Volkswagen is holding strong to the notion of a next-generation New Beetle.  Would that make it the Newer Beetle?  Or the Newer New Beetle? Or New Beetle MK2?  Whichever, VW must first take care of a potentially nasty issue with a special edition of the current New Beetle.

Volkswagen used an incorrect adhesive on the Triple White edition of their retro-mobile, which could lead to the roof spoiler becoming detached.  While this may only be a problem for New Beetle owners in terms of aesthetics, drivers abaft of their car could face serious danger.  Typically, we drivers fail to anticipate flying spoilers.  
Only 510 New Beetle’s are affected.  Feel free to contact your dealer if you think you’re one of them.
