Too expensive to keep it looking cute
By Toni on
Vehicle2002 Volkswagen Cabrio GL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThe VW Cabrio is cute but frequently needs high cost bits and pieces replaced. The latest is over $260 for a plastic front grill which took several weeks to arrive at the dealership. The grill ws broken by the dealership because that was the only way for them to get to the broken hood latch. It is also very expensive to insure, even if it's just state minimum requirements. This high maintenance for its appearance and high insurance costs eat up any savings from the good fuel economy.
Best FeaturesThe good gas mileage, the convertible top is fun, it handles very well, and it is mechanically sound.
Worst FeaturesMake the appearance items like grilles, cup holders and similar more sturdy so that owners aren't always taking a financial hit on appearance related repairs.
