Don't believe the VW hype
By Barrwiese on


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


This car is a money pit. Get ready to pay. The door handles, the mass airflow sensor (a ten year part), the catalytic converter, handle from the glove box, 3 mufflers, heated mirrors and the entire exhaust system went and had to be replaced. The windows go up and down at will, the "dealer disabled" security system locks itself at will like when I am driving, which sets off the alarm, the check engine light comes on constantly and my mechanic shudders when he seems me coming.

Best Features

The convertible top.

Worst Features

Quality: parts, craftmanship.
