Q: I have a VW bug, other than my voltage (needs to be 12 V Negative ground ) is there anything else I should be concerned about before purchasing one of your fine radios?

A: Yes, Liquid damage issues have been becoming more apparent recently, Here are photos taken of one of our radios that exhibit sigificant liquid damage, this has become a large issue with VW bugs and radios installed in these cars. Due to the position of the radio behind the dash and the age of the cars, these leaks can easily occur, please check your vw very very carefully behind the dash and install a rain guard to protect your radio behind the dash. Also check the seals and other areas around where the radio is installed in for liquid damage. Please email or call us for questions about this issue (support@retrosoundusa.com / 888-325-1555 ).
