2012 Volkswagen Beetle Long Term Road Test

2012 Volkswagen Beetle: What's Missing

August 02, 2012


Apparently our longterm 2012 Volkswagen Beetle is missing a few features. At least four, by my count of the blanking plates on its center console. These things drive some people crazy, but I don't really mind them.

What's your take on them -- constant reminder of options gone un-ticked, laziness on behalf of the manufacturer, or don't care one way or the other?
