2001 Volkswagen Cabrio GLS 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Don't be folled by its cute appearance. There is a reason why VW no longer makes these. It is strange how all the problems started to occur on mine right after the 25,000 mile factory warranty was up. I have never had a car before that has needed a new exhaust system at 25,000 miles, not to mention new brakes immediately after that. In addition, be warned that you can only get engine coolant for this car at a VW or Audi dealer service departments, which can also lead to expensive repairs and a long wait to even get an appointment. For those of you who are winter drivers, the Cabrio for sure is not the car you want to deal with snow and slush in.

Best Features

The windows go up with the use of the key in the driver's door. I also like the heated seats and easy to put down top.

Worst Features

Build it with better mechanical parts for long life and less repairs at an early age. Add a traction control option and a turbo model for more power. Use better interior fabric and materials.
