  3. New Beetle & New Beetle Convertible
    I have just replaced the window wire on the right hand side rear window. When I got everything assembled I was not able to get the top up. When operating the switch there is no sound or reaction. Is it likely that I have unplugged a wire somewhere? Do you think I have to take everything apart...
  4. The Beetle
    Lately since I had my windshield replaced a few weeks ago, I've been having large amounts of water come in through the top where the top meets the windshield frame when it rains hard. They've replaced the windshield to make sure it wasn't the windshield seal but it wasn't. I'm thinking when...
  5. New Beetle & New Beetle Convertible
    Hi Guys, I'm helping a family member out with their Beetle and we've run into a snag. It's an '07 and has been in storage for a couple of years (not in the best conditions I might add.) Recently when fixing it up and checking out the power top we realized it wouldn't lock all the way down...
  6. Cabriolet
    Any tips on an easy engine swap for this model of car?

    We swear we are not looking for cars that the owners have named. Sure we had Greta the Jetta last week, and this week we bring you the unfortunately-not-rhyming Doris the Cabrio. Hell, we're not even sure what rhymes with Cabrio. Fabio the Cabrio? Meh. Regardless, here's a thread from our...

    Happy Monday everyone. This week we bring a not-quite-Build-or-Buy article. In the past, we've had some "Build or Build" editions of this series where both found examples needed some work, but this week we have two classic Volkswagens in very good shape (one more than the other). So if you're...

    Great news for everyone who thought that the Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet was a great idea, but not Volkswageny enough. The open-top crossover segment size has officially grown. Its name is Teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee T-Roc Cabriolet. This is for the questions that don't have any answers. Because...
  10. Golf I & Jetta I
    Sometimes, when you get your dream car, it needs a little work — but that's part of the fun! Here's one such story, as told by Isaac — or isakitow , as he's known on the VWvortex forum where he told his tale. Isaac always wanted a Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible, and he finally found one back...

    Say the words “drop-top utility vehicle” and American minds desperately conjure up memories of Chevrolet, GMC, Ford, Dodge, and International Harvester models of the 1970s — anything to avoid visions of the defunct Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet and somehow still alive Range Rover Evoque...

    Well lookie here, one of our very own is selling his incredible ride. Today's Find of the Day started as a simple project. But once inspiration strikes, the simple plan can veer off sharply. And Global Moderator [email protected] 's 1996 turbocharged VR6 Cabrio is the definition of sharp. We've...

    Italdesign Giugiaro is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a new supercar at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. At the same show last year, the Italian design house unveiled the first car to be sold under its name, the Zerouno. The company is following it with a convertible variant at this year’s...

    Hmm. Okay, then. In the realm of harmless mysteries, convertible crossovers rank pretty high—just above Turkish Delight and below the Shake Weight (seriously, how did that happen?). But VW apparently knows something that I don’t and has decided that what the T-Roc really needs is less rigidity...

    Audi recently took a patent out on a new type of convertible folding mechanism that allows for a convertible to be designed with B and D pillars. The patent shows a very basic, two-box-design vehicle whose roof is broken into three parts in order to fold away and stow behind the rear seats...

    Funny things happen when you drive a Lamborghini for the first time. Everything you do becomes a dramatic affair and this is even more true with a convertible Lamborghini. If you ever wanted to know what it feels like to be someone famous, driving a Lamborghini droptop might give you proper...

    It's that wonderful time of year when temperatures warm, the sun stays in the sky for a little bit longer every day, and sweaters retreat into dresser drawers for their annual hibernation. For car nerds it's not just spring, it's convertible shopping season. Now's the time to start looking for...

    I think I’m right in saying that there are more Volkswagen Beetles in the world than there are actual beetles (don’t look that up, just trust me). For a while there, you couldn’t take two steps without tripping over a Beetle, but there are still, and always have been, some really rare versions...
