one tough beetle!
By roman_capps on
1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback
At first the beetle looks girly and cheap. girly to some, but cheap only in cosmetics. for the 13 years of it's life it has been ragged out by a teenage girl and my father. Both have been over revved before they change gears. my father changes gears at 9000 or 90000 revolutions (can't remember) and it sends chills up my spine when he goes up hills. Not one transmission replacement to me that is amazing it sits at 195k miles. Rockwell is a great company, only in mechanical. The cosmetics on this car are absolutely cheap and plastic the entire door panel has been torn off. It's true how Volkswagen has been given to the beetle it is truly the people's car.
The body is timeless especially the convertibles, great mechanical work, built in Mexico
Better cosmetics I wish Volkswagen would come out with a luxury beetle.
