2010 Volkswagen Beetle ProblemsOdor 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.
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.
One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

2010 Volkswagen Beetle RecallsDo Not Meet Federal Crash Standards
The Federal government continually reviews and updates crash safety standards. The standards were updated on September 1, 2010. Twenty-seven Beetles built between September 1st and 22nd, 2010 do not meet the new standards. These vehicles will be replaced with a comparable vehicle that was produced prior to September 1, 2010. The recall is scheduled to begin prior to February 1, 2011.
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.
