Editor's Overview

The 2015 Volkswagen Beetle grants access to one of the world's most iconic vehicles at a low entry price. Available as a 2-door coupe with a rear hatch or an open-air convertible, the Beetle offers a surprising selection of powertrains, including diesel models. The latest version is larger than past Beetle models and current rivals like the Mini Cooper.

Cool car with scary problems.

At first everything was fine but now for some reason it seems as though my drivers side door does not lock. It sounds like it does, but you can walk up and open the door without the key. My car also has stalled while driving. It is an automatic. I do not know why it is doing this.

Beautiful blue beetle with chrome tires.

I love that it is a VW beetle and that is its a automatic and that it has cruise control. I love the color it's a light blue green I get lots of complements on the color. My cup holder got damaged and I can't find out how to fix it that the only problem I have with it.

- Natasha M

How tiny and fast it goes.

Chic, nice, and comfy. I really enjoy my tiny car. I don't really have any complaints about it. It is fantastic as it is. It is pretty much the same as any other tiny car as far as any sort of issue. It would have nothing to do with the build. It is a great car!

Report Receipt Date:
Oct 19, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V658000
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.
Consequence:
Vehicle occupants could be injured by falling glass. A sunroof break during vehicle operation also increases the risk of driver distraction and a resulting vehicle crash.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the sunroof, free of charge. The recall began on December 15, 2015. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 60B9.
Fuel System, Gasoline > Fuel Injection System > Fuel Rail Jan 22, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Jan 22, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V028000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Jetta vehicles manufactured March 28, 2014, to November 24, 2014, 2014-2015 Passat vehicles manufactured April 7, 2014, to November 18, 2014, 2015 Golf and GTI vehicles manufactured July 1, 2014, to November 20, 2014, and 2014-2015 Beetle and Beetle Convertible vehicles manufactured March 31, 2014, to November 27, 2014. A sealing cap at the fuel rail may fail, allowing fuel to leak into the engine compartment.
Consequence:
A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, can result in a vehicle fire.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel rails with new parts, free of charge. The recall began February 6, 2015. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 24BL. Note: This recall expands and supersedes recall 14V-809 (Volkswagen recall number 24Bi) and only affects vehicles not previously repaired under that campaign.
Service Brakes, Hydraulic > Power Assist > Vacuum Oct 25, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 25, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V705000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Jetta, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Passat, Golf and Golf SportWagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the camshaft lobe that drives the brake vacuum pump may shear off, resulting in a loss of brake assist.
Consequence:
If the camshaft lobe shears off there would be a loss of brake assist, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Volkswagen dealer will update the engine control module (ECM) software. The recall began March 2016. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 23R1.
