Goodbye Volkswagen Beetle

Whether you loved the original Volkswagen Beetle or the New Beetle, we are sad to report that Volkswagen decided that 2019 will be the last year that Volkswagen New Beetle will be produced. At Goodyear Tires and Auto Repair in Santa Cruz we will continue to maintain and repair your Volkswagen, and at this point in time, we do not foresee any problems with parts availability.
