Volkswagen Cabrio ProblemsReverse Gear Failures and/or Noise From Manual Transmission
Reverse gear failures and noise in the manual transmission models are common.
Shifting issues due to internal problems in high mileage automatic transmissions can be difficult to resolve without transmission replacement.
Electrical issues that are difficult to diagnose—and sometimes intermittent—are typically due to ground wiring issues. The most troublesome ground locations are under the battery or at the engine.
Volkswagen Cabrio QuestionsMajor oil leak; oil goes thru the car, makes slushing sound, does turn over (2 answers)
was in winter/snow weather over wkend. when i went to drive car, oil light started flashing after i drove less than a mile, now when i add oil, it comes out immediately and leaks out onto ground... help! what should we check first?
It was raining.I turn the switch to get them to go slower they stopped in mid motion in the middle of the windshield.
I pulled over and parked, went to start it back up and it wouldn't start. I tried starting after it cooled down but still nothing. I have a full tank gas. All my fluids are good. And its not the battery. Any ideas?
Volkswagen Cabrio RecallsRecall 02V244000
Volkswagen has recalled certain 1998 Cabrio, 1997-1999 Jetta, and 1998-2003 Passat models because the fuel tank filler neck can suffer abrasion damage if the rear tire goes flat and the vehicle is driven until the tire disintegrates. This may lead to fuel leakage, which can result in a fire. Depending on the model, there are different solutions to the problem. Contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987 for more information.
