1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback

Review

This car started out as a gem. The problem experienced are the same as most bug owners( window switch, window track, mirror knob, dead battery, trim coming off, abnormal tire wear, The worst being it burns oil and intermittantly runs hot. The dealers cant seem to correct the the last two issues.

Best Features

The side airbags, it rides well, auto locking doors, nice paint, many standard feature found in more expensive cars.

Worst Features

I dont think that VW ever owned up to all the issues with the new beetles. Most owners like myself found the car to be sub par. The look and the ride are great but the long time quality factors are not present.
