A VW Computer diagnostic computer is shown here connected to the engine compartment socket to download performance data. The text for this image is on the previous page which reads, When it comes to check-ups, only VW Computer Diagnosis lets your car keep a check on itself. If only cars could talk. Ours write. That's right Each VW is now built with a system of probes and sensors that monitor critical areas of the car. These sensors are connected to a special socket. When a computer (soon at your VW dealer) is plugged into it, your car sends messages about its condition. Vital service points will be checked. And the results are printed up in plain English for you to read. Chances are, you'll like what you read because of the way we make our VW's in the first place. We put on a sealed steel bottom. (Completely sealed, concealing brake and heating control lines and leaving nothing on the bottom but the bottom.) That keeps water, salt, dampness, and anything else outside, outside. We apply 13 pounds of paint, outside, inside, in spots you can't see but that corrosion can find. We have about 1100 checkers to check Super Beetle quality. Two torture tracks. Window tests. Seat tests. Engine tests, Tests for the tests. It it sounds like we overdo it, we do. So that when your new Super Beetle writes you via computer, it won't give you any back talk.
