Cute but needs lots more power
By Srunr26 on


1998 Volkswagen Cabrio GL 2dr Convertible


When the weather was nice and I could
put the top down, I loved this car.
The rest of the time, I was not happy
with it. I got the automatic
transmission because I drive in heavy
traffic. Big mistake. I should have
been suspicious when none of the
dealers I went to for a test
drive had an automatic to test
drive, but I went ahead and got the
automatic anyway. The car would not
shift when it needed to. I had to take
it in several times for this to be
adjusted. Also very disappointed
in the lack of power. Merging into
heavy, fast traffic was a nightmare. I
recently sold this car and I am very
happy that I did.

Adorable car, roof easy to put down, comfortable firm seats
