I was just wondering...I don't have a new beetle yet mind you...but are the engines in the front or the back like the old ones? I was just wondering cause My family wants me to check in on how safe they are as well before I decide to purchase one.
There is another thread in the Misc section discussing this topic. One person who is an EMT talked about getting a person out of a beetle that was wedged under a Semi. The driver wasn't able to get out on their own, but walked away. Very safe, pretty indestructable little cars
Check out the opther forumn, read my post about the accident i was at with a bug... It should sell you into one fast. These are most likely one of the SAFEST cars i have ever encountered. Id put my new beetle up against my friends suv's and volvos in test ratings. they really are safe, and solid cars.
