1997 Volkswagen Cabrio 2dr Convertible

Review

From the day I drove it off the lot...lots of problems. I immediately had to replace the soft-top. Had an anti-freeze leak. The side panels have fallen off and glue will no longer keep them on! I have replaced the hubcaps so many times. The reflector light keeps falling off and I have to replace it for inspection. The driver's side interior door handle is busted. The rubber around the antenna and windows is dry-rotting. The exhaust system has rusted out and I have to replace it this week. The muffler is hanging off! I bought this car used, but come on. I thought I was buying a high quality vehicle. I would never buy VW again.

Favorite Features

Driving at night with the top down, stargazing.

Suggested Improvements

I think VW should replace their lemons. There are more things that have gone wrong I haven't mentioned.

I think you got taken by the dealer. I have the same model car that hadn't had many of those problems in 14 years. Always be wary of used car salesmen.
