Is the 87 Cabriolet difficult to get parts for and expensive to fix?

Asked by Oct 08, 2007 at 03:21 PM about the 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm looking at one with 175,000 miles but i don't want to be stuck with expensive repair bills.

1 Answer

40,935

With the advent of aftermarket parts, etc., this wouldn't be a hard car to get parts for, however, with 175k miles, I would think you could find a better one for less money and lower miles by looking. That is a lot of mileage for anything.
