Not Happy
By Anne Avidon on


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


I made the mistake of not purchasing the extended warranty and it has cost me at least $6,000 to repair my car in the 6 years I have owned it. The mass airflow sensor has gone twice, I've had problems with the doors, windows, pistons in the convertible roof, and I have just had to pay $1,500 for a leak detection pump, serpentine belt and starter coil. Each time the dealer has to run a diagnostic, it costs another $94. Although I really like the car, if I had known how much it would cost to repair at the time I purchased it, I would not have made the same decision.

Best Features

The convertible roof. The blue neon light on the dashboard.

Worst Features

Better engineering and less equipment failure.
