Fun car, poor quality

1997 Volkswagen Cabrio Highline 2dr Convertible


Since I purchased the car in 1999 I
have has the following fixes (outside
of normal wear and tear): Replaced the
cloth top ($1200), the antenna, parts
in the gear shifter, the whole
windshield washer fluid system (tubes,
sprayers etc), air-conditioning
refrigerator ($1200). Plastic parts
are always falling off, the seat
adjusters, parts of the handles, parts
in the trunk, the outside molding.
The car quality is poor at best. All
the parts are very very expensive.
It's a nice looking car, so just look
at it, don't touch it or it will fall

Best Features

Convertable! Leather seats. Fun to drive. Rollover bar.

Worst Features

Less expenive parts (the tune up with spark plug wires was $400+)(9 times out of 10 have to get parts from dealer). Better quality of parts, better quality of body. This car is ALWAYS falling apart.
