I'd like not to have to post this message, but the problem with my 2007 VW Rabbit's near stalls on normal acceleration has not only continued but increased in frequency. Now it occurs almost daily. If you have an 07 Rabbit, 2.5 automatic and are new to this dilemma, please get on board and describe it for those who have had a similar problem. For the 2nd time I will file ... Read More
Wow, great deal! I bought a 2007 Rabbit 2-door last April but it had 34k miles on it and steel wheels, and I paid $11k for it and thought I got a great deal. Mine was VW Certified with the 6-year, 74k mile warranty. Is yours VW Certified? That was the main reason I got that particular car, as I wouldn't have to worry about major bills for several years.
What a great way to go and a great value on a used car. I just picked this car up yesterday from Boardwalk Volkswagen in Richardson, TX. This was the most pleasant experience I have ever had in buying a car (and I have bought MANY in my time) So its a silver 2007 Rabbit 2 dr 27k miles with 16" alloys, center console, Gorilla Mats all the way around (including ...

I have a 2007 vw rabbit. The first oil change I got on it I took it to the dealership and they used synthetic oil. After that I took it to big-o and they guy there told me I didnt need to use synthetic, so I haven't been. I've been driving it for 2 years and just recently when I went to start it, it made a horrible knocking and sputtering ... Read More
I said goodbye to my 2007 Rabbit yesterday. It was a great car which I loved to drive, and cost me only gas and insurance during the 8 months I owned it. But my wife has a bad back and it was hard for her to climb in and out of it (although she too liked driving it). Also, we recently sold our minivan and were left with two small cars. ... Read More
Purchased the above car (only option was the allow wheels) on November 24, 2007 in Southeast. MSRP $17,655 Invoice $ 17,174 Paid $16,868 You can definitely get a decent deal on this car (used multiple dealer quotes to pressure the price down to what I wanted to pay). Wish it had a center armrest though.
Hi imgdoc, from which dealer did you bought your rabbit? Thanks for the information..
Congrats on your new Rabbit! I did a similar switch back in April, went from a 2005 Jetta GL 2.0 (with AT though) to a 2007 Rabbit 2 door (with AT also). I liked the Jetta, but had it only 3 months before it was totaled. But I made out OK in the switch, as the Rabbit is clearly a better car than my Jetta. As you noted, more power (I ... Read More
Car-Man or anyone, I'm looking to lease a 4 dr with auto and sunroof, for 36 months/10K miles per year. Do you have, or can pls tell me where I can get the MF, residual, acquisition fee and security dep. fee for a 2007 or 2008 Rabbit? Thanks in advance.
I GOT IT!!! YEAHHH! It is the grey one. 2Door, auto, 16" alloy, MSRP $17,105. There was one green also but I kind of fell for the grey. The saleswoman was professional.

I second your comments. I just bought a 2007 Rabbit 6AT 2-door, dark blue, 34k miles with VW warranty (factory + VW Certified) until April 16, 2013 or 74k miles. I paid $11,050 + T&L (MN, 6.5% tax), or $12,090.50 OTD. (My deal included a $200 coupon from the dealership chain.) The dealer's "special Internet price" on the car was $11,995 + T&L.

I have this problem of the bass 'spiking' also on the radio in my 2007 Rabbit. Turns out there is a VW technical bulletin about it, and the dealer did a software update for the radio. It seemed to fix it so far, but I just had it fixed 5 days ago, so we will see, I guess. I thought I heard a small bass spike the other day, but nothing ... Read More

I purchased a new 2007 Rabbit in January, it has about 9,000 miles on it and has stalled out 6 times now when i've been in neutral stopped at a traffic light. It will just die out after 10 seconds or so of sitting in neutral. It seems to happen randomly, not consistently at all...people at VW tell me i'm crazy, they can't find anything wrong... Any ideas, anyone??!!

I have a 2007 4 door auto Rabbit that has had a vibration in the steering wheel since day one. During the final portion of the deal when buying the car I had the dealer add mag wheels instead of the 15" stock steel wheels.

I am not complaining, didn't mean to make it sound that way. I am very happy with my Rabbit. When I went to purchase the car I didn't know the '08 was out. The VW web site still shows the 2007.

Lumping all cars manaufactured by the various companies within a givin nation seems pretty pointless. Let's face it... no company has a perfect batting avg. for all cars inall segments.

There was no comparison, the Rabbit won hands down. For starters, the VW was MUCH quieter while driving. I felt like I could hear everything on the road in the Mazda, and I had to raise my voice to talk to my wife. The Rabbit also felt much better on the road, including some acceleration superiority over the Mazdajust test drove those two cars because I was on the fence. Thats ... Read More
While reading through this forum, I came across a few people who were confused about DSG (available on the GTI version of this car), and “Tiptronic.” Here’s my attempt to clarify the situation: DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) is a true manual gearbox, with a computer-controlled clutch and (therefore) no driver-operated clutch pedal. It’s essentially the same technology employed in Formula 1 cars, as well as in a lot of high-end sports ... Read More
I picked up my black 2007 Rabbit 5dr 6AT from a dealership in Toronto last February, and have now driven about 8500 kms (5200 mi).

I was also able to get the dealership to sell me the Monster Mats for $72. I told them that I could get it much ... Read More
The 2008 production model should hit the dealers showroom by mid August 2007. Aside from the 170HP 2.5 litre engine, the new production model will have a revised front end similar to other VW products, like the 2007 Jetta.

THIS IS A COMPARISON: Build Quality - Both cars seem pretty even when looking at the build quality. Fit and finish were excellent and the VW appears to have only a slight edge. Ride Quality - Both cars offer very good Ride quality. Some would say that the VW is more refined, and that may be true to an extent but I noticed that at moderate speeds on rough roads the ...

Just to weigh in here. I own a 2007 VW Rabbit 2-door. This car really is a blast to drive and has more power at 80mph in 5th gear than any of my previous cars had in 3rd or 4th.

yeah, i actually hopped (no pun intended ;) ) on vw vortex last night and found out that it is going to be an ecu upgraged and a re-worked intake manifold that the dealer can do, for an extra charge ofcourse.

I went to buy a 2007 from a dealer at Cowell Motors in Richmond, Vancouver. He said the computer system wouldn't allow him to place the order. Instead he got an order screen for the 2008 Rabbit.

Thanks for starting this. Here's a tip, though. It's important to put the right cars in the categories when you create a discussion.

Anyway, that's just for another time. I set them up for you here. Carry on!

At $17.6-19.6k starting prices (assuming your friend is correct about the $2000 increase in 2007), the Rabbit will be overpriced IMO--considering that you can get a Fit or Versa for under $15k or a well-appointed Mazda3s for under $18k. If VW wants to stay competitive in this hatchback market, I think they are going to need to leave the pricing about where it is.
VW's return to the entry level platform will probably be the Fox made in Brazil. Canadian review link posted here talks about the August announcement. No indication of what the Canadian model will be like. Fox like the New Swift is not likely to make it to the US until 2010. Based on build I think VW might shake things up and under cut both of the 3-door entry level hatches ... Read More

There is a combination of the cars coming in. For example, I have one 2 door and four 4 doors. Every dealer should have adequate inventory later this month. The cars are being released from the ports on June 5 so it may be possible that the car will be there by the middle of the week depending on where you are.
Hi again hollyatvw, My 02 Passat lease ends on July 7th so I am hoping , I will like the Rabbit enough to buy one. I am wondering if the 4 door will in the first shipments. There is so much speculation on the web that the first rabbits will be 2 door and only in black or silver and that the 4 door will be in the the light interior. ... Read More
yes I am a saleslady! technically the release date is june 15th however they will be sneaking onto our lot i'm thinking next week! they are going to be 2007's.
I've heard a lot of different things... Consumer reports says quality is "below average"... a realative of mine has a VW;loves it and has had no problems... a friend of mine has one; again, loves it and has had not problems. Though I do not know much more than you do.
Wow. I am waiting to drive a rabbit. Heated seats, this must be an option. I have heard that the first rabbits released will be as 2006's with the 07 later in the year. Yes, please post when they arrive at your dealership. Are you a salesperson?
I work for vw and have recently driven the rabbit... I LOVE IT! It is larger than the 4th gen golf (which I have now!) The new 2.5 engine in that car is amazing. More than enough power. Handles like a dream. Another thing I like about the rabbit is it comes with cloth interior with the added feature of heated seats! If you have stepped onto the showroom floor of ... Read More
2007 Rabbit=Golf MkV No difference other than bumpers, lights, and equipment levels specific to North America. It is the same as the German Golf.
Also, for anyone questioning the potential reliability factor of the Rabbit, these are rolling off the Wolfsburg assembly line, they are not Hecho en Mexico. That is not good. :( Puebla VW Manufacturing has higher quality than the Wolfsburg plant. It is too bad the Rabbit is not being made in Puebla. The last generation Golf was made in Curitaba Brazil which had more defects per vehicle than Wolfsburg. Was hoping ... Read More
A VW salesman told me that the Rabbit is SMALLER than the Golf MK V. I don't think this is correct, is it? I thought the Rabbit was merely a Golf V w/ a different badge and options. Anyone?
According to VW of North Scottsdale, they will have six Rabbits delivered to their dealership on May 29th. There will be six of them, 2 two doors and 4 four doors, with 2 being 5 speeds and the remaining 4 automatics. Also for anyone questioning the potential reliability factor of the Rabbit, these are rolling off the Wolfsburg assembly line, they are not Hecho en Mexico. I am looking forward to ... Read More
To Z_Man: Yesterday I spoke with one of the internet managers from the VW dealership in North Scottsdale and he told me that they will have approximately 6 Rabbits coming in sometime during the 4th week of May. If I remember correctly they had 2 two doors and 4 four doors in a few different colors: red, black, and silver. These guys are pretty on the ball, Berge VW in Mesa ... Read More
Availability begins in June and selection will improve in July according to regional VW rep..
... and then you will find that the typical VWs of the past had about twice as many problems in a given time than the most "reliable" cars. That is, they were not catastrophically worse, but probably enough to make ownership a bit more inconvenient than the best. Warranty and longevity were good (after the auto trans manufacturer was changed ~6-8 years back), so long term, they have always been quite ... Read More
I'd refer you to the only publically available large scale statistical analysis of US VW automobile reliability: Consumer Reports Annual Auto Issue or their 2006 buying guide for cars. No matter how much some people want to beleive that Consumer Reports is being paid off by Toyota and Honda to make American and European manufacturers look bad, it's solid information. Buying a VW is trade off: you give up reliability in ... Read More
Years ago, my first VW was a two tone van and it just keep running til I traded it in. Today I have an 02 Passat and have had no problems and a very good experience with the service department. Before that, I had a new Beetle as does my friend. Hers is an O1 and no problems. I traded in for the Passat, because I found the Beetle too small ... Read More
I'm really interested in this vehicle, but have heard and read worrisome things about VW reliability. Does anyone have any experience/information to share in that regard?
2007 VW Rabbit Affordable German engineering has returned in the form of the VW Golf renamed the Rabbit for the US/Canadian markets. Starting at just a hare under $15,000 dollars it competes very well with Japanese and outruns the domesting competitors.
