An often overlooked fun budget car
By Busbodger on


1997 Volkswagen Cabrio Highline 2dr Convertible


We paid $5500 for our car. It needs
tires and the front bumper and grille
has stone wear on it, but we'll tackle
it later. Fun to drive, plenty of room
for 4 adults or 2 adults and 2 baby
seats. Frugal and easy to maintain. A
wonderful update to our 1984 Rabbit
Convertible. I would recommend this
convertible as it was easy to
incorporate into our lives. Both fun and
sensible and durable. My previous '84
Convertible had close to 200K miles when
I sold it and I expect to see the same
durability in this car. The steel
encased trunk, added safety features
(ABS, rollbar, airbags), cloth top, and
leather interior are very nice updates!
Contact me if have any quest
