Volkswagen Beetle FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Beetle here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Diesel to die for

    I'M NOT a huge fan of the Beetle. It is not the most practical model available, and the Golf is a much better choice. But I am a fan of the VW diesel. The ones I've driven have had impressive performance and economy and I would happily own one. I haven't heard of any significant problems with the engine. As far as the paint goes, it comes down to the way you look after it. Remove stains caused by bugs and bird droppings before they take hold, and wax and polish it at least once a year. Reds seem to fade more than other colours and some metallics can fade. White generally holds up, but is boring.

  • Beetle juice

    I assume you are currently using lead replacement petrol, which is PULP with an additive such as Valvemaster. The easiest option for you is to use PULP, which is 96 octane, and add Valvemaster yourself, which is available from most servos.

  • Stylish car for $15k?

    With your budget you would be looking at a 2010/2011 VW Beetle, which had a regular automatic transmission and not the troublesome DSG that was fitted in later models. That’s a big tick for the Beetle. The Citroen C3 is a decent car, but an orphan in the sense that there weren’t many sold and you won’t find a dealer on every corner. As for the BMW, they’re too expensive to service and repair if you use a dealer, and they have too many niggling issues that spoil the great driving experience. The Subaru Impreza is well worth looking at, but my pick of that bunch would be the Volvo C30.
