1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


People think this car has nothing to offer on the outside, but all you have to do is take it for a drive and see just how much headroom you have that you won't find in other cars. Plus what is truly amazing is just how quite and and deceptively fast this car feels. You'll find yourself driving down the highway thinking you are going 70mph when in actuality you are going around 90 or more. And when it comes to a quiet ride, it is amazing. Its nice riding and quick responsive when turning or switch lanes. This car handles just like a little sports car and as such i find myself driving it that way. Take it for a test drive, you will not be disappointed at all.

Best Features

The solid crispness you feel when shutting the doors, unlike other cars whose doors feel cheap and plastic The responsiveness going into corners is great and the car has great pep above 60mph. The car drives likes a sports car and handles very smoothly through all kinds of traffic.

Worst Features

Cup holders need to be better positioned to handle taller beverages The defrost needs an upgrade especially when its muggy outside and the condensation gets on the inside of the windshield
