Editor's Overview

Although its shape is unmistakable in any light, the latest VW to wear the Beetle name is a far cry from the original car. Powerful, fuel-efficient and very safe, the 2014 VW Beetle offers a little slice of individuality at a price that won’t break the bank. Cool retro features plus a convertible model further help the Beetle stand apart.

It is a super fun vehicle that is a good all-around car.

I really enjoy my beetle because it is sporty and fun. It has a very fast acceleration rate and gets good gas mileage. There's also very comfortable and has enough room for my family – to include my kids. And it's German engineering, so why would we ever complain about that?

- Michael G

Driving is fun again, give it a try.

Fun to drive. Very agile and responsive. Everything on the dash is conveniently located and within easy reach. The front seating is very comfortable and is adjustable. Fuel economy is good and have the stick shift option and no clutch I great. Handles great in snow and ice.

- Richard K

Beetle: city driving. Beetle buggy boogie time.

It is a great car and fun to drive. It is a very good car for city driving, especially when it comes to parallel parking. The steering wheel can occasionally be a little shaky if you accelerate too fast, but other than that, it is a great ride, especially for a small car.

- Mikayla F

Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Beetle vehicles manufactured June 13, 2013, to July 3, 2014. The glass sunroofs in the affected vehicles may break when the vehicles are operated over a hard road surface or strike a pothole.
