1998 VW New Beetle. 2.0 w/118,000. Automatic. Runs and drives good. Car gets good gas mileage and is fun to drive.
Car runs and drives good. Transmission shifts as it should. Brakes are good. Tires are also in good shape. No engine lights on dash. Recent repairs have been:
(2) oxygen sensors, MAF sensor, motor mounts, and air filter. The AC has a freon leak. You can charge it and it gets real cold but only lasts about a week. The only other thing is the passenger side window motor is bad. Window is stuck in the up position.
OK condition. Paint is still pretty shiny but there are some paint chips. Surface rust has started on drivers side door but hasnt came through paint yet. Little surface rust on door pillars. Has some moderate hail damage. Normal small dings and scratches for a car this old. Has headlight and tailight covers that can come off. Recently has windows tinted.
Interior is fairly clean. Pictures really speak for themselves only issue i can think of is the headliner was starting to sag down so i pinned it up with red thumbtacks.
Car is not perfect but would be a good daily driver or a nice little second car to keep the miles down on the other one. Any questions dont hesitate to ask. Thanks for looking

World's Most Efficient Car Impresses, Not Without Compromises
Wed, 16 Apr 2014 18:00:00 EST
Among our many duties at the recent Geneva Motor Show, we were offered a pretty exclusive drive in the new Volkswagen XL1 hyper-efficient plug-in diesel hybrid. There is so much that is interesting about a car like this reaching production from a major automaker that it's tough to know where to begin.
First off, you should know that - at least for this generation - there is absolutely no chance in Albuquerque that this "1-liter vehicle" (i.e. a vehicle that can burn just one liter of fuel to travel 100 kilometers, or 62.1 miles) will ever make it into the hands of North American customers. We, too, were having trouble imagining an XL1 in typical American traffic, surrounded by comparatively massive pickups and SUVs. The driving experience had us recalling a couple of weeks in 1999 when we drove the then-revolutionary Honda Insight hybrid on US roads. We keenly remember the feeling of being very small and vulnerable, even as we felt proudly green in our 61-mpg Tochigi pod. Thing is, the Volkswagen is smaller still, and nearly as light despite its more complex drivetrain and safety features.
Volkswagen is in New York this week showing off its new Jetta and Golf TDI SportWagen concept. But in less than a week, the German automaker will be off to China for the Beijing Motor Show, where it will showcase the revised Touareg you see here.

A subtle update on the Touareg that's been on the market in its current form for four years now, the facelifted model features reworked styling front and rear, an updated interior and a host of new technologies to keep it current in the highly competitive SUV market. Among those new features are larger bi-xenon headlights, coasting function, Google Maps integration and a post-collision braking system designed to prevent a second crash.
VW will offer the new Touareg with a variety of engines around the world, but in North America it'll carry over the same six-cylinder powertrain options as the outgoing model: a 3.6-liter V6 with 280 horsepower, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 with 240 hp (though torque isn't listed, we'd expect around 406 pound-feet, same as last year) and a hybrid that marries a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 to an electric motor that combine to deliver 380 hp.
Michael Andretti and Volkswagen have both been involved in Global Rallycross for a couple of years, but not together. Andretti Motorsports Marketing organized the final round of the 2012 GRC series in Las Vegas, and there were rumors then that Andretti was going to get in. Around the same time there were news reports that Volkswagen was preparing a 600-hp Polo Mk5 to race in the SuperCar class; the photo above is racer Anton Marklund in his privateer Marklund Motorsports Polo at the 2013 X-Games round in Los Angeles.
Now it's official: Andretti Autosport will campaign the 2014 GRC season with VWs. That's all that's been said for now, Andretti being busy at the moment launching four entries for IndyCar, two for Indy Lights and two for Pro Mazda. We have a feeling we'll be seeing the MkVII Golf involved, but the cars and the driver lineup will be presented at the Chicago Auto Show on February 6.
