1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


You can spend millions if not billions
on quirky,Mtv like commercials, but you
can't build a quality car?I have to say
it is by far the worse car I have ever
owned.This is coming from a guy who has
owned three Saab 900's.Why is this?
Well,Everything falls apart,everything
from the side mirrors to the shift
knob, to the gas door, to the window
switches, to the melted fuses to the
terrible radio(hasn't worked in a year)

Best Features

My favorite thing about this car is it is not an Audi, it would have burnt down on the side of the road from an electrical fire years ago. Trading it in on a used Volvo.

Worst Features

Dump this model, you blew it in the '70s and you're blowing it now.Sales are down 25%,wake up and smell the oil. Reallocate that advertising budget to get back to making the People's Car(Volkswagen).Try this new slogan:"Engineers Wanted"
