1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback


The new Beetle is the best piece of design to hit the road in many years. It has good build quality, great handling, but unfortunarely a despicable dealer network. This is my 5th "Golf" platform VW. And each time I swear I'll never buy another because of the dealers.

Best Features

The great looks, feel, low gearing gives good response, and great highway pick-up. This car has great headroom and comfortable seats. It also has an unbelievable amount of cargo capacity considering the design.

Worst Features

The low gearing and gas milage issue that I have a problem with has been addressed in the new 5 cyl model.
