1992 Volkswagen Cabriolet Wolfsburg Classic 2dr Convertible


This was initially a great, fun, fuel efficient ride. After just 35,000 miles it had a massive coolant leak problem that cost thousands to repair despite the fact that it had been beautifully maintained with regular service at a certified shop. At 45,000 miles, the transmission went. This cost several thousand more dollars to repair. After that, it was all normal service (brakes, pumps, belts, etc). It was fine, if increasingly noisy, for years after this. Despite being garaged its whole life, the exterior pieces started to fall off. Then, the engine imploded on the freeway at 75,000 miles. At this point, we junked it.

Best Features

Pick up, gas mileage, firm supportive seats, turning radius, extremely durable interior, iconic VW minimalist design

Worst Features

exterior durability, MECHANICAL RELIABILITY (see above), no cup holders, tiny trunk even for a car this size, noisy ride, drippy seals when it rained, poor factory speakers (went through several rounds of new ones during ownership), replacement VW parts longevity in general quite poor
