Maggie Peyton, the new owner of Herbie, Number 53, the free-wheelin' Volkswagen bug with a mind of its own, puts the car through its paces on the road to becoming a NASCAR competitor.
When Maggie buys Herbie from Crazy Dave, she pays $75, which was the same amount of money that Jim Douglas paid to buy him in the original The Love Bug (1968).
Monster Truck Driver:
I'm gonna wipe that Bug off my windshield!
In the scene where Maggie and the two Rays are driving home in the green pickup truck, the model of truck is a Chevy Silverado which has a column mounted gear lever. In one shot, you can see the top of the lever which means it's in the Park position.
The opening credits is a tribute to Herbie's career, with clips from all his previous movies, excluding The Wonderful World of Disney: The Love Bug (1997), leading up to where he is now in the events of the film.
