1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback

Review

You can spend millions if not billions on quirky,Mtv like commercials, but you can't build a quality car?I have to say it is by far the worse car I have ever owned.This is coming from a guy who has owned three Saab 900's.Why is this? Well,Everything falls apart,everything from the side mirrors to the shift knob, to the gas door, to the window switches, to the melted fuses to the terrible radio(hasn't worked in a year)

Favorite Features

My favorite thing about this car is it is not an Audi, it would have burnt down on the side of the road from an electrical fire years ago. Trading it in on a used Volvo.

Suggested Improvements

Dump this model, you blew it in the '70s and you're blowing it now.Sales are down 25%,wake up and smell the oil. Reallocate that advertising budget to get back to making the People's Car(Volkswagen).Try this new slogan:"Engineers Wanted"
