Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Volkswagen Beetle Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 012007

Beetle GLS 2.0L

  • Manual transmission
  • 45,000 miles


As someone who keeps their cars as close to showroom as possible, I find these types of defects and poor quality extremely annoying. People buy Beetles for their looks, but their looks quickly go downhill, as dash boards get sticky and scratch easily, rubber peels, and VW EMBLEMS?! fall off because they are only glued on with a ring of cheap glue? Once they get a weak spot the wind catches them and rips them off. I thought some one was stealing them until the security guard said his wife had the same issue. CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!!!!!

Beetle GLS 4.2L (?)

  • Manual transmission
  • 80,000 miles

The VW sticker in the center of the tires constantly falls off. This wouldn't be so bad if you didn't see the sticky mess that is supposed to hold the VW sticker on. And, you can't just purchase a have to get the whole piece at like $20 per tire! After NUMEROUS replacements, we gave up......kind of like the underpinning that falls off Beetles repeatedly b/c they are so low to the ground. Our own VW dealer told us not to replace it!
