The car has heated seats. A car is only as good as who is taking care of it. All the service requirements, plus, have been done with this vehicle for all the miles. One owner one way of taking care of the vehicle. We are purchasing a new VW convertible to replace this one.

Have owned '01 for six years; one-owner previous. Only work needed is AC unit; repaired not replaced. Bought to supplement two motorcycles on trips w/out rain/heat/cold/etc. Have cruised the plains to the sea and points in between. Love the ease of roof raise/lower. Heated seats keep butt warm on cold days w/roof down. Five speed shift gives enough 'sport car' effect to make this ol' guy happy. 25/39 mpg!!!!

Bought it used with very low mileage drove it 5 years and 80000mls and never had any bigger problem with it. The maintanance is very affordable. Very small turning radius and the trunk is huge for such a small car.

The Cabrio is a great little car with a sports car feel. It can keep up with the big dogs despite the 4 cylinders. It has plenty of head room and interior space even for tall people. The ride is amazingly smooth on the open road for a small car and the leather interior gives it a rich feel. It's great in the city for getting in and out of tight parking spaces and getting through city traffic. There's nothing like the warm breeze on a summer day tooling around in a convertible! Especially one that is fun to drive.

We wanted a decent car with good gas mileage for our bi-weekly drive into town. We consider the convertible a bonus. This car gets 32 MPG (really) on the highway and isn't as boring as a civic. ( our other option) It has so far been a reliable 80,000 miles. The interior isn't first rate, by any standard though, and is showing real wear. Our only complaint. Other than that, it is cheap, enjoyable driving. It handles nicely, but is tepid in its preformance. It's not a sports car

I wanted a reasonably priced convertable for summer driving only. Came across a 2001 with very low milegae at a great price. Best car deal I ever made. What a fun car, great milegage, easy to maintain. It will last me another 8 to 10 years easy. Thanks cars.com

by from green bay wi on October 22, 2015

enjoying the good gas mileage of 30 plus. Sound system is awesome even with the top down and 80mph. Only 60K on it so we hope for many fun miles ahead.
