1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I kick myself everyday for buying this car. It was so cute, that I didn't think before purchasing. It has given me problem after problem. My interior is peeling too. I have replace countless sensors. I now have a EC... sensor going bad. My gas cap release only periodically works. The paint chips easily, however, it still looks really nice with red colour wax. I needed a new throtle assembly last month, $1000 installed. I have put $3000 in three months. Time for new car, eh?

Favorite Features

I just picked the car up last night, it had been in the shop for 3 weeks. It drives fantastic. You have to give it to the Deutsch, they design a true drivers car.

Suggested Improvements

Mechanical. I think VW is depending too much on the attractiveness of the car, versus using quality as a selling agent.
