Unlike past VWs, this Rabbit with 48,000 miles, has been totally trouble- free and rock solid. No problems or rattles and still as enjoyable to drive now as on day one. Spirited driving has yielded average 25.8 mpg. (range 19.8 to 32.2) Reliability problems are in the past so I have no choice but to stay in the VW family
Wonderfull steering feel, and adequate power provide the (farfignuten) fun to drive feeling, missing in most smaller cars. Hatchback is way to useful to ever consider a sedan again.
Cruise control feature is logical, but location has me grabbing the directional stick by mistake at times (and versa visa). Just put it on the steering wheel where it belongs. Sound system OK but no Monsoon.
