Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet owner reviews

“Good to drive and relatively spacious inside, the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet offers many of the good points of the hatch but with the extra appeal of a fold-away roof.”

I had judder from the 7 speed dsg box. It's a common issue as it's a "dry" clutch. Look online. I had a nightmare with my local Volkswagen dealer who said it was my style of driving. Once I agreed to pay the labour charges they inspected the gearbox and it was faulty. It meant a new gearbox. Fortunately it was still under warranty. Go for the 2 litre 6 speed box. Such a shame as I loved the car.

Excellent in all respects and a delight to drive after owning a 2008 MX5 for 3 years.
