Wish it was better

Vehicle: 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

you know i waited and saved up for this car and wanted to love it. but i have had more problems than i care to list. yes i had the peeling doors replaced and the power window still sounds like broken glass on every bump. i have had the front seats replaced. now the check engine light came on and stayed on. and i was told it was a compter error and was $900 to fix- but it won't effect the running of the car. i think it is terrible that VW doesn't stand behind the product. this is great if you have another car to drive while its in the shop.

Drivers Wanted it should read Suckers Welcome.The cabrio quality is terrible.I have had it in the shop at least 4 X a year for something breaking on it a valve here, an odometer there,plus a bad transmission.I have had problems with dealer ships not honoring my cars warranties.VW customer service is unhelpful.The car had a transmission failure(stuck in 2nd gear) and the company would not set up for me to have a car to use while my car was in the shop,also they seemed not to care when I expressed to them the multiple problems that I have had with car or that I would make sure to go out of my way to not recommend their company and or products.
