1997 Volkswagen Cabrio Highline 2dr Convertible


We paid $5500 for our car. It needs tires and the front bumper and grille has stone wear on it, but we'll tackle it later. Fun to drive, plenty of room for 4 adults or 2 adults and 2 baby seats. Frugal and easy to maintain. A wonderful update to our 1984 Rabbit Convertible. I would recommend this convertible as it was easy to incorporate into our lives. Both fun and sensible and durable. My previous '84 Convertible had close to 200K miles when I sold it and I expect to see the same durability in this car. The steel encased trunk, added safety features (ABS, rollbar, airbags), cloth top, and leather interior are very nice updates! Contact me if have any quest

Best Features

Steel trunk cloth top eager engine and smooth shifter comfortable suspension excellent factory premium stereo COLD air conditioning comfortable interior with plenty of space

Worst Features

Keyless entry (found on later models) 6 speed transmission (later models) Rear disc brakes (later models) Little else!
