2008 New Beetle YUCK!
By Beverly DuVall on
2008 Volkswagen New Beetle S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I have owned 6 Beetles in my lifetime and I have loved everyone from my 1968 to my 2005. I recently traded in my 2005 and upgraded to a 2008. What a shock. The appearance and features are all basically the same as all my other New Beetles, however, the gas mileage is another story. I have paid more for gas than I have in payments for this car since I purchased it. It is only averaging 200 miles per tank of gas. I have had it to the dealership for service, and they insist that there is no problem with it. My last full tank of gas I got 193 miles. I am certain that there is a problem with the 2008 Beetle fuel system. I am not happy with the 08 VW. YUCK!!!
My favorite feature would have to be the heated seats. Love them!!
VW needs to fix the fuel problem with the 2008 Beetles.
