1997 Volkswagen Cabrio Highline 2dr Convertible

Review

Since I purchased the car in 1999 I have has the following fixes (outside of normal wear and tear): Replaced the cloth top ($1200), the antenna, parts in the gear shifter, the whole windshield washer fluid system (tubes, sprayers etc), air-conditioning refrigerator ($1200). Plastic parts are always falling off, the seat adjusters, parts of the handles, parts in the trunk, the outside molding. The car quality is poor at best. All the parts are very very expensive. It's a nice looking car, so just look at it, don't touch it or it will fall apart.

Favorite Features

Convertable! Leather seats. Fun to drive. Rollover bar.

Suggested Improvements

Less expenive parts (the tune up with spark plug wires was $400+)(9 times out of 10 have to get parts from dealer). Better quality of parts, better quality of body. This car is ALWAYS falling apart.
