Hey guys my name is Ed and I live in central Ky. I recently bought my first VW, it's a 2002 Cabrio. To date, I have owned primarily Toyotas and Fords and the VW way of doing things is interesting and sometimes pretty impressive. I got a good deal on this car, It has 90k miles and is in pretty good shape. However, it is plagued with alot of minor problems, some of which I have already solved. I joined the forum in hopes of getting some information on the other troubles the car has and maybe help out someone else having problems that I am familiar with.

My name is Steve.
I'm going to be 64 years young, in a couple weeks.
I have been 'married' for over 41 years. I have 2 beautiful children. 3 even MORE beautiful grand children.
This is my 2nd VW.
My first was a 2002 red 2.0 auto beetle hatchback. I owned/modified IT for about 3 years.
Mother nature totaled it out via HAIL almost a year ago.
The same day SHE kicked its ass, I purchased my current ride.
A beautiful 2013 red vw beetle. 2.0 tsi turbo, 6 speed manual.
I've been throwing money at it/making it faster ever since.
I had a LONG/drawn out documentary here moments ago, but computer malfunction either on the
part of this forum, or whatever trashed it, so you guys/gals get the abbreviated version.

I hope to maybe answer some questions, and even more so, get some of my questions answered here.
Tks

Hi all,
Name's Jim, I'm in Baltimore MD.
I'm 45 and work in the scale service industry.
Just bought my daughter her first car.
She loves the old Jettas, so she now has a 1998 Jetta GL with the 2.0 engine.

I've taken care of all the inspection stuff, but she's afraid to drive it because it occasionally stalls when you pull into or out of a parking spot.

Once I'm allowed to ask questions, I have one that's perplexing me.

Hey all,
My name is Bryan. I'm 37, living outside of Dallas, TX. I married into an '83 Rabbit convertible, triple white, nice looking little car. It was my mother-in-laws first car that she gave to my wife some years ago, so it's been in the family since it was new. It's been sitting in a garage for about 6 years and I'd love to get it fixed up and running right for her. I'm an RN and don't have a ton of experience working on my own cars but wouldn't mind learning, just don't know where to start with this. I'm here for all the help I can get.

Hi all. Brand new here. My first car was an 81 Mk 1 Scirocco. Wish I still had it! Since then I’ve owned three Audi’s but haven’t gotten back into the VW family. Yesterday I ordered a 2019 Jetta R-Line. Anxious for it to arrive!

My dailiy driver is an E-Golf and I just bought a Golf 4 on the weekend for my son. It will need some work so I though the best place to get advice is on a VW Forum.

Hi all,
I have visited this site many times over the years. VW has always been my fav mfg and I have had several buses in my days. At present, I have a 61 bus and 99.5 golf (the daily driver).
Glad to have access to the VW knowledge, pics and chats....
Cheers!
