1998 Volkswagen Cabrio GL 2dr Convertible

Review

When the weather was nice and I could put the top down, I loved this car. The rest of the time, I was not happy with it. I got the automatic transmission because I drive in heavy traffic. Big mistake. I should have been suspicious when none of the dealers I went to for a test drive had an automatic to test drive, but I went ahead and got the automatic anyway. The car would not shift when it needed to. I had to take it in several times for this to be adjusted. Also very disappointed in the lack of power. Merging into heavy, fast traffic was a nightmare. I recently sold this car and I am very happy that I did.

Favorite Features

Adorable car, roof easy to put down, comfortable firm seats

Suggested Improvements

More power, better automatic transmission, cup holders that hold larger than 12 oz. drinks
