I bought a used 2002 VW Cabrio GLX and have had it for five years - this car is awesome. I have only had it serviced at the dealer and have had no major issues with the car. I even bought the extended VW warranty - kind of feel it was a waste of money since I still haven't used it. If you buy a used one just make sure you get the service records - some VW's have no issues and some have a lot - beware of someone who hides service records - they are hiding problems. If you take care of your VW It will love you for years to come!
Power top, fun to drive, fits 4 people, great gas mileage, easy to park - super cute!
Sadly they don't make these great cars anymore - my only complaints are I wish I didn't have to put the boot cover on when the top is down and the biggest complaint is the lack of a real cup holder in the front- thank goodness they have one for the backseat I reach over and use the one in the middle.
