It's a Love/Hate relationship...
By Val on


2002 Volkswagen Cabrio GLX 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I wanted a cabrio for years and have
truly enjoyed the vehicle. It's been
great for both road trips and around
town...very comfy, lots of fun, and
plenty of zip for me. Performs
extremely well at high speeds.
However - I am less than satisfied with
the A/C, peeling door handles, cup
holders, and the locking/security
system. I'm about to take the car in
for the 3rd time to fix the A/C
(leaking & blowing white powder), the
5th time for the locks (passenger door
won't lock from inside), and the
handles peeled within 4 mths of
ownership. Very discouraging!!
Especially in the Texas heat!!

Best Features

Love the look, top down ease, handling, comfort for 4 passengers, etc. Really lives up to all my expectations of a fun convertible!

Worst Features

Please address the peeling door handles, poor A/C, central locking problems, and tiny cup-holders. Also, CD changer should be inside the vehicle. As much as I enjoy the "big things", the little things going wrong drive you crazy day-to-day! Not sure I'd buy another.
