Does the 1971 volkswagen beetle gives problems with the motor temp? Of course I live in a tropical country.

Asked by Nov 26, 2007 at 05:44 PM about the 1971 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: General

I want to know if this car gives problems with the temperature in the motor because it doesn;t have radiator. I live in the Dominican Republic and is very hot all year long. So at the momento someone decide to buy a car, temp is an issue we can't forget. Thanks.

I have never heard of any problems with overheating of the VW in a tropical temp. You see a lot of older Beetles in pictures of countries like Brazil, Peru, etc., so I would think you'd be fine in the DR.
