It's horrible!!
By lucy99 on


1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDi 2dr Hatchback


Just like every other Beetle owner
i've talked to, I have had nothing but
problems with this car. Besides the
horrible designs on the inside (cd
changer in the trunk, cup holders
unreachable, giant blind spots in
every corner), i find new problems
every day. After slightly over 3
years, we had to buy a new engine and
there's been even more problems since
we got it. There has been too many
recalled parts to even count. The
dealers are horrible and have broken
more stuff than they have fixed. I
just traded in this timebomb for a
reliable toyota and will never buy
another VW.

Best Features

good gas mileage, even though it's about 10mpg less than what it should be.

Worst Features

VW needs to make reliability a much higher priority if they want to keep customers.
