1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I haven't had any of the electical problems mentioned in the other reviews. My complaints are about mostly cosmetic problems. The interior door handles are peeling...I'm told it's from the lotion I use (?), the antennae is getting corroded, the gas cover has broken 3 times, I've had to replace the pegs on the hatchback twice. Also the doors are causing nicks in the paint on the front fender. Irritating little things, but overall I like the car.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage, "cute" factor

Suggested Improvements

better warranty, fix those door handles...lotion shouldn't make them peel.
