02 Vw Cabrio — overall i love it. it's zippy when you want it to be, but it's still a 4cyl. for what it weighs (3600lb) it handles like a dream.

Loved My Zippy Little Car. — This car has great acceleration, very quick and handles well. Only reason for selling was it was difficult to put my grand children in and out of car seats. Parking couldn't have been easier, it was a dream to park. Brakes and handling were very good. It is a fun car to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Baby — LOOOOOOOVE IT. this is my first car and i couldn't have asked for anything better! it's so fun to drive in the summer and handles great in the winter. tiny tank but drives far. i love this car to death. there is 112k and paint is in good condition except for a possible buff on the back left side. heated seats are amazing and heats up really fast. leather interior. black on black. <3

'02 Vw Cabrio — Only problem I've ever had with my car was the roof splitting in the back. My acceleration is great when im shifting sloothly, its sound free...nothing clangs or rattles. the milage is fantastic! I had to replace spark plugs as well. other than that, i love my baby. Its a blast to drive!

Fun — we have only had it 2 months, it sat in an estate for over a year. enjoying the good gas mileage of 30 plus. Sound system is awesome even with the top down and 80mph. Only 90K on it so we hope for many fun miles ahead.

Pros

The roof disappears, good on gas, kinda good looking.

Cons

Everything else

Yuck — If the VIN number starts with a 3, it's made in Mexico, which means the build quality is really bad. Performance? there isn't any. It's really heavy and underpowered. It is good on gas, over 30mpg (the only good thing about it). There is no fun factor to it, except the top goes down. I would never buy one. It's not fast, it's not made well. To me, a car is only worth owning if it's either fast, or reliable, or both. Volvos are good...too bad they didn't make a 240 convertible. Total piece of crap as far as I'm concerned, that's just my opinion.
