1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLX 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


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!


Favorite Features

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!?


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

Go back to the same engineering as in' 69.
