1999 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback


Bought the car used from a VW dealership, said it had been checked out and was in great condition. 6 months later came in for extensive engine repairs, have been back to the service department at least 4 times a year since then for random electrical failures. Check engine light is on at least once a month for no reason, I go in and pay $90 for them to turn it off. Have spent over half of what I paid for the car in repairs and that is with taking it to cheaper garages instead of paying the ridiculous prices at the dealership. It is very cute and fun to drive but extremely poor quality and the most unreliable car I've ever driven. Do not make the same mistake!

Best Features

Blue dash lights, heated leather seats, fun to drive

Worst Features

VW needs to step up their quality and stand by their work. Service departments unhelpful and overpriced by hundreds.
