Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Volkswagen Beetle hatchback?
Parking sensors weren’t standard unless you went for a mid-range Beetle, so look out for any dents and scratches to the bodywork. There were some very stylish alloy wheel designs – some with plenty of chrome. Refurbishing these wheels might be trickier than normal and, therefore, more expensive.
Some of the interior plastics aren’t quite as plush as the ones in other Volkswagens and could be showing signs of wear. Also, some Beetles used light-coloured materials that can look grubby if not cleaned regularly.
