Well first off I probally jumped when purchasing a 1998 Beetle with only 85,000 miles for my wife as she has always wanted one and the kids are finally done with college and now it's our time, but I now own it. After buying it privately I started doing the research I should have done before hand. All the research has got me concerned as there seems to be a lot of problems with the 98 beetle. It has the 2.0 liter gas engine w/out Turbo and a 5 speed manual transmission. Other than regular maintance, changing the timing belt at every 60,000 miles along with the water pump what do I need to be doing to keep my wife in her new to her Beetle. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
