Looking to buy but some questions

Postby ceanne » Thu Feb 11, 2016 10:11 am

Hi all,

I am interested in buying a bettle but would like it as a daily driver. If it is a good running car with no mechanical issues, are there any issues with weather (snow, rain) or other that may make this difficult? Thanks

my daughter drove her 73 super beetle for 6 years everyday as a daily driver.

it all depends on what you can do mechanically. there will be times you will have to do some work on it on the road, it is a 30 - 40 year old car. look for rust issues. usually the battery tray under the rear seat, the area behind the rear windows if its a 71 or newer. these are the major spots, but everything can be worked on.
