1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback


I've had this car since it came out in
1998. Overall the car is alot of fun to
drive, powerful and handles great. The
only problems have been electrical.The
front headlights are defective and the
power window regulators were disigned
poorly. I would definitely buy this car
again but would get manual windows and
a 1999-2001 since I think they have
less electrical problems.

Best Features

The car is noticed often, even though it's been out for 4 years. Very safe feeling and great handling, even in emergency situations.

Worst Features

Hopefully they have fixed the problems with the headlights constantly burning out and the power window regulators.
