Manufactured in Germany
We acquired our VW in May of 2000. The first thing that sets this Rabbit apart from other VW convertibles is the fact that Volkswagen no longer manufactures the "Rabbit Convertible" model. The "Rabbit Convertible" was only made from 1979 to 1984. In 1985 they became known as Cabriolet's.
Since we were told all Rabbit Convertibles were manufactured in Germany. We decided to dig around and see what info we could find on our Rabby. Our Rabbit Convertible was produced October of 1983. It didn't make it to the United States until 1991. Hmmm...wonder how she liked running on the Autobahn??
With a little VW luck on our side....We ran across an '86 Cabriolet parts car. Was a little sad to strip the poor girl, but she needed some serious mechanical work and our car was in need of a donor. As you check out our different bunny sections, you'll read where we've used different parts from that poor little Cabriolet (may she rest in peace).
Rabbit Engine and MechanicsOur Rabbit has the original 1.8L 8v 4-Cylinder motor with over 200,000 miles. Our Rabbit has automatic transmission. We have done some mechanical work on our rabbit, so....

What can we say? It's probably the part of the car that has needed the most work.
