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.

Introduced in 1998, the New Beetle was a worthy successor to the original Beetle. Unfortunately, sales declined during the last few years, and Volkswagen management decided to discontinue production.  

But just because Volkswagen decided to discontinue New Beetle does not mean you should not own one.  There are plenty of pre-owned vehicles available for purchase. Should you decide to buy one, we highly recommend a comprehensive Volkswagen pre-purchase inspection. Goodyear Tires and Auto Repair on Water Street can inspect the vehicle BEFORE you complete the purchase, and provide you with a detailed report of the state of the vehicle.

So whether you own a New Beetle now, or decide to purchase one in the years to come, you can count on Goodyear to continue to provide Santa Cruz Volkswagen Beetle service and repair well into the future.
