1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GL 2dr Hatchback


Leased my New Beetle new. I've only had
a few problems (gas gauge and oxygen
sensor), but the after owning it for a
while I can tell everything was built
to the minimum standard. If you've ever
had a Honda or Toyota you would laugh
at this flimsy thing. Thankfully mine
is just the 2.0 liter, as the turbos
and diesels need a new clutch every 20-
30k miles.

Best Features

Handles well. Lots of headroom for front passengers.

Worst Features

Needs to be much more rugged
