1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback


Whats this headlight BS? I change my own! The
bulbs cost between 8 - 15. And I burned out 3 in
the years I've had the car.
Yes, I know plenty of people with VW products.
Some are nightmares, only made worse by
incredibly poor dealer service.
Even so, another New Beetle is a possiblity for me.
The car has some great features, and the interior is
comfortable, and capable of carrying quite a bit.
Even with a Kayak on top I get over 30mpg. Try to
do that in an SUV.
The car is a personal expression. But be forewarned
there are some genetic throwbacks out there who
have adverse reactions to the little bug...screw
Have fun, drive safe and alert...

Best Features

The style..love retro.

Worst Features

Dealer Service Quality. Part Supplier quality control, better warranty. Make people drive without fear of breaking down and being stranded!
