1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I am in my late 40's, the "Only" driver.
Hood latch broke. Dealer said - "Never
saw that before." Hmmmm
Cable to shifter broke. Dealer said -
"Never saw that before." Hmmmm # 2
Window switches - will be replacing
again. Just a plain Hmmm from dealer.
Interrior is comming unglued; hand
brake button gone. Very disappointed
with the quality of interrior.
Replacing front headlight bulbs
requires the dexterity of a surgeon.
Now have a serious rattle coming from
underneath when it is started.

Worst Features

Quality, quality, quality. I have had a '65 bug, '71 bug, '73 Karman Gia, '77 Rabbit Diesel and this thing. Unfortunately, this is my last VW.
