1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback

Review

I think the bug is the ULTIMATE road trip car in that it's just a blast to drive... it has its quirks, but so do all cars.. and I prefer to see these "quirks" as "character"... It's a great car for med-long commutes as well as sporting arond town.. as aforementioned, it's also done a few long hauls with me with no major problems. it's a car that you instantly make a part of the family... i would recommend it to anyone who's not in dire need of tons of trunk space, but loves an airy, roomy, comfy, super fun car... i'd definitely also consider doing some upgrades, too (i.e. performance chip, exhaus improvement, etc.)

Favorite Features

the stereo, solid feel, handling, manual trans, mileage, comfort, fresh-ness!

Suggested Improvements

no arm rest in 98! also too many blind spots - which can be a bit tricky sometimes... back hatch makes a weird noise but i's not too bad. also could use a lot more kick.
