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!!!

Best Features

My favorite feature would have to be the heated seats. Love them!!

Worst Features

VW needs to fix the fuel problem with the 2008 Beetles.
