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.
