I have spent over 3000 and now need a new transmission (everybody seems to need these with these cars.) The car only has 70 K's and when I bought it only had 39,000. NOTHING BUT A MONEY PIT of problems and every time I turn around I see more and more people with the EXACT same issues as me to a, "t." Like others have said, it should be illegal to make a car this unsafe, and unreliable. Even though my car is older there are similar problems with newer models of this car. I can't think of a worse car to own then this one. Seriously.

Favorite Features

NONE

Suggested Improvements

They should just learn to make reliable cars like Japanese makers. Seriously my favorite car is a BMW but after owning a German car with this many problems, I WILL NEVER EVER EVER own one even if it was given to me for free.
