    Classic VW Beetle / Bug Forum
    I've recently bought a '67 Beetle but as I live in London don't have a garage to keep it in. With waxoyling and regular cleaning and waxing will rust still take hold eventually?... Or should it be okay as long as I'm vigilant?

  14. Gas pump nozzle shuts off repeatedly when filling tank

    Beetle Owners Club
    We have a 2017 Beetle, 42k miles, just purchased used. We had it checked by AAA mechanic and he overlooked one relatively minor problem. The gas nozzle at pump will not stay on any more than a few seconds at a time. It keeps shutting off long before the tank is full. I understand it is...

  17. 2012 Golf Check Engine Light:

    Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Had my longtime, very reliable local shop check it out. Genuinely shocked at what they said but: The code comes up as a MAP sensor, but the mechanic said that VW had known about this problem for many years--it's a computer issue! The computer needs to be reflashed. He even showed me on his...
