2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Manual Lights

July 26, 2012


Oh no, I had to turn the lights on and off in the 2012 VW Beetle by hand!

But seriously, our Beetle has this very simple dial that turns the lights on and off. And when you forget and try to exit the car with the lights still on, it plays a steady musical note, just like in cars from the 1990s. In this modern world of automatic lights, it is very easy to forget, so the chime is appreciated.
