pure waste of money

1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback


Worst excuse for a car I have ever
seen. Interior is cheap and everything
breaks (glovebox latch, power window
buttons, etc) plus the seats fade
really quickly. On the mechanical
side, this car is a nightmare. Power
window on drivers side went out, and
the window actually shattered inside
the door panel. Took a month to get a
new regulator in. Engine makes
popping noises that the dealer can't
figure out how to remedy. Check
engine light keeps coming on. Trunk
button on inside of car does not
actually release the trunk latch. I
guess that will fully break pretty
soon. Also, the interior of the car
is full of rattles and squeaks.
