1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback


I only had this car for 6 years, 2 of which it was only driven about once a month by my parents because I lived out of the country. Despite this, it had 1000s of dollars worth of repairs needed every year. One month after purchase it needed $1000 worth of repairs. The final straw came yesterday when they told me I needed $5000 worth of repairs to ABS system, some fuel thing, etc. I took it directly to Toyota and traded it in.

Best Features

It's cute and no one could believe it was 11 years old.

Worst Features

Arm rest! Also, the electric parts for the fuel door broke twice and was $400 each time.
