Nothing yet. I have had to fix a few minor things, such as door handle and front wheel bearing. Very minor.
It is a fun to drive convertible. A manual transmission is fun, but can be annoying in stop and go traffic.
Anyways, I bought it as a weekend car, as putting the top down and driving the car is so much fun. The convertible top is manual, so fewer things can wrong.
It is a noisy ride, but if you were concerned about that, do not get a convertible. Wind blowing in your face and connecting with Nature is priceless.

1991 Volkswagen Cabrio cabriolet 1.8 liter I4
Not bad not great, for the right price it's not a bad buy
Had to replace all the belts
Had to replace the valve lifters
Had to replace the exhaust manifold
Had to replace window switch
And the correct grade oil (20/20) is impossible to find.
Well this car is an interesting one. I thought VW was a brand of simplicity and reliability. I was wrong. I have put more money into this vehicle then my Jaguar. I don't know what's scarier that I have this combination of vehicles in my garage or that that this one requires more upkeep. The car performs well for having such a small engine, but the interior and exterior is the most dull combination possible early 90's and German. I don't dislike this vehicle I just can't say that there is any great thing that makes it stand out, and maintenence has been an issue. I guess it is partially my fault for not doing enough research on the car before I bought it, so with that in mind I guess if you can find one cheap enough to make up for it's running costs I would go ahead and get it.

News Flash: I put more money into this car then my old Jaguar which was three years older and had 141000 miles on it. I only got rid of it because of the rust, which the early XJ40 models are famous for. I thought a 15 year old Volkswagen would be more reliable then a 18 year old Jaguar. So much for German engineering. However I will say that this is one of the best handling vehicles I have had. It stays very level through turns. Also the front wheel drive makes it very capable in the winter.
