  • Beautiful, but only to the eye. - 1997 Audi Cabriolet
    By -

    This vehicle is very, very attractive. Mechanically it has been very disappointing. The engine is lame. I dont need a power house but this engine is simply not eager. Weve had many problems with this car, passenger seat jammed, engine light on consistently, front suspension issues, roof wont open all the time, driver window regulator blew, fuel gauge inaccurate and fails, replaced fuel tank evaporator valve, seats squeak, replace engine seals due to oil leaks, water pump failed early, cigarette lighter doesnt work, radio antennae mast failed, trunk lid struts failed and other minor irritants. The car isnt as good a handling vehicle as my 97 BMW. Fuel economy isnt stellar. Dont buy 1!

    I have driven this car for several years and really have enjoyed it. It runs well, the top is easy to operate, and most importantly, it is reliable. This car is distinct and well crafted, without a ton of bells and whistles.

    I can only say great things about this car. It has been a sheer joy to drive and it looks incredibly beautiful. Good luck finding one!

    I love this car as far as ride and handling goes. Fuel economy is not what I expected. It has a tendency to be a money pit with regards to constant minor repairs. The quality of the car leaves one baffled when you consider the association of the name. Although, as I said I like the ride and handling, it is most doubtful that I would ever buy another one.

  • Sweet Convertible Cruiser - 1997 Audi Cabriolet
    By -

    Bought this one owner Audi Cabriolet 2 years ago, drive it only in the summer (top has never been up ). A real head turner, and always draws comments when parked. V6 not powerful, no electric seats, no tilt steering, but fun as all hell to drive, no problems to date.

  • Sad to see go - 1997 Audi Cabriolet
    By -

    The Audi cabriolet has been a fabulous car for me. Very reliable, very zippy and tons of fun. As a petite woman, it was the only covertible that I test drove where I had any visiability out of the rear. Have loved this cars for years and cant recommend the model enough -- trunk space is minimal, but so easy to dump things in the back seat. Happily, a relative is buying this car from me, otherwise, I couldnt part with it. I had three people lined up who said, if you ever sell, I will buy!

    I like the power compared to my 2.5 TL Acura ,it comes on soundlessly and over 60 has the pull of locomotive.Compared to my sold miata it is not the best handeling but if a SUV (driver/phone user on wheels) decides to back end me I wont be flatted like a bug. Very comfortable with top down and the windspoiler in place.

  • Awesome car - 1997 Audi Cabriolet
    By -

    This car was given to me by my dad, who loves audis. If youre looking to buy a car with a good name and good looks, this is definently a great pick! I havent had any problems with it, though sometimes the automatic top is stubborn.

  • Timeless Car - 1997 Audi Cabriolet
    By -

    This car is now 6 years old, and still draws attention when its parked with the top down. The design is absolutely timeless: it looks like it was carved out of a single block of steel. The 2.8 engine (Audis pre-5 valves per cylinder model) with 170 horses will not rocket this heavy car off the line, but thats not the point of the Cabriolet. Its a classic cruiser, and it fills that role beautifully. I will keep it 20 years.

  • buyer beware - 1997 Audi Cabriolet
    By -

    I love the look of this car, but would NEVER buy another Audi. I had serious problems with many aspects of this car - for example, replaced the battery 3 times in 4 years. Had to replace the entire steering system - and the car only has 46000 miles on it.
