1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

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!?


Best Features

5-speed is fun but I guess any 5-speed would be.


Worst Features

Go back to the same engineering as in' 69.

Review

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!


Best Features

fun to drive, but like most good looking girls it wa difficult to live with
