2009 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5L 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)

Review

My wife and I purchased our 2009 VW beetle with anticipation of giving this car to our granddaughter when she turnes 16 in 2012. However a few problems changed our mind of giving this car to a begining driver. Changing Headlamp is very involved and not recommened for car owner. The procedure for this process is 8 pages long. Ground clearance is so close to the ground that 3 inches of snow ripped front skid plate from the car. The skid plate is made from very thin plastic and is not much use. I also struck a small wooden object approx. 3 inches tall while moving less than 2 mph. while parking the car along side of the road. this knocked a hole in my transmition.

Favorite Features

Runs great, fun to drive, plenty of power for this car.

Suggested Improvements

need to reduce blind spots, improve vision. Improve ground clearance and under- chassis protection. The design of the headlamp assembly is a must.
