Mismatch?

Maybe the weight police are on to something.

Not the NEW bug. It's basically a Golf/Jetta FWD chassis with a different body shell.

But that's OK - it's within its GCWR. Don't pay any attention to any of those other silly numbers like GAWR or GVWR.....

With the hitch dragging on the ground, no need for auxiliary braking. Steering might be a little light.

It would be great on toll roads where they count axles on the ground.
