Pros: Fun To drive with the top down.

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: You can't find them readily enough to look and touch.
Cons: I would buy another one without hesitation.

Please make room for the VW EuroVan VR6. We had looked for about a year at all the vans that are on the market, none can come up to the standard that the EuroVan VR6 has. Before I give you all the good stuff about it,let me tell you that we left Florida ... read more

Cabrio concerns

by
Aug 19, 2000 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: solid feel, great construction
Cons: upset regarding false advertising - poor response from VW to resolve paint and warranty issues. Not worth the ride for this money/treatment

We bought a new 1999 Cabrio as a fun car for the family - for occasional use on nice days. Overall the car is very well designed and constructed. For a convertible, it's extremely solid - showing much attention was paid to the design of the body. We ... read more

Pros: SMALL, CONVERTIBLE, CHEAP
Cons: NO BACK SEAT ROOM

You only get one first car, so make it good. This one is my first car, and I love it. The main thing, is that it is a CONVERTIBLE. The car runs great. I haven't had one thing wrong with it yet. When it is nice out, you can put the top down, and ... read more

Believe it or not we started out seriously looking at SUV's but just could not get past the SIZE and gas consumption of those things. As I pondered the whole reason to trade I found really wanted something distinctive and FUN to drive. I wanted ... read more

Pros: Nice ride, beautiful interior and exterior, no problems what-so-ever.
Cons: Seats take a while to heat up, other than that, no cons.

The VW Cabrio GLS is a wonderful small sized car with a very sporty feel. I was very timid when buying a convertible, and since my previous car was a '87 VW Cabriolet, I knew that I couldn't live without another. The ride is like floating on ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: comfortable and roomy
Cons: In and out of the shop

I purchased the Cabrio b/c I wanted an affordable convertible that had a good reputation. For a sub-compact it's comfortable, roomy and has good trunk space. As far as convertibles go it's great. The top is very easy to put up and down, which is ... read more

Pros: Quality manufacturing; dashboard lights; adjustable seats; the look and the feel.

Pros: great gas mileage, CUTE CAR
Cons: Not a family car

I love this car. That is about all I need to say, but I suppose that I should say why. When it was first suggested to me to look at the Volkswagon Cabrio, I immediately said, "there is no way I am going to drive that girly car." Even as a ... read more

When I was looking for a new car, I didn't have the Cabrio in mind. I hadn't even looked at one. When I was at the Volkswagen dealership, that changed. When I first saw it, I thought that's a cute little car. The next day I went back and got it. The ... read more

The Perfect Car

Dec 30, 1999 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Comfortable driving, safe feeling.
Cons: I don't like the boxed look that much, but it does give it some appeal. It's a matter of taste really.

I'm not by any means the authority on this car simply because I have not personally been the one to buy it. This however, does not diminish my opinion. Basically, this car is awesome...It has the look of the oh-so-cute beetle, but not the awkwardness ... read more
