2001 VW Cabrio...... will start when cold. from time to time it will not start when warm. engine cranks fine but nothing.
I have had the car for almost a year. I had it checked out before I bought it and had to replace a few belts including the timing belt because the mechanic suggested it would be time soon enough. I LOVE the car but have to look past a few issues with it. My brake light comes on out of the blue even though the previous owner had them replaced a few months before I bought it (I saw the receipt). ...
It seemed so "cute" too bad it spends more time (and money) in the shop than on the road.
