Very attached to my car!!
February 25, 2014
I bought my 1998 Cabrio in 2006 with 50,000 miles. I am the second owner and the car has been not only fun to drive but dependable, affordable & stylish! It was in mint condition when I bought it, with leather interior, pop out stereo, and some small detailing to exterior.
I now have 117,500 miles, have had very few repairs in the soon to be 8 years I have owned it!! I just had a new exhaust system installed & have been advised to get new timing belt--I have maintained the car with regular service, oil changes etc--the car is showing a decent amount of rust right above wheels--I drive it to the beach all summer long, top down--and it has survived winters in NJ & OH. I put many miles on the car in the last 4 years driving back and forth to OH ( approx. 10 trips all together) and road trips to MA, MD, DC, NYC, Long Island, CT, PA, WV --- great gas mileage, the car has been a great fit for me, I love that it can park practically anywhere with no sweat, it fun to maneuver---the electrical system is a little quirky--but no major problems or expenses in 8 years. I wish I could find another in such great condition--its going to be tough to find another car I like as much or that has been such a great car. Cant imagine driving any thing else.....
