1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


At first I loved my bug, and now I still love the way it looks. I haven't had any major mechanical problems, but my headlights went out and I took it to Tires Plus and they had the hardest time trying to put new headlights in and didn't get them fixed the first time so I had to go twice. I also have never had all of my break lights work, even 10 minutes after they are replaced. The trunk release has not worked since I bought it. And I can't go over 60 without it reving to 3,000 rpm. So gas milage isn't what you would expect. The worst thing is the cost of maintenance! But after a year and a half I am still attached, that must say something.

Best Features

I just love the way it looks! I get looks every time I am driving it. All my friends are jealous!

Worst Features

Make it easier to get to the headlights! Do something about the high reving at low speeds. A standard CD player would be nice.
