1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback


I absolutely love my bug! I've had it for almost 2 years. Never really had any problems. Except for the rear brake lights. In case other '98 owners didn't know, the brake switch was recalled on all 98 bugs. (lights stay on, etc.) my lights had been staying on and I searched it out and found out that's what it was. I'm the second owner, and the first never had any problems with it. So, I took it to my local vdub dealer and they fixed it right up. Never had any trouble since. Great car, love they way it handles. Very fun to drive.

Best Features

6-disk cd player, cruise control works great. I'm 5'8 and don't have any trouble with comfort driving for long periods of time. handles great.

Worst Features

The seat fabric, it could be a little more stain resistant.
