Question about 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio
Before that 6th or 7th try when it finally cranks what is it doing when it's not starting? Sounds of any kind? Anything else?

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: VW CABRIO CAR GOES THRU AND SHIFTS FINE WHEN YOU FIRST START OUT AFTER ABOUT 3-5 MINUTES GOING DOWN THE ROAD IT WILL COME OUT OF GEAR IN LIKE A NEAUTRAL POSTION I PUT SHIFTER IN NEAUTRAL AND THEN BACK
Is it a full auto box or auto with manual selection. Full auto has only 1,2,D,R. If its full auto take it to a regular tyre/exhaust place and ask them to help.
The vw and audi auto gearboxes that also have selectable manual gears are only reliable when they have the correct clean oil in them.
The oil is special and expensive, and you must only use the oil from VW. If you havent changed the gearbox oil, get it done. Its much cheaper as a first step, compared to taking the gearbox apart to check for wear or damage.
