1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback

Review

I've owned two older Beetles (63-69)and a 91 Jetta. As you can see I like VW's. I fell in love with the New Beetle's looks and overlooked its flaws. After 66k miles I have to admit I made a huge and costly mistake. Problems include 2 blown headlights, both power window switches broken, passenger power window won't go up, uses alot of oil, dead battery while driving, replace starter and moisture in oil. I've found out since that these are normal problems for New Beetle owners. During all of this VW won't do anything!

A total re-think on design or manufacture. No new vehicle should have this many problems. The consumer should be able to change the headlight bulbs - not make a service appointment and be charged $80 for 2 bulbs. VW needs to care about it's owners.
