1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


I have found my New Beetle to be a
solid performer. Pickup is adequate and
the ride is very comfortable for a
small car. Interior room is
surprisingly spacious and the
instruments/controls are well laid out.
Power windows and mirrors have worked
without difficulty. My only problem has
been AM reception on the radio which
the dealer says is in the radio itself.

Best Features

Head room, solid feel, safety features like ABS brakes and side-impact airbags, and leather seats.

Worst Features

Cupholders need to be relocated to accomodate tall containers;outside mirrors need to be relocated so they don't block view of curbs during turns.
