Very Dependable,extremely Economical,absolutely A Blast To Drive ! — My daughter bought her 1988 cabriolet in 2005.She paid too much and it shook,rattled and barely rolled.Thank god my best friend is a mechanic so between the two of us the car has recieved a new rebuilt motor(original one),a complate body job,everything underneath is new,and a brand new top.We are now starting on the interior.My point is that when she first bought it i hated the car,and now two years later i hate to admit that i have more fun driving it than my 1985 corvette(except when im going 150 mph and i do ).its absolutely a blast to drive . as far as expensive to repair you just have to be willing to source out parts and stay away from the vw dealership when possible.you'll be amazed what you can find on the internet now for these cars.Go VW.

I Love This Car By zippycabby

This car is like driving a go-kart. It turns instantly, handles like it is glued to the road, and has a really tight turning circle. Just about the perfect size for a car around the city. I especially... Read More
