Great car, horrible top

2003 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I love this car. I'm a BIG guy and I have all of the comfort of my Chrysler 300. The only issue I've had is with the convertible top. I've had it in 4 times because some cables in the raising and lowering mechanism come off track and get caught up in the whole works and it screws up the top liner. It seems to be fixed, but now it happened to the other side and it pulled more cables loose, part of the interior molding and broke some other pieces that are down inside. I've only had the car for 9 months and have only been putting the top down for 3 of them. It only had 24,000 miles when I got it!

Favorite Features

Roomy, stylish, fun to drive, great stereo, comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

Just fix the top.
