Close to Ideal Convertible

Vehicle2002 Volkswagen Cabrio GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThe Cabrio is a well designed
contertible. Specifically, the GLS
covers all the features that you need

There are some problems: The radio is
dated - there is no in-dash CD player
available - and I've noticed an

The car is great at its current price
point. I sure wish VW had given it the
redesign that should have happened

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