1997 Volkswagen Cabrio 2dr Convertible


Maybe it's because I bought it used, but overall this car has been a disaster. It has a clean title and I do a lot of upkeep and it still keeps making its way back into the shop...and repairs are EXPENSIVE. Parts are not cheap for this car at all. I have had numerous problems with oxygen sensors and with the cooling system. My latest woe was having to replace the timing belt and radiator. It's actually in the shop as I speak...and I made need the catalytic converter replaced....ouch....I'm now in the market for a new vehicle.

Best Features

It's convertible which is fun. The top is pretty strong and the back window is glass. The fact that it's convertible is about the only thing I like.

Worst Features

Definite imporovements need to be made to the cooling system as well to some of the exterior and interior components. The sidings on the doors fall off periodically and the seat adjutment knob has broken off. Also, the puke green color of the instrument panel has started to bother me more and more
