1998 Volkswagen New Beetle 2dr Hatchback


I think the bug is the ULTIMATE road
trip car in that it's just a blast to
drive... it has its quirks, but so do
all cars.. and I prefer to see these
"quirks" as "character"... It's a great
car for med-long commutes as well as
sporting arond town.. as aforementioned,
it's also done a few long hauls with me
with no major problems. it's a car that
you instantly make a part of the
family... i would recommend it to anyone
who's not in dire need of tons of trunk
space, but loves an airy, roomy, comfy,
super fun car... i'd definitely also
consider doing some upgrades, too (i.e.
performance chip, exhaus improvement, etc.)

Best Features

the stereo, solid feel, handling, manual trans, mileage, comfort, fresh-ness!

Worst Features

no arm rest in 98! also too many blind spots - which can be a bit tricky sometimes... back hatch makes a weird noise but i's not too bad. also could use a lot more kick.
