After 10,000 miles with my 1999 Volkswagen Cabrio, I am flabbergasted about the comments in regards to lack of power. This is the twenty-third car I have owned and I am so impressed with the solid handling and general performance. Consumer guide just flat missed this one when it came to their discussion of this machine's alleged lack of performance. My repair, I had to replace the rear muffler! BIG DEAL! What an incredibly fun car to drive.
Comfort for a tall guy, fuel economy, and balanced performance (not lacking in any area). This car is an absolute blast to drive! Thanks VW, I hope you market these in the US again some day.
Improve the poor positioning of the cup holders. Tensile strengthing of front seat backs.
