2014 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Diesel TDI 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Review

I love everything about my new convertible! Too bad I have had it in the dealer two times already. Just for the radio. It keeps coming on asking for Radio ID, the dealer didn't get me the ID and so I have to take it in and they say it is fixed but it still comes up as no ID. It renders itself useless for all music and phone calls. Frustrating! Maybe it is fixed this time?

2014 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Diesel TDI 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


Review

I went for a red TDI 2014 convertible! The car is very fun, and gets excellent gas mileage. Within a week I noticed several defects to interior workmanship. The worst one was the rubber liner that goes along the windows and convertible connection. The driver side is perfect. The passenger side has an extra centimeter of rubber that sticks out with much wind noise I can push the rubber piece so that it closes the gap, and the whistling goes away. A couple of other sucky items are the front passenger seat quick release and the driver seat leatherette lining. The entire passenger seat had to be replaced bc somthing broke. The manager said he mayhave to replace the seat liner. too many defects


Best Features

Gas mileage, cute fun look


Worst Features

More quality checks, and stop making excuses for wind noise when there is a visible workmanship flaw. Also, I was told that diesels need to drive at least 20 miles straight at least once a week, otherwise the filters get clogged from the soot of the diesel. The service manager said he wishes the sales ppl would tell clients this to ensure they know how to keep their car from breaking down. Service manager said they will repair it while under warranty, but after its over, it can get quite costly to repair. Also, make backseats recline slightly.
