I have had my VW Cabrio for almost 5 years now. The top had a defect in it and started to rip, VW did not want to pay for this even though it was under warrenty. This car had quite a few problems. The car would brake and lock up. (stop short) VW looked at this problem, and couldn't find anything wrong till I told them now that they have documented this, it can be quite a law suite. (well that never happened again) The leather seats in the front started cracking, so I had to put seat covers on them. The engine light comes and when VW looks at it they never find the problem. The cruise control no longer works. The car revs up when you try to stop.




Practical and fun

I have owned this car since it was new. It has been a blast to drive and very economical. Very reliable and only minimal repair & maintenance costs. After almost 9 years, the body is still tight with a smooth ride (unlike many convertibles that turn into rattle traps when they get old). Totally fun car.

I've had it 1 1/2 years. one owner neighbor put less than 10k on a year. fun...until it started jumping. it never had a tune up till last week--- 85k!!! that says a lot. I have put 2 new mufflers on--- at least I had a warrenty. the tune up was 300 bucks, so please take care of your vw, cause those parts are expensive, and shame on my neighbor for not taking care of her..
