Getting Worried

2001 Volkswagen Cabrio GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This is a fun car, an inexpensive convertible. I've owned it for almost 5 years and thank goodness I bought an extended warranty, but I'm getting worried because it expires in a few months. First the window fell out. Then the door locks went and the check engine light went on. One was covered, the other was not. They did cover the Mass Air Flow device last week for second problem. Also this week, had a bill for over $1,300 for the A/C evaporator! This should have lasted for the life of the car! The whole dash had to come out. Luckily the ext. warranty paid for $1,100 of it! My car has the same problems as some others do too... door handles, etc.

Best Features

The convertible top! Also, this car has great handling. It is the most solid convertible on the road I've ever driven.

Worst Features

Give it usable cup holders use better material on the interior door handles, and give it better reliability!
