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.

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.

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
