2009 Volkswagen Beetle Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Ignition Component/Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Failure

Due to an ignition component and/or engine coolant temperature sensor failure, the Check Engine Light may illuminate. Replacement of the failed component will be necessary to correct this concern.

One or Both Head Lights May Not Work

One or both head lights may not work due to premature head light bulb burnout and/or bulb harness failure. Care should be taken to inspect the head light harness connector for damage when replacing bulbs. Damaged connectors should be replaced.

Odor from HVAC vents

A musty odor may be noted from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system after sitting for two hours or more due to condensation in the heater case. Our technicians tell us that a cleaner is available for the heater case and the drain system should be checked for debris.

Volkswagen Recalls Certain 2006–2010 Models Due to a Possible Fuel Leak

Volkswagen is recalling certain 2007–2009 Jetta, Jetta Sportwagon, Golf, and Rabbit, as well as 2006–2010 Beetle and Beetle Convertible vehicles equipped with a 2.5L gasoline engine due to a possibly damaged fuel supply line. Under hood fasteners may chafe against the fuel supply line, resulting in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Dealers will perform vehicle-appropriate inspections and repairs in order to protect the fuel supply line from chafing damage.

2009 Volkswagen Beetle Reviews

Purchased VW Beetle for highway miles commute. Two new AC units under previously purchased warranty (but one dealer said he didn't honor warranty). In 5 times for headlight repair/replacement that cost me time and money. Now clicking on left side of engine block after spark plugs replaced. Have 90,000 miles and otherwise rides great even in snow. Michelin tires are the best for this sweet car
I love my little Beetle. She is perfect for me. I've never had a bit of trouble with her. She is by far the best car I've ever had.
