Review of the 1999 Volkswagen New Beetle

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    It's cute. It's quirky. It's retro. It's an image car we can all afford.

  • Cons

    It's a fancy-schmancy Golf, which means it's not the same as the original. Good or bad? You decide.

  • What's New for 1999

    A high-performance turbo model debuts this year. A small spoiler over the rear window is the only exterior telltale that the Bug next to you has the 150-horsepower 1.8-liter turbocharged inline four from the larger Passat sedan under the hood.

So disappointed

Vehicle: 1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback

This car was bought with 32,000 miles. It now has 56,000. Let me put it this way, I will never buy a VW again. I hope this will help some poor soul from making a $5000 dollar mistake. That was $5,000 dollars in repairs. Too many to list. Worst was mass air flow sensor and fuel injectors. Who ever heard of replacing fuel injectors!?

Vehicle: 1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback

The reliablity of this model is far below expectations, requiring over $5,000 of repairs in the past 4 years especially exhaust windows and amenities and gear shift/gear train. Stay away from this lemon!
