Nice car but not backed by VW

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


My wife's Cabrio, bought new in Jan.
2000 has been basically a good car. It
is reasonably peppy and fun to drive.
Recently, the automatic transmission
began holding upshifts into overdrive.
The dealer said the computer lost its
baseline settings and although the car
only had 19746 miles, VW would not
cover it under warranty. Even though
the 24 month warranty was past, the
mileage was way under 24K. I contend
that this should not be happening and
if VW won't back it now, I have little
hope of them doing the right thing
later on. This combined with constant
oxygen sensor problems on a '99 Jetta
has made me loose faith in VW.

Best Features

Convertible top, room for 3 comfortably and reasonable trunk for a convertible.

Worst Features

VW needs to stand behind their product better, especially the electrical components.
