Plot holes 

At the end of the The Love Bug, Jim Douglas married Carole Bennett; however, in this film, Douglas is apparently single, given his romantic interest in Dianne Darcy. This issue is never addressed in the film, and no mention of Carol or Douglas being married is ever made.

Revealing mistakes 

At the first qualifying round when Herbie is pivoting to watch the Lancia pull up to the finish line, his wheels don't roll like they're supposed to, indicating that he's on a turning platform.

During the final race, we see Herbie from the perspective of Bruno von Stickle's side mirror, but the 53 on the hood and the license plate read the right way instead of reversed, so it's obviously an optical.
