    @AMGSL63 , Thank you for the prompt reply.

    @GLHatWFO --Hi, thanks for bringing that to my attention. The mileage is 4,862. See photo 66 in the gallery. These photos were taken on Wednesday, June 15, 2022. I suspect the Carfax number comes from a sloppy entry from Brooklyn Volkswagen. I will get in touch with Carfax about it. Thanks.

    @AMGSL63, neat VW. Did you notice the mileage discrepancy on the CARFAX? Last annotation is for 7000 miles. Will you get that corrected? Thank you.

    @Porsche @Porsche- No, everything runs fine and the battery was just replaced and is 100% new.

  • Porsche (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    Great color, looks like a fun car. Any known issues?
    Good luck

    Hi everyone-- I hope you will love this little VW convertible as much as I have. It's cute, handy, small and easy to park, and fun to drive with the top down in summer! I've taken great care of the canvas top, and it comes with a VW boot to cover it when it's folded. I'm getting up in years and my daughter doesn't want me driving-- otherwise I wouldn't part with it!
