1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback
Review
VW Beetles are great cars. They are solid and fun to drive. Handling-wise the stock H rated tires crimp them a little, but upgrade to a Y, or Z rated tire and WOW she handles better then my Toyota MR2. Drivetrain-wise the gears are perfect for the power. She will scoot up to 60 in about 7-8 sec (manual 2.0). This is a heck of a fun car to drive on a windy road. It gets great gas mileage, 30-32 mpg highway.
Favorite Features
The design, power, handling, solid build materials, and oh yeah did I mention they are German!
Suggested Improvements
Give it a little more power (speed freak here). It should have a metal water pump impeller (the stock one is plastic and will fail at 95,000 - 108,000 miles)
