1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback

Review

Oof the greatest disappointments I have ever had with a vehicle. 1 alternator, 1 brake master cylinder, 2 power steering pumps, 2 fuel tank senders, 2 window switches, 1 radio, 1 lower radiator hose, 2 cooling fans and 1 fuel door actuator and oil consumption of 1 quart every 3000 miles which, according to VW, is within specification for a car with 22k miles on the clock. The only saving grace is that the lease is up in a few months. Kurt

Best Features

Drives wonderfully...when things aren't breaking off in your hands.

Worst Features

Assemble the things with quality parts in a quality facility with a stable QA process. The trick with retro marketing is to make the new one better...not to create an embarassment
