After falling in love with this
convertible in the '80s, I dreamed of
owning one. That dream has turned
into a nightmare. Within the first 5
months, I had the Cabrio in and out
of the dealership with a defective part
that kept causing the car not to start.
Then one morning in
bumper-to-bumper traffic a wheel
came off. This could have caused
death or serious injury if I had been
driving the speed limit. Now the
transmission has just caused me to
be stranded and returned to the
dealership. These problems have all
happened under 24K miles. The
warranty runs out very soon, and I am
debating on keeping this problem.
It is a convertible!
Overhaul the entire car, or maybe
that's what VW is doing since they
have discontinued the 2002
