1998 Volkswagen New Beetle TDi 2dr Hatchback


Costly repairs with the dealers. Much easier to buy parts online and use the neighbor to assist with repairs. Replaced injection pump x2, timing belt q60K, now need new drivers seat.

Best Features

handles well in all weather conditions, fun to drive when the check engine light isnt on

Worst Features

raise it 2", use a metal dipstick tube so it can be plugged in, chip them up in the factory, use 1oz 2 cycle oil per gal of diesel, have replacable lenses for the fog lights
