2002 Volkswagen Cabrio GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The Cabrio is a well designed contertible. Specifically, the GLS covers all the features that you need to get the most use out of your convertible (see below). There are some problems: The radio is dated - there is no in-dash CD player available - and I've noticed an occasional buzz that doesn't appear to be speaker related. The lock system has given me troubles in the city. The key- fob is designed terribly, it's easy to set off the alarm. You can feel the frame flex in a way that a car shouldn't. The car is great at its current price point. I sure wish VW had given it the redesign that should have happened years ago. Now it looks like the Bug will replace it as VW's Cabrio.

Favorite Features

Great heater for those almost-too-cold- but-not-quite days; Heated seats; fast, easy top; good road feel even in adverse weather and high speeds.

Suggested Improvements

Better lock/alarm system; better audio; better engine choices (how about the 1.8T?!). Guess we'll have to wait for the Bug...
