1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback


I've had nothing but problems since the day I bought this car. I had to eplace the battery three times. It get's 17mpg - which makes it a gas guzzler. The fuses actually burst into flames in the engine! My car always jerks when I take my foot of the gas. Every time I need to get the car serviced, I have to take to the dealer because they have the special tool needed to fix it. Garage mechanics won't touch the Bug, it's a waste of time to them, and they lose money from it. I'm waiting for the day the engine falls out of the car! I will never buy another VW again.

Best Features

The only thing I like about this car, is that it maneuvers well in the snow, but that is probably from the $150 tires I put on it!

Worst Features

Hire better engineers.
