Fun Car...with lots of problems.
By ytaK on


1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


The VW Beetle is, without a doubt, a
fun car to look at and drive. I love
seeing the smiles on other peoples'
faces as I drive by.
That's not the only reason to drive a
car, though.
Just six days after buying this car, I
stalled out in a parking lot. After 3
days of arguing with the manager of my
dealership and the service department,
they finally figured out that the air
flow meter was nonfunctioning.
Both power window switches broke within
6 months.
The cap to the parking brake fell off
just a few months ago.
The A/C doesn't run cool enough, and
makes a loud squeaking noise, which no
one can seem to correct.
This poor car is falling apart piece by

Best Features

The look of the car is the biggest seller. The best part of owning a VW is all the accessories available in catalogs and on the internet. You can basically customize this car from bumper to bumper.

Worst Features

This car need cup holders! An arm rest should come standard. Fix the power window switches!
