Volkswagen has issued a recall of 27 new Volkswagen Beetles from the 2010 model year because the cars do not meet crash protection standards. These cars are fresh off the line, built between September 1st and September 22th of last year. I’m amazed that Volkswagen does not use the usual inflation of calling cars made at the end of last year 2011 models.
It sounds like Volkswagen will offer these Beetle owners another car. So if you have not been in an accident and risked your life in this car, you are getting a pretty good deal. At least I think that is what the deal is. If you think you are one of those 27 people (and, really, what are the odds?), call call Volkswagen at 800-822-8987.
