Hi everyone, my name's Brandon and I'm a fellow Cabrio lover. I just purchased a 2002 Cabrio (automatic). This is my second Cabrio, my previous one was a 97 (standard).
I got a good deal on it, it's in good condition but has a few issues:
1) Airbag light, parking brake light and ABS lights are on. The brakes seem to work just fine, and I'm told the airbags have never been deployed. I'm guessing this is a sensor issue? Because this car appears to be in great shape and according to records this car has never been in an accident.
2) Seems to have a minor overheating issue. When the A/C is turned high the car appears to slowly overheat, passing the halfway mark (which I've always been told it should not pass).
I'm going to get the car checked out by a mechanic, but I thought I'd also ask the opinions of people who are specific experts on the VW Cabrio. What do you think are the causes behind these issues?
