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

Review

My wife's Cabrio, bought new in Jan. 2000 has been basically a good car. It is reasonably peppy and fun to drive. Recently, the automatic transmission began holding upshifts into overdrive. The dealer said the computer lost its baseline settings and although the car only had 19746 miles, VW would not cover it under warranty. Even though the 24 month warranty was past, the mileage was way under 24K. I contend that this should not be happening and if VW won't back it now, I have little hope of them doing the right thing later on. This combined with constant oxygen sensor problems on a '99 Jetta has made me loose faith in VW.

Favorite Features

Convertible top, room for 3 comfortably and reasonable trunk for a convertible.

Suggested Improvements

VW needs to stand behind their product better, especially the electrical components.
