1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback

Review

I made the unfortunate decision to buy this car based on it's design. Build quality has been horrible. I have had to replace window reg., 2 window switches, 3 O2 sensors, had an oil leak, replace a rear brake caliper at 40K miles (!?), now the air conditioning does not work. Fun to drive, terrible to own.

Favorite Features

Design is clever and fun.

Suggested Improvements

Improve build quality and warranty.
