Windshield wipers stopped working. I'm assuming the Wiper motor has died
Had 100k service done. Wondering if putting more money in is going to be possible at this point.
They go down after the car has been parked for a couple of !minutes or it could be a couple of hours. It doesn't do it all the time
Only happens every once in a while but mor often
me how to fix the problem
I have an issue with my Cabrio. At start up up I gotta put my foot on the gas pedal to fire it up. I also gotta hold it on there till it idles right. It idles weird at start up as well, it'll go up and down. After it idles and runs right if I leave to soon and go to a stop sign or stop in general it'll try to shut off unless my foot is on the gas pedal. If I pull out on a hill it wants to shut off as well. And while I'm driving it jerks back and forth till I get the gas pedal to a certain point or if the RPM's are higher. If I get on it the car will really jerk back and forth bad. If someone can help me, I'd GREATLY appreciate it. I can't figure out what's causing it.
It cranks over but won't fire - is this a faulty key only had the car a week now
while driving our 2002 cabrio the car stopped driving and the engine light came on. I was able to put the car in first and parked...had it towed and trying to figure out what's wrong? can anyone give their thoughts? is it something in the engine or transmission?
Stream out of oil filter fitting
I purchased a 2002 VW Cabrio GLX for my daughter. A pretty good car overall but I have one issue.

The FRONT windows will not roll down. Even after I replaced the drivers side switch. I hear the passenger try to do something but nothing happens I hear nothing when I try the drivers side.

The back windows work great and there aren't any other electric issues with the car. The previous owner said that the windows stopped working at the same time.

I haven't seen any fuses for the power windows. Is there a relay or something up on the fuse box?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
So I went to start my car last night and it made a rough grinding noise and kind of sputtered when it finally cranked. It did this twice last night and then today when I went to go somewhere it did it again but instead of grinding then turning over it made the noise and won't start. Any ideas as to what this could be. Have fuel to the engine, have spark as well, new plugs fuel pump is cycling, I precious had my starter seize up and I tapped it with a mallet and it started working again. Could this mean my starter finally has gone out?
