City_Gal_1966 fantastic ride November 22, 2017 Beetle Coupe
Overall Score
smooth ride, comfortable, up to date and very slick. takes turns very well and has excellent rear view windows and the side windows also. i don't prefer cams for viewing behind the car but I do like the idea that the blind spots are eliminated so I might consider getting that installed for it because I don't see it as a normal basic feature which actually should be since at least there is an option to use it or not to use it

Manufacturer Recall Number:
37M2
Units Affected:
117,306
Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
Issue: On certain vehicles, a build-up of silicate on the shift lever switch could cause the transmission to detect that it is in the Park position when it isn't. This could allow the ignition key to be removed when the transmission is not in the Park position. If the parking brake is not applied, this could allow the car to roll away. Safety Risk: If the transmission position is not displayed correctly, a user may not know that the vehicle is not in the PARK position. If the parking brake is not applied, this could create a risk of a vehicle roll-away and increase the risk of a crash. Corrective Actions: The company will notify owners by mail. Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to have a new shift lever micro switch and control unit installed.

Issue: On certain vehicles, the brake warning light does not turn on when the electronic brake force distribution system malfunctions. This could cause a driver to be unaware of a problem with the brake system. Safety Risk: A driver that is not aware of a problem with the brake system could lose control of the vehicle during emergency braking. This could cause an increased risk of a crash. Corrective Actions: The company will notify owners by mail. Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to update the instrument cluster software.

On certain vehicles, a problem with the brake system may cause gas bubbles to form in the brake fluid. This could cause a soft brake pedal feel and a reduction in brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will bleed the front or rear brakes as necessary. Note: In the interim, owners are advised to stop driving their vehicle until the defect has been repaired. Affected owners should call Volkswagen's Roadside Assistance number at 1-800-411-6688.

Manufacturer Recall Number:
42G8
Units Affected:
87,887
Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
On certain vehicles, if the rear axle trailing arms are damaged in a rear or side-rear impact crash and a repair facility does not correctly diagnose or replace damaged rear axle components, rear trailing arm durability could be reduced, which could result in a sudden fracture of the trailing arm. This could lead to a loss of vehicle control, which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will install a sheet metal inlay on both rear axle trailing arms. The inlay is designed to help prevent the sudden loss of vehicle control should a rear axle trailing arm fracture occur if undiagnosed/unrepaired damage exists from a previous rear or side-rear impact/crash.

Manufacturer Recall Number:
Units Affected:

Notification Type:
Safety TC
Certain vehicles with leather sport seats may be equipped with an incorrectly coded Passenger Occupant Detection System Control Module in the front passenger location. If the seat gets wet, the control module may not properly detect a child car seat secured on the front passenger seat, and the front passenger airbag will not be deactivated as expected. In this case, the airbag light will remain off indicating that the passenger airbag is active. If, despite safety warnings and provincial regulations, a child was placed in a child car seat secured in the passenger front position, the active airbag could deploy in a crash causing potential injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the affected modules.
