1992 Volkswagen Cabriolet Carat Review
Whats So Great About Cabriolet's? — I loved my VW because it got great gas mileage, it was sporty and small so it hugged the curves in Colorado well and it had great get up and go for a four cylinder. I love German engineering and you can't get much better performance or horse power from and eight valve engine. Plus the added enjoyment of a convertible top on the highway or around town never hurts. I would recommend this car to anyone who enjoys driving on mountain passes for the best gas mileage possible in a gasoline powered engine and a little touch of unique styling for a relatively affordable price.
Pros: Great gas mileage, style and versatility.
Cons: Low ground clearance, no off roading in this baby!

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
