I love my Cabrio but...

1999 Volkswagen Cabrio GLS 2dr Convertible (midyear)


I love my cabrio. It is so fun to drive and so cute, but I have had to replace my cluster twice, replace my tail pipe and I'm due to replace my whole muffler system. My power top is leaking in 2 places and I have to replace the hydrolic fluid every summer or pay over 1,000$ to fix the leaks. I had a bad sensor, my check engine light is always on and my ABS light is on. It is also rusting all over despite my waxing it multiple times a year! This car is costing me almost as much in repairs as I payed for it! It is also going to be very hard to sell because who wants a convertible with a top that doesn't work with check engine lights on and incorrect mileage because the clusters were replaced?

Best Features

So fun to drive and super cute!

Worst Features

Make a more reliable car or take responsibility for putting together a junker and help us pay for the repairs. If I take good care of my car and this happens to it, I shouldn't have to pay for your mistakes! And I agree with everyone else. The cupholders are ridiculous!
