Good German Car. —

IF you know German engineering, then you know that Volkswagen is nothing but good old fashioned German fun. Yes it takes a little getting used to the way things work and feel but once you meld with this little convertible the miles are fast and fun. Professor Porsche had a hand in development at VW. and it shows. The car is quick for having only 94 hp. It will accelerate with easy anticipation and is nimble and maneuverable at all speeds. And at 25 to 30 miles per gallon, Fahrvergn├╝gen is the best way to describe it, It's simple driving pleasure. It's not designed for big Americans though. The cabin width is a bit tiny and the leg room isn't really designed for more than two people over 6 feet. (the back seat tends to be a little crowded with the front seats all the way back. Foot peddles are close together like most small euro cars. But for the average sized family (Mom, Dad, two kids) it's a fun and hard working machine. Parts are a bit costly and knowing a competent mechanic is a must. Other than that, regular oil changes and maintenance will provide thousands of miles of carefree enthusiastic fun.

Sarah says:
I use this car as my Sunday driver only in good weather. It seems like the previous six owners have as well. It has low mileage, almost everything works & is original. It can fit into tight spaces & not take a whole lot of room. Its got the roll bar for added safety.

Would Buy Ranked 1990 Ford Mustang worse.
"Its built to last longer. The 90s Mustang I drove in the 90s was already falling apart. My Cabriolet has had seven owners & is in very clean, great condition with minimal replacements (lamp lens cover, newer seats), everything is mostly original. "
