NEVER BUY A VW!

Review

I've had such a bad experience with VW. I went to all the VWs in my area and can't believe the poor service that I have been getting. I LOVE my car, however it is not worth the price of dealing with their service department (s). Even after speaking to the manager I haven't been helped. If you would like more detail, just email me.

Review

This is a really fun car, but the problems I've experienced are definitely not worth its fun. Numerous problems with the electrical system-- dash lights come on for no reason, I have to restart the car to get the ac to come on, and it doesn't always like to start on the first try. It has terrible acceleration, and can be uncomfortable on long trips, but it is a fun beach car.

Review

This car is a great! It is the only sporty convertible I could find that handles well in the snow. The electric top is convenient in that I do not worry about what is inside that someone might take. Another feature I looked for was enough space to pick someone up at the airport and have their luggage and my dog fit at the same time. The trunk is much bigger than the Miata or the BMW which were my other choices. The Cabrio is also much quieter than the others due to the multi-layered top. It is a lot of fun at a fair price

Review

Overall, the car is great, however, I've only had it for about a year and a half and have already had to put it in the shop a few times for minor problems (the radio volume did not go to soft.) If you're looking for a cute convertible that's good in the winter as well as the summer, the cabrio's a good choice

Review

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.

Loving my Cabrio

Review

This car is pure fun combined with VW reliability. The electric top allows me to put the top up or down at a stop light allowing incredible flexibility. I've also driven it on slippery roads up to ski. It performed without any trouble with only ugraded radials on the front. The heated seats are also a welcome treat on cold mornings.
