Cut My Losses
By Crazy for Buying on
1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback
I bought a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle for my daughter and the car was OK for 50,000 miles. Then it started having major repair bills. It overheated and cost $1,200 to replace the heads, after which it still did not work right. New brakes cost $300. We had to replace three headlights at $45 each. The motor kept giving her trouble. We spend another $1,200 on it and then it died. We put in a different motor had all kinds electrical problems. Eventually the car caught on fire and was totaled. Don't buy this car unless you want a money pit.
It is cute to look at, but high maintenence.
the interior is not comfortable and the cup holders are in a terrible location.
