I'm the third owner with 125k right now. Oil pressure switch gives me a fit sometimes, but she starts every time and still gets looks. My wife loves the little car, and it's definitely a unique one, the last year of the MKI body style!
Easy to work on, quiet enough with the top down, easy to operate top, fairly rare to see with the full clipper kit on.
No cup holders of course, and the top needs to be adjusted..but what do you expect, it's a 17 yr old car!
This Cabriolet is the first VW that I myself have ever owned, actually the first car that is really mine! And I'm 61! I have been looking for a Cabriolet for several years and when I found this one, I know I paid a little too much and she needs a little work, but I have so much fun driving this car! This car fits me to a T, my hubby, not so much.Thank goodness we can put the top down! I'm planning on keeping my Gretel until the fenders fall off or someone offers me a million for her whichever comes first. ha ha
Convertible, automatic, great stereo, White interior, such a blast to drive, the only one like it in our Rather large town, and everybody wants me to take them for a ride when they come for a visit!
NO place to put your drink- for the driver or passenger,and that is really maddening. But,what can you say for a 17 year old car that has over 105,000 miles on her?
I have seen every one of this workhorse's, my 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet, 189,000 miles. Now that she's a geriatric, she's gained a bit of an attitude with her reliability, but is still far more dependable than any other car her age and/or with her miles (if you can find one).
I have loved my 93 vw ... i should
note ... before this i had a 91 vw
jetta which i did not (like) ... the
only negative i can say about this car
is the oil pressure switch is sometimes
a hassle - if u get a good vw mechanic -
they can take care of it .... as of
2003, i have 173000 miles on it ... and
i have never changed the clutch or had
any other major problems .... been
fun ... and i plan to keep it ... for a
long time ...
the top has served me well - i would
highly recommend a dark top ... (people
i have known ... got the white top
which gets dirty very quick ) ... the
stereo has been fun and the heated
seats always are a plus ...
The only problem i really ever had
involved the oil pressure switch ...
Loved this car - still do .
